I don't the question... But I guess "The Answer" is to be found in Turkey.

Atleast he can bring his Hookah on the Team Bus and not get grief for it :-)

I mean seriously, wtf?unless they are paying him like 8-10 mil+.....what is the end game of playing in freakin turkey?( no offense to any turkish people thaight be on this site)

This IS the end game. That tells you no freaking body wants this egoistic POS. He wouldn't come off the bench, because he thinks players coming off the bench are not even people worthy of any respect.
RIP.

What a loser.

Turkey is definetely NOT Europe!

Iverson always was a loser in my opinion....selfish...he deserves this embarassing ending to a career that could have been superlative..

"I don't know any all stars that'll come off the bench"
"I don't know any MVP's that'll come off the bench"
"I don't know any franchise players that'll come off the bench"


Well... I don't know any of those that'll hang on too long and play in Turkey.

I'd recommend more research. Turkey is a member nation of the Council of Europe (http://www.coe.int/aboutCoe/index.asp?page=47pays1europe&l=en), for example.

Additionally, from the Turkish Odyssey website (http://www.turkishodyssey.com/turkey/turkey.htm): "Although 97% of Turkey is located in Asia, in many respects it is accepted as a European country and as a result, Turkey takes its place in nearly all European contests and associations."
