View Full Version : Report: Allen Iverson signs to play in Dominican Republic

Allen Iverson is back in basketball. But not any kind of basketball you're likely to be watching.

According to the AP, Iverson has signed to play in a regional basketball league in the Dominican Republic for a month. Iverson, 36, has signed to play with Pueblo Nueva, the team's president Milton Nunez told the AP. Nunez did not say how much Iverson would be paid.



Iverson is to arrive Sunday and play for his second-place team that same day against GUG in Santiago province, Nunez said.

“He and his agent have told us that he has been training a lot and that even if he hasn't been playing anywhere, he has what we need to help Pueblo Nuevo,” Nunez said, via the AP report.

Not sure if playing in the Dominican Republic will be enough to show NBA teams he can contribute for a team this season.

I just read somewhere that his agent was approached about it and said he hadn't heard anything about it

It just sad watching a guy of his past caliber hang on like this, on strings. I think many of ys remember his first days in philly where he gave it everyrhing he got to get that team victories.

Kinda reminds me of Jerry Rice after his last years in SF or OAK

Why are we still following this guy? He's a retired NBA player. How about I put up Rashard McCants threads on anything new happening with him? How would you like that? Would you want me to do that? Cause I'll do it.

oh snap!

I'm going!

I don't know much about the Dominican (even though i've lived here for 9 years now lol), but I'm sure I can find wherever these teams are playing.

WOOT WOOT!

only problem with AI was that he squandered his last two chances.

Detroit was a mess.
Philly was a HUGE mess.
Memphis turned out to be horrible.

plus, he didn't win enough with Denver (billups totally helped Melo more).

His mistakes at the end of his career made it that he WOULDN'T be allowed to play for teams (even though he, surely, was a better option than a lot of players).


He's shown that he loves the game, but he effed it up in his last two jobs.

Lol Iverson will be in the hall of fame and was in some discussions about making a return to the NBA this year. He's also some people's favorite basketball player of all-time, not mine but I know they're out there. Until you can say that about McCants or any other average retired NBA player , then don't do it.

This!

I criticized him because he didn't take that 1.4 million deal with the Lakers that would have made him play in the D-League before they brought him up. If this makes him happy then so be it and all the best A.I.

Don't ****ing waste this money either... LOL!

^ hopefully this guy will totally be out of the same exact insults soon, jus sayin.
@NSJ he prolly wont make as much in the Dleague but i feel like the NBA would see that he is more serious about playing in the league if he goes there and does good.
and like chitown85 said, if hes happy then good for him. i jus wanna be able to watch him play again!

:rolleyes: He's far from broke, but that's nice that you'd delight in it if he was.

Those reports of his financial problems were gross exaggerations based on the fact that he didn't pay a jeweler. He was never broke to begin with - people just assumed he was because they figured he couldn't pay, not that he just refused to. In addition to whatever money he has left from the NBA, he has a lifetime contract with Reebok that pays millions every year and has a $30M+ account set aside that he can't touch until he's in his mid 40s but pays out $1M every year. I wish I was that broke.

Dude if you are so certain that Iverson is not broke why don't you get an article to prove everyone wrong instead of just throwing insults around. We like facts on this site so provide us with some and we will be inclined to agree with you.

I read that Iverson is broke and being forced in the court of law to have his earnings garnished until this debt is payed.

Here's a few articles:

http://espn.go.com/espn/commentary/story/_/id/7586365/peyton-manning-allen-iverson-relative-short-lived-athletic-careers-great-players (small blurb in ESPN also confirming this)

http://everyjoe.com/sports/allen-iverson-gets-wages-garnished-848/ (article that shows judge ordered that money be taken directly out of Iversons bank account until debt is payed).

I'll await your link proving otherwise!

http://www.slamonline.com/online/nba/2012/03/allen-iverson-isnt-actually-broke/



A person with a firm grip on the situation informs me Iverson has an account worth $32 million, a principal he is prohibited from touching until 55. In the meantime, it feeds him $1 million annually.

At 45, Iverson is eligible to start drawing on an NBA pension that maxes out at 10 years of active duty, or take whatever’s there as lump sum. He will be entitled roughly to $8,000 per month ($800 per x 10).

If at all possible, Iverson will issue a restraining order against himself until he’s 62 or so. At that time, I’m told, his lump sum will be between $1.5 million and $1.8 million, or he can elect to take monthly checks of approximately $14,000 per.

Reebok Int'l announced last night a lifetime deal with 76ers G Allen Iverson that is projected to pay him about $10M this year, "with minimum guarantees in successive years,"


Reebok Chair Paul Fireman: "This is the only time I've signed, literally, a lifetime contract — one in which we will work every day diligently on behalf of Allen and Reebok."

