Default Iverson signing with Maccabi Haifa

http://www.jta.org/news/article/2012...d-maybe-longer


October 4, 2012

NEW YORK (JTA) -- Former NBA Most Valuable Player Allen Iverson reportedly will play for Maccabi Haifa in its two exhibition games against NBA teams -- and perhaps longer.

Iverson, 37, will suit up for the Israeli squad when it takes on the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves this month in the United States, the Israeli Sport5 site reported.

Sport5 added that Maccabi Haifa officials are considering signing the perennial NBA All-Star guard to a longer contract if the experiment succeeds.

Iverson was invited to play for Haifa by coach Brad Greenberg, who was a part of the Philadelphia 76ers staff when Iverson starred for the team. Left without a team for this season, Iverson had announced his retirement earlier this year.

When did he retire this year?

I wonder what the chances are of him actually showing up to this game let alone playing a significant amount of minutes and making an impact.

My guess is he'll play in these 2 games and then either go to China, or do nothing. But can't see him staying there any longer than these 2 games.

Hope he's going to China after these two games. He deserves to have a career like Marbury after the NBA.

He tried to stick with NBA teams - could not work because he can't play at the level. Not good enough.

He tried to stick with Besiktas, a Eurocup team (the level below Euroleague) - could not work because he can't play at that level. Not good enough.

Maccabi Haifa? Now that's more like the level he could play at.....Israeli League, one of the worst national leagues in the European basketball system, on one of the league's worst teams.

He can actually have success at that level IMO, and that particular club pays pretty well also. They pay some of their players like $600,000 a year in how the NBA counts salary. This would actually be a good move for Iverson, and the level of basketball, although quite low for European standards, is still higher than the level in China's basketball league.

Plus, there are a lot of Americans in that league and everyone speaks English.

come on AI, just drop 40 in both of these games and you got potential NBA teams who want to sign you up again.
