Some compared it to a Beatles-esque mob scene, others saw it slightly differently. Either way, A.I. is now in Turkey (at long last) and the fun begins:

What’s with the matching ties and striped seams?
he looks so uncomfortable
AI’s new posse!
Some things just don’t seem right………..
AI getting the love he deserves
rockin the phillies hat love it!
sigh. so sad. he should be in the NBA.
lol… he used to get this treatment in the NBA… boy how time flies
I would have purposely missed the flight if I knew that I had to go through THAT.
it gets crazier, how about being welcomed by 32,000 supporters?!? – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqqkfQnJKtQ
I just like how we need video proof.
He said he wanted to feel wanted, well he obviously is.
I think the big bodyguard behind AI should be in the NBA. Looks like he can check most of them centers! Show them where you belong AI; back to the NBA!
whens his first game?
his debut will be on nov 13 at home against a team called Oyak Renault.
They was singing his theme song…..
still the man!!!! Phillies fitted on
lol gotta love European sports fans and their songs/chants lol, AI is gonna rip out there.
Nice to see him getting love, too bad it isnt from our country..
Gonna miss him big time in the NBA, dude needed some more credit…Bad decision on his part though,
Will he become the greatest american player to ever play in europe above dominique wilkins and sugar ray richardson?It will be fun to watch though i can see a couple of teams that could have used AI (charlotte new jersey among others..) L
Allen Iverson is now a real life Kenny Powers.
Hope he gets his call back to the big leagues in due time too.
L: George Gervin and Bob McAdoo played in Europe. And dominated. Throwing that out there.
There is a direct correlation between people who think Iverson should be in the NBA and those who think its a matter of time before T-Mac returns to the T-Mac of old.
Well, it is official.
Jesus is black…
i feel sad watching this…
So if Hedo Turkoglu is the Michael Jordan of Turkey, then what does that make AI now?
Lol @ Michael NZ. Thats hilarious but true. Although I do think he could start at PG for a team like the Bobcats. I mean, does DJ Augustine have that much upside to keep AI off the starting lineup
I feel confident he will lead the league in scoring. If not scoring, def fgas.
Sights I never thought I’d witness in my lifetime: Allen Iverson rocking Hummel.
That must have felt good in the soccer stadium. But beware, european sports fans are just as fickle as any others, Allen. Gotta earn their adoration on the court, man.
Love Iverson. One of the best point guards of our time and definitely thee best crossover. It’s sad to see him have to leave the NBA and go to Europe. I hope it all works out for him.
Are they playing in the Euroleague?
He didn’t look too comfortable out there.
raise your hands if you ever thought there was a slight possibility of you ever imagining reading such headlines as this one:
“Allen Iverson arrives in Turkey”
to me that is like someone telling that pigs fly! i hope i am M.Burns and not Smithers in that infamous Simpsons clip.
Besiktas is not playing in the Euroleague
This is surreal! If I could go back in time and tell my 16 year old self about this, the young me would pass out
Still reppin Philly! Good luck Chuck!
A toast to AI, here’s to being wanted! The look on his face screams, careful what you ask for, lol! I think he will do well over there.
ESPN’s headline states AI was “greeted by dozens of fans.” Dozens, eh? Guess he really has revitalized his career!
damn, this makes me want to move to turkey. looks so homey there.
