David Stern Reached Out to Allen Iverson’s Camp

by March 23, 2010

The Commish placed a call of concern to A.I.’s people, as did John Thompson. ESPN reports: “NBA commissioner David Stern and legendary former Georgetown coach John Thompson recently expressed concern for troubled ex-76ers guard Allen Iverson, according to Iverson’s longtime business manager, Gary Moore. Stern telephoned Moore Monday and asked how Iverson was coping with the myriad problems that have come his way. Moore said the two spoke for about 10 minutes and he assured the commissioner Iverson is doing fine. ‘David was genuinely concerned for Allen,’ Moore said. ‘He asked about his daughter and his wife. He said that if Allen needed him he knows how to get him.’ Moore said Stern also asked about a recent Philadelphia Inquirer report that said Iverson was battling alcohol and gambling problems.”
