It’s hard to believe that someone with the talent of Allen Iverson could miss out on an NBA career, but the road was not easy for him because of off the court issues. Iverson had a rough life as a boy in Hampton, Virginia. Not only did his mother have a hard time paying the bills, but Iverson was having his own troubles with the law.
An incident at a bowling alley could have ended up with him spending time behind bars. Luckily his sentence was pardoned. That could have derailed a promising basketball career. Iverson didn’t look back from there.
