Guaros de Lara MVP: Allen Iverson?

Guaros de Lara MVP: Allen Iverson?

Bad stories about awesome athletes can really suck sometimes.
Reports (some generated by his own camp) are now emerging that Allen Iverson is once more attempting a return to the NBA -- albeit through non-traditional means.
Iverson is allegedly interested in signing with teams in the Caribbean, South America or even the D-League in an attempt to take one last shot at the Association.
A source tells ESPN's Chris Broussard: "Allen only wants to play if there's a possibility that it leads to the NBA," the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity. "That's the only way he would go to one of these lower leagues. He wants to get back to the NBA and leave the game on his terms."
This renewed interest in basketball happens to come just days after a Georgia judge garnished funds from the former Sixer to pay-off an $860,000 debt to a jeweler.
Broussard goes on to claim that Iverson has not received any direct interest from NBA teams, but has has fielded some calls from the Los Angeles Lakers D-League affiliate -- the Los Angeles Defenders.
As mentioned in the title, Iverson has also garnered some interest from a Venezuelan club named Guaros de Lara, though no formal contract has been offered.
So, if we're getting this straight, a once-great-but-now-past-his-prime superstar is trying to recreate himself in South of the border? Where have we seen this before?

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

The Eagles have signed former Dolphins offensive guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/futures contract. 

Thomas, 27, was drafted by the Dolphins in the third round (No. 77) out of Tennessee in 2013 and was with them until this past season.  

In his four-year career, Thomas has played in 37 games with 26 starts. He started nine games in 2014 and started all 16 games at left guard in 2015. 

Thomas (6-5, 315 pound) and 2014 third-rounder Billy Turner were both released in October after a poor showing agains the Titans. While Thomas was the team's starter at left guard in 2015, rookie Laremy Tunsil took over that position with the Dolphins in 2016. 

In 2015, when Thomas started all 16 games at left guard, he was ranked as the worst guard in football by ProFootballFocus. He gave up 10 sacks, 10 QB hits and 36 QB hurries. 

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout sure does win a lot when the Eagless beat the Cowboys.

Not only did the Los Angeles Angels outfielder get a touchdown ball from Carson Wentz during the Eagles win over the Cowboys to cap off the season, but he also won a bet on the game with a friend.

Turns out, Trout had some sort of bet with DJ Cottrell, whose Twitter profile says he is from Trout's hometown of Millville, NJ. Cottrell is likely a Cowboys fan and came up on the losing end.

"The fact I have to wear an entire Eagles uniform to the gym for a week is going to be the death of me," he Tweeted on Tuesday.

Then he posted a photo of himself in the ridiculous football uniform while posing alongside Trout.

It's good to be Mike Trout. Not so much a Dallas Cowboys fan these days.
