Allen Iverson Set to Retire From NBA…Really Soon

Ever since his mozzarella stick-heavy trip to Turkey, it’s kind of a foregone conclusion that Allen Iverson’s NBA days are over. But he hasn’t officially retired. Until…very soon, apparently.

Allen Iverson is prepared to officially announce his retirement from the NBA in the coming days, a source close to the native of Virginia told SLAM.

Take all anonymous sources with a grain of salt–especially when their news concerns a guy as mercurial and unstable as Iverson. Still, given his recent family difficulties and cathartic reunion with the Sixers a few months ago, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him try in earnest to move on from his past. [SLAM]
