Sources: Grizzlies, Iverson To Officially Part Ways

And thus ends the brief Allen Iverson experiment in Memphis.  According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, the Grizzlies will waive Iverson after mutually agreeing to terminate his contract.

This means Iverson's Memphis tenure will have ended after just three games.  If this is indeed how one of the most influential players in recent NBA history goes out, it will have been a sudden fall from grace.  As recently as 2008, Iverson was averaging over 26 points per game.  Now, he probably won't be able to find a place to play.  Memphis was the only team willing to give Iverson a chance this summer, and now they have waived him.  I suppose it's possible someone else picks him up, but that's probably as likely as Memphis making the playoffs this year. 

It's only fitting to show this clip on the day of Iverson's likely exit from the league.
