Allen Iverson

Allen Iverson (born June 7, 1975 in Hampton, Virginia) is an American basketball player. He is a all-star point guard for the Philadelphia 76ers. In high school, Iverson was a spectacular all-around athlete who was regarded not only as one of the top basketball players in the country, but also arguably the country's top high school football quarterback. He opted for basketball, enrolling at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C, which does not play top-level football.

Iverson has also occasionally been involved in incidents with the legal authorities, dating back to his teenage years. One such incident involved a family party where he allegedly threatened his wife with a handgun. He has so far escaped incarceration.
