01:53 PM ET 01.29 | News broke yesterday that Allen Iverson was going to attempt an NBA comeback, and that road may lead him to the NBA D-League. The Texas Legends reportedly were ready to offer Iverson a contract but while he appreciated the offer and respects the opportunity the D-League affords players, Iverson said the it just isn't for him. While he's not heading to the NBA minor leagues, Iverson still wants to play in the NBA one more time, and is pursuing all possible avenues to achieve that goal. Iverson said his dream is to "complete" his legacy in the NBA and prove he still has what it takes to ball with the best of them. Remember, Iverson hasn't played in the NBA since 2010 and the reason he quit more than once was because he couldn't hack it anymore. So before you start thinking your team will sign the 2001 Allen Iverson, remember what the 2009 Allen Iverson looked like and then get back to me. But if Iverson is serious about making a legitimate NBA comeback, he's going to need to talk a lot about practice.

That was most likely AI's last shot at returning to the NBA.

Hasn't reached bottom yet. A drowning man will grab any help he can get. A.I., bust them up in the D League & you won't have to worry about offers.
