Update: seems like the story of Allen Iverson wanting to play in Sydney may be fabricated by an Australia paper (Daily Telegraph). There is no mention of the tweets on Allen Iverson’s official twitter page.
Daily Telegraph (Australia) claimed that Allen Iverson said (on Twitter) that he would like to end his career in Sydney, Australia.
“I am very happy here in Istanbul, but if I don’t return to the NBA I am considering a move to Australia after my two-year contract is up.
“I hear Sydney is a real good city to live in. my boy Rodney O asked me to come over. I am comin!”
This coming after Sydney basketball icon Rodney Overby and the Sydney Kings team in the Australia NBL step up their bid to bring Allen Iverson.
Kings boss Bob Turner is also working on the bid to lure Iverson to Sydney.
“I’ll definitely pursue the idea of bringing Iverson to the Kings,” Turner said.
“He’s making a lot of money playing in Turkey and fitting him under the NBL’s $1 million salary cap is something we’d have to work on, but I wouldn’t rule him out. It was Iverson who opened the door.”
Realistically, this doesn’t seem possible and Allen Iverson has not come out and officially announced it. It sounds like Allen Iverson has become victim of the Australian media this time.
