Allen Iverson Says Everyone Is Reaching Out For Shoes And A Job After He Became Vice President Of Reebok

Allen Iverson was recently named the Vice President of Basketball at Reebok, working alongside the President of Basketball, Shaquille O'Neal. Iverson and Shaq discussed the new role at Reebok, with AI revealing that his appointment has led to people constantly asking him for shoes or a job.

This is so good of you, bro, even though I must confess that your 'behavior' and physical appearance while playing and immediately following the end of your career caused me to lose affection for the sport.

Keep it going!

Yes, the tattoos are unsightly. In my opinion anyway.

ZsaZsa says its racist to say anything even remotely disparaging about a great merican. ANY merican is great BTW.

Battybwoy, yu nuh tiad ah dat flex now?

We know you and your crew love calling black people in the N words in private. Why not just come out (no pun intended) and be done with.

You were afraid call Shannon sharp the N word, or the K one like the esteemed peaceful man from India would have, so you pivot and try ah new style. It's played out now.

Why would his tattoos make you lose affection for the sport? Wouldn't his style of play and work ethic be more important?

Glad for him. This guy is a blessed guy and does have 9 lives. He survived being falsely accused of assault in a bowling alley, got sent to prison and was then pardoned by Gov. Douglas Wilder and released. He almost got jailed again for spousal abuse later on in life but his wife gave him second and third chances. He then blew through almost all of his $200M net worth right after basketball retirement and was pretty much broke but was saved yet again by a secret dividend payout established by his brother, manager and Reebok. The payout was $1M annually in dividends from a $33M business account that he couldn't touch until he was 55 years old. Fast forward to present day and Reebok is again showing their appreciation, along with Shaq's involvement as he enters a new chapter as VP of Basketball.

Unlike the greedy and ungrateful Nike, Reebok sees something in this partnership of Shaq and AI.

Sorry JahJah, but I'm unwavering in my thinking that tattoos are unsightly. Try as I may, I can't find anything 'productive' in them.

Apart from women wearing earrings, I have the same repulsion for body piercing(s).
