A Broken Allen Iverson Saying He’s Ready To Play Russian Roulette Paints A Cold Reality Over Our ‘Drunken Gambling Iverson’ Caricature
This is a small clip from Brooklyn boxer Adrien Broner’s ongoing YouTube reality show About Billions, and my God is it depressing. We’ve made our fair share of drunk (possibly coked-up) Iverson jokes here and poked fun of his gambling and marriage problems, but the thought of a man who once held hero status for millions of basketball fans being at this low point cuts deep. AI is one of the most beloved Philadelphia athletes of all-time, and while that may seem strange to those outside of Philly considering all of his off-the-court issues, it was greatly powered by Allen’s inability to hide his emotions. Everything Allen Iverson feels is visible to the world. And in only 46 seconds we can clearly see that these days he’s not feeling so great.
Fuck the jokes — get yourself better, Allen.
