Late yesterday afternoon we posted about a D-League team in Texas potentially making a run at getting Allen Iverson to suit up for them this season in the hopes of making a full-fledged NBA comeback. Before we could even get really excited about the prospect of A.I. crossing over some young bucks in the D-League, Iverson shot down that idea today on his Twitter. Sad.

I thank Donnie and Dallas for the consideration and while I think the D-League is a great opportunity, it is not the route for me.

I realize my actions contributed to my early departure from the NBA, should God provide me another opportunity I will give it my all
