Default A. I. Thug?

CLASS ACT IVERSON

Monday's Game 4, the season finale.
Nuggets guard Allen Iverson emerged from the locker room with several trash bags filled with shoes he had worn during the season. His personal manager, Gary Moore, said there were 20 pairs.
Iverson went to the Pepsi Center loading dock, where 50 or so fans were waiting on Denver players to sign autographs. Iverson took shoes out of the bags one by one, signing each. Each time he signed one, he passed the shoe onto a fan.
He didn't do it because the media was there. I just happened to walk by and see the event unfold.
It was a class gesture, one even more impressive considering it came immediately after the Nuggets had suffered a devastating sweep at the hands of the Lakers

NUFF SAID

Wow, this is the first time I've heard of this incident. The media seems to only like to portray the negative things AI does. Like when he saved someone from a burning vehicle on the road. Didn't hear much about that one in the sports section. But it was a good thing that he did. I wonder how many pairs he's given away all season. One for just about every game I think.

Well after most games when they sit him down before the end of the game, he takes off his shoes and throws them in the crowd!

Props to him. I remember a year ago when Sam Cassell was with the Clippers, at the last home game of the season he came out with tons of gear and even Sam Cassell masks and signed stuff for fans waiting outside of Staples Center.
