Allen Iverson, NBA icon, struggles with life after basketball – The Washington Post

What a tragedy! This was reminded me of the 30 For 30: BROKE episode in so many ways. Is this a story of being built up to be torn down, was he consumed with his image and by fame? Or is it both? While the media is notorious for blowing things out of proportion, regardless, I just hope he gets the help he needs. Iverson was a role model to many of us for defying the impossible. Arguably one of the greatest NBA players of all time in his prime, it would be interesting to hear his side of the story. 

**Side note** If Iverson made $150 mill and still spiraled out of control, I can only imagine how many less known players fall with less money, with a much smaller name.