Yeah Hawk I honestly don't think A.I. is doing this because he's broke. He has no doubt made bad decisions in his life which is the reason as to why he's in the position he's in currently but he isn't as foolish as many make him out to be. As the other poster said he has a saving account that he isn't allowed to have any access at the moment.

In all honesty I think A.I. just wants to prove he can still play the game competitively and just isn't willing to give up until he is sure to himself that he can no longer do so. He says it every time you hear him speak he believes he can still contribute and I see no issue with him doing so.

Posters like you are the entire reason Allen Iverson (an most polarizing athletes) has such a bad rep. You hear initial reports that hold no substance whatsoever and no matter what comes after that you write it off and go with the rumours you heard at the beginning.

Read the 1st link I'm pretty satisfied....

Honestly though just post the links next time to put a stop to the misinformation going around. I would even suggest for you to create a thread proving otherwise so people (like me) know better. I only checked this out when I heard the initial comments about him owing money and not being able to pay. Considering his lifestyle as well I thought it was the truth and that he was broke.

I'm relieved to hear otherwise... Seriously though this info is a thread starter to me I would do it and spread the word if not I'll do it later tonight.

you know, you hear so many conflicting things about his finances, because he has tried to get back into basketball all over the place.

Shoot, I heard recently that his wife is ordering him to give her the names and numbers of every woman he slept with during their marriage. Um, how on earth does an NBA player respond to that? Thats like my girl demanding to see the receipts from every lunch I have eaten in the past 10 years.

From what I read, it seems like the owner of the team just came out and said they were signing Iverson without Iverson knowing anything about it. Perhaps it was just something he assumed he could sign him? Regardless, if the man he's claiming to be signing didn't even know anything about it and is denying it, I doubt it's true...

:laugh2:

I hear you on that one Hawk. I think there is no denying that Allen Iverson has made the wrong basketball and financial decisions in his life so no matter what reports are out there I think that should be understood. However my gripe is people running around saying things that have no solid evidence as if it was actually a fact.

This just isn't an issue with that I have with Allen Iverson but athletes in general. So many guys get bad reps for things that they haven't even been a part of. I mean its the life of a celebrity people are going to say means things for whatever reason which is why we can't believe everything we hear without some form of confirmation.

Lmao, I said in the thread about how reports of AI being broke were FALSE, that that thread would be glossed over and receive nowhere near the attention of a thread that possibly depicts AI in a negative light. Looking at the posts in this thread just confirms what I said would happen.

The worst part is that there are still articles coming out using the INCORRECT information regarding AI's finances, and news outlets that reported an ASSUMPTION, never went back and corrected themselves.

Why? Because, AI not being anywhere close to broke, is not a story. So the media feasts on the "juicy" assumption that "Allen Iverson has no money", and don't follow up with the same amount of coverage when it's proven to be incorrect. They just let the negative FALSE information fester in the minds of the average reader/viewer, and the result is a consensus perception of a man that is NOT true.

Allen Iverson is back in basketball. But not any kind of basketball you're likely to be watching.

According to the AP, Iverson has signed to play in a regional basketball league in the Dominican Republic for a month. Iverson, 36, has signed to play with Pueblo Nueva, the team's president Milton Nunez told the AP. Nunez did not say how much Iverson would be paid.



Iverson is to arrive Sunday and play for his second-place team that same day against GUG in Santiago province, Nunez said.

“He and his agent have told us that he has been training a lot and that even if he hasn't been playing anywhere, he has what we need to help Pueblo Nuevo,” Nunez said, via the AP report.

Not sure if playing in the Dominican Republic will be enough to show NBA teams he can contribute for a team this season.how do you know what kind of basketball I will be watching?

so, is the guy playing over here in the dominican or not?

If so, I'll go and watch a game during the week.

No, this story is false. Just another attempt to hate on one of the best SGs of all time. No disrespect to you, the Dominican Republic, or their basketball league, but this story is aimed for the haters to mock AI.

only problem with AI was that he squandered his last two chances.

Detroit was a mess.
Philly was a HUGE mess.
Memphis turned out to be horrible.

plus, he didn't win enough with Denver (billups totally helped Melo more).

His mistakes at the end of his career made it that he WOULDN'T be allowed to play for teams (even though he, surely, was a better option than a lot of players).


He's shown that he loves the game, but he effed it up in his last two jobs.

Prove it

I'm sure Iverson is very close to broke. A lot of people are saying that the media is making things up. However, usually it comes from somewhere. They don't randomely make up stories about people being broke, otherwise you would hear a lot more of them.

If the offer is actually there than Iverson should probably take it, seeing as how he is "BROKE"

A trust he cannot access till later on. He also gets 5 million a year from Reebok, but you have to take into account that he gets it "annually". He could still be broke at the moment. Also, lets not forget that he is actually in debt (880 thousand for unpaid jewelery bills) among other things. You can have 5 million dollars coming to you and still be broke because you are in debt more than that.
