Iverson, who left 76ers after a Dec. 20 game against the Bulls to be with his sick 4-year-old daughter, was spotted partying during his leave. His wife filed for divorce on March 4, the same day the Sixers announced he wouldn't play for the rest of the season.
Inquirer columnist Stephen A. Smith's troubling piece says Iverson has been banned from casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit. More than that, it says what we already know. The pound-for-pound toughest guy in the league needs help anywhere he can find it.
Iverson's Twitter message admits that he's going through a rough patch, but in the next breath talks about what he believes as misinformation being circulated about him.
To my fans: You all know that my life isn't perfect. I am going through some very tough times right now, like I am sure that we all do from time to time. However, I will stand tall like always with "rhino" thick skin. Even though I have become used to hearing people say things about me that aren't true, it still hurts. I encourage you to continue your ongoing support and I want you to trust that this is another obstacle in my life that, with God's help I will overcome. God Bless You All.Smith's piece cited "multiple" league sources and he's covered Iverson for many years, so I'm personally inclined to believe him. Are you?
