Wow, just wow. This brings back good ol’ memories. Remember The Questions? Remember the Reebok commercials featuring AI? We’ll he’s back.
Watch AI show off his handle alongside Swizzy.
Allen Iverson is on the NBA legends promotions tour in China alongside former greats, such as Stephon Marbury, Shawn Kemp, Clyde Drexler, and Dennis Rodman. Here’s the game highlight A.I. in Shenzhen’s game on 3rd May, 2012
Allen Iverson scored 27 points and also had a number of nice pass. A.I.’s team won 119-109 over Marbury’s team which is the Champion of CBA this year. A.I.’s team has won for three straight game in this China tour.
In the latest Beşiktaş Cola Turka match, Allen Iverson posted 11 points and 5 rebounds but narrowly came up short against Galatasaray. With seven seconds left, Beşiktaş got the ball inbounds from the far end of the court and A.I. ran it up, driving right through the lane as he had earlier in the period to beat a four-on-one situation in the lane. Iverson then fed Michael Ignerski for the jam with a second to play … but the big man bounced it off the rim instead. (See video below for some Iverson highlights and Beşiktaş’ sad ending.)

Allen Iverson makes European debut for Besiktas Cola Turka
Former NBA MVP Allen Iverson made his debut for Besiktas Cola Turka in a 94-91 loss against Hemofarm Stada. The ex-NBA MVP produced 15 points, three rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes in Istanbul on Tuesday.
During the game, Turkish fans cheered the 1996-97 NBA Rookie of the Year. At one point, the crowd at the venue cheered, “Allen Iverson, the son of Besiktas Cola Turka.”
The latest news to surface is that Allen Iverson’s chance of playing in China is looking less likely. The negotiations apparently aren’t going anywhere. According to a source from the Chinese team Foshan, the financial terms could not be agreed with the 35-year-old guard.
It seems that Allen Iverson will remain as a free agent at the moment, potentially hoping for an NBA team to sign him. This could be good news for the majority of Allen Iverson fans, except of course for his fans in China.
Check out this video of the last time Allen Iverson toured China as part of the Reebok “I Am What I Am” Tour back in 2005:

Hopefully this won’t be the last we see of AI.
Here’s AI’s highlight play of the All-Star Game 2009. He does a quick spin move near center court to shake off Chris Paul, drives down the lane, fakes out Tim Duncan, and lays it in over Yao Ming. Looks like AI is still quicker than the best All-Stars in the game now.
