Allen Iverson Responds to Report


Ah there it is! Before we dive into the details, I do not take back what I said in my previous post about Allen Iverson. I think the post still stands firm on its own without this recent Iverson news.

It was reported that Iverson signed a contract to play a pick-up game in Ohio. Welp, Iverson says:

I never agreed to do an event in Ohio. I apologize to my fans who came out under false info. Only my agent @MooreMgmtEnt and pr team @_smprincesss can commit me to appearances.

This was him via Twitter. And so now we have our battle. I don’t know what to believe. Deep down I didn’t think that Iverson would lie but why would there be anybody lying about this? Remember, we have this quote too:

“He didn’t give me his word. He gave me a contract,” Simpson said. “This wasn’t a handshake agreement. This was an actual contract that he was going to be here. I never had a conversation with Allen Iverson myself, I didn’t need to. I talked to his people and they assured me he was coming. They told me (Saturday night) he was in the Dayton airport. They assured me he was on the road (to here), but I’m starting to think that that was basically a lie. It was very embarrassing.”

I mean it’s a detailed situation he brings up. Is it a scam? Or did Iverson really screw up? Forgive me President Obama but I have to ask the question, “Where’s the birth certificate contract?” If Iverson signed the contract, then this story is over. We don’t have to worry about it again.

Again, I don’t take back what I said before about the whole role model thing. And obviously this story is not over. But what do you think about it? Who is telling the truth?
