Allen Iverson

What would be my answer to the question, "So, who's your least favorite professional athlete of the past 25 years?"

I've heard the name before... other then that I couldn't tell you a single thing about the guy... including what sport he plays.

He plays basketball (very selfish, you wouldn't like him).

WD would love Allen Iverson,he's a staunch progressive democrat who is very intune to todays political scene.

WD should scour the net looking for some of Iverson's political musings.

He did a extraordinarily good one on "practice", as I recall.

Rusty Shackelford said...

"Practice?" "Its practice."

According to Wikipedia... On February 24, 2004, Iverson urinated in a trash can at Bally's Atlantic City casino and was told by casino management not to return.

Does this explain why Rusty doesn't like the guy and "insults" him by calling him a "staunch progressive Democrat"? I doubt there are any "political musings" to be found. I'm not going to do even one search, much less "scour".

Wikipedia also says...

On December 9, 2005... Iverson paid a late-night visit to the Trump Taj Mahal. After winning a hand at a three-card-stud poker table, Iverson was overpaid $10,000 in chips by a dealer. When the dealer quickly realized the mistake and requested the chips back, Iverson refused and a heated head-turning argument between him and casino staff began.

He chumped Trump. Good going.

I doubt he's going to be invited to Celebrity Apprentice any time soon.

Marvin "Tire Iron" Barnes, George McGinnis, Al Tatum (Wasn't he the guy that paralysed Darryl Singley?), Ray Lewis (He seemed to have redeemed himself a bit.), Mike Tyson (After he bit Holyfield's ear off...)Kermit Washington (After he caved in Rudy Tomjonovich's face...). I haven't named the NHL guys for the stick attacks...Marty McSorley???

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

Yeah, McSorley was one and the other was a fellow by the name of Todd Bertuzzi - cold-cocked the guy from behind and the poor bastard is still suffering....I should probably change my vote, huh?

Marcus said...

Forgot about Lance Renzel and Michael Vick too...also there was some linebacker that played for the Jets a few years back...Bryan Cox maybe? I didn't care for him.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

Yeah, Lance. The dude had Joey Heatherton at home and instead goes chasing after jail-bait. Some damn serious issues there.
