Default Allen Iverson headed to Australia

How long this will take is unknown but he's made it clear he's heading to Australian NBL club the Sydney Kings sooner or later.
There's numerous reports surfacing on the net in the last hour or so and they've just had a news clip about it on Australian TV.

That would be awesome. I don't see how though as Sydney have already dropped 2 imports and just recently sign 2 new one's so I don't know where there getting the money from.

Did I actually read a Sydney Kings team official say: "He would bring an unprecedented amount of swagger to the team."?

He is talking about after AI completes his contract in Turkey, this wont happen for two years from now and that's if he doesnt find another Euro team to play on.

I'm just waiting on my dude PP to "retire" and go play overseas. It's going to be a pleasure watching him dominate

As for AI...still a huge fan so wherever he goes, I go.

The NBL is a joke, has been for awhile now but I lost most interest in it when SE Melbourne Magic made the ridiculous decision to merge with North Melbourne Giants instead of just letting the Giants die.
I want my Magic back!!!
The big kicker for the NBL was the emergance of Europe as a viable option for international players. Once Paul Rogers, Matt Neilson and Frank Drmic started having success over there the Australian exodus began.
In the 90's and before there was 2 options for Aussie players, NBA or NBL, not the case these days
I'm not really a fan of AI in any sense but him coming to the league may just be the shot in the arm that Australian domestic Basketball needs.

I no the talent level is no where near what the NBA is but I really enjoy watching NBL, we here in Perth love the Wildcats and they sell out every week even though the NBL gets no media play. It's fun to watch as the games aren't controlled by the refs like the NBA, you can back chat them without taking it over the edge and they don't call soft fouls like in the NBA. There are also very few timeouts which is a big winner for me, when I try to watch a NBA game I can get to the second quarter and their have already been 5+ timeouts and I can't watch anymore, over here there aren't more than 5 timeout's per game.

Can somebody just pick him up already so he can retire gracefully? He's crying out for someone to pick him up.

He's in debt, and dealing with a divorce (or something) will need even more money still. Besides, he'll never have a job as much fun as pro basketball player, even if he's in Turkey or Australia.
