Default Anybody ever hear about Allen Iverson having anxiety issues?

I was just talking to somebody about this, and he's sure of it. I can't find any proof that supports this claim.

Anybody else hear of Iverson struggling with anxiety issues?

Allen Iverson never had anxiety issues.

Anxiety had Allen Iverson issues.

I havent heard that but I am sure I have heard a number of reports over the years of NBA players having anxiety and fear of flying etc, and going unnamed.

He dropped like 50 in his first NBA finals game. I don't think he got nervous on a basketball court. The pressure doesn't get much worse than that.

Anxiety and nervousness are not the same, nor are depression and sadness. Should be noted.

I read this somewhere. I have his bio dvd and book it may have been in there. Don't know if it was a fear of flying or what though. Anxiety issues covers a wide array of things that cause panic attacks and the like.

The gambling problem is well known, but I've not heard much about anxiety problems though. If anyone has a link or source, would be happy to read.
