Allen Iverson’s Manager: Pistons Lied

by September 14, 2009

According to Gary Moore, the Detroit Pistons weren’t exactly truthful with his client last season: ”He went there, and he couldn’t really trust what people had told him,’ said Gary Moore, Iverson’s business manager and grade-school football coach. ‘People in Detroit weren’t very truthful with him.’ According to Moore, Iverson had been told that he would be the leader of the team when he arrived, and that was not what played out. The players were upset that the front office had traded away Chauncey Billups, Moore said. Iverson was persona non grata before he even showed up. ‘Allen couldn’t do anything about that,’ Moore said. ‘When you lie to him, that affects him.”‘
