Memphis Cancels Iverson

NBA star Allen Iverson is no longer with the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies terminated his contract after he played only three games. It’s possibly the end of Iverson’s NBA career, a roller coaster of a ride that began in Philadelphia in 1996. He was called “The Answer” back then, but since 2006 the one-time league MVP has played for Denver, Detroit and Memphis.

The official site for the Grizzlies — with their statement about Iverson — is here.

No word since November 2nd on Iverson’s Twitter account, and his official site requires registration… and I didn’t think it was worth the effort.

From the NBA, here’s an unintentionally amusing video called “Crossover,” in which Iverson is shown getting the better of Michael Jordan.

Now it seems plain silly to compare Iverson to Jordan, but at one point in the video an Iverson believer says to imagine the skills of Jordan and then “speed it up a little — put that 45 on 33 r.p.m.!” Except that if you put a 45 r.p.m. (that’s a vinyl record, son) on 33 r.p.m. it will sound slower.

This compilation of ten “best moves” is better — great ball-handling, incredible steals and crazy-fast motion.
