Allen Iverson tweets he’s signing with the Memphis Grizzlies

September 9, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Nine-time All-Star Allen Iverson announced on his Twitter page this morning that he is joining the Memphis Grizzlies saying:

God Chose Memphis as the place that I will continue my career. I met with Mr. Heinsley, Chris Wallace and my next head coach Lionel Hollins.”

In my opinion it’s been Iverson’s unwillingness to be a team player and accept a role coming off the bench for a winning team, rather then God that landed him with the Grizzlies.  The 34-year-old veteran will reportedly receive an incentive-laden $3.5 million for the 2009-10 season, from the downtrodden Grizzlies. Iverson dismal 2008 season started with Denver, but was traded to Detroit on November 3 after just three games and played 54 games with the Pistons.  Injuries and an inability to mesh with the Pistons team oriented styles brought Iverson who also appears to have lost a step and and his team down before they parted company even before the playoffs started.  The former Georgetown star spent his first 10 full seasons with Philadelphia, leading the 76ers to the NBA Finals in the spring of 2001. He was the league MVP for the 2000-01 season.
