08:49 AM ET 12.23 | Allen Iverson started things on Twitter, saying "If I don't return to the NBA I am considering a move to Australia after my two-year contract is up ... I hear Sydney is a real good city to live." Kings chief executive Bob Turner says he hasn't given up on luring [Iverson] to the harbour city. "I'll definitely pursue the idea of bringing Iverson to the Kings," Turner said. "He's making a lot of money playing in Turkey and fitting him under the NBL's $1 million salary cap is something we'd have to work on, but I wouldn't rule him out."

I live in Australia, still wouldn't go to a NBL match if he was in it. Terrible basketball league.

I think he wants out of Turkey b/c they don't have dog fights there. I mean who allows dog fighting when that's the main course at the local restaurants?
