Iverson on his way to play in Istanbul
The United States and Far East might not want him, but it looks like the Near East does. Which would be good for AI because Turkey straddles the line between Mideast traditions and Eurotrash aspirations.
Here’s the story from ESPN:
What’s the hang up? Iverson wants the amount the team can fine him for individual infractions capped at 1 percent of his one-year $1.5 million contract, which, according to Terrell Owens, is like playing for less than free.
I’m not entirely surprised that Iverson is already anticipating lots of fines. Practice, player conduct issues, even games. Who knows if he would even survive a season in Istanbul—see Grizzlies (2009-2010) and 76ers (2009-2010).
