Okay, so the headline is a bit misleading. Iverson's headed to Poland, yes, but to play in a Reebok sponsored shootout for Eurobasket. This according to the Polish news outlet, Sports.pl, whose name just kills me. Essentially, that would be like if we had a "sports.com," which (oh look!) we do. It's a gambling site, proving what we already know: Americans are greedy, depraved people. Integrity schmintegrity.
Nevertheless, "Eurobasket 2009. Pluta kontra Iverson!"
If you're looking for news in this nonsense, consider this: if talks with Memphis don't progress quickly, Iverson will be on European soil on September 19th, unsigned, and playing basketball in front of scores of European executives. Allen will be feeling unloved and European owners will be getting all wide-eyed over the prospect of adding an NBA player that still has one of the 3 or 4 biggest names in basketball. You don't think that'll generate some mutual nterest?
In other news, if Allen Iverson ends playing in Europe, someone must develop a reality show around the experience.
