Allen Iverson’s post-playing days are filled with just as many ups-and-downs as his days in the NBA. In 2010, right as his playing days were coming to a close, Iverson’s wife Tawanna, who stood by his side amidst all the craziness of Iverson’s career and life, filed for divorce. She also sought custody of the couple’s five children, along with alimony payments. Even though he insisted otherwise, Iverson’s finances were a mess, as he had two different homes foreclosed upon since 2013.
Iverson was supposed to get things back on track by joining the BIG3 basketball league for retired players, but seemingly quit on the league before it started, then declared he was returning to the league, but only to coach.
