Good riddance. Allen Iverson is the poster boy for one of the worst eras in basketball history. He is the poster boy for:

A) Athletes who put put themselves above the team.
B) Athletes who only concentrate on scoring and areas that bring personal adulation.
C) Athletes who value personal adulation above winning.
D) Athletes who surround themselves with yes-men and never improve during their career.

There was a whole era of similar players, guys who came into the league with much hype and never lived up to the expectations because, well, they didn't want to. In their eyes they were already legends. AI is the poster boy for that type of player, that lost era of basketball.

My only regret is that this ended in retirement and not blackball. I wanted him to try and come back, but be rejected by every team.

Yeah, you're right...especially the way it happened. I'm sure that ol' Michael didn't shed tears yesterday.

That article is spot on. I challenge anyone to point out an untruth. He's absolutely correct when he said that Iverson flatlined in his early 20s. Name me one skill that Iverson picked up after his first 3 years in the league. One.
