Many stories have been written about Allen Iverson’s fall from glory. Since his NBA days ended, he has still made headlines — but for all the wrong reasons. His friends and associates have reportedly attempted to help him, but the former NBA MVP has been hesitant to accept any outside offers of aid. Unfortunately, we may have just witnessed a new low.
In the video below, Iverson looks and sounds suicidal. He talks about playing Russian Roulette — and repeatedly states how serious he is about it. He also doesn’t sound totally coherent. Previous reports indicate he struggles with alcohol.
I know people have tried to help but it may be time to hold an intervention to get him the help his apparently needs. As it stands, either Iverson is a great actor or he’s a deeply troubled soul.
Get well soon, AI.
Here is the video. Fast forward to around the 1:50 mark to see Iverson’s suicidal talk.
