If the last few Nuggets games have indicated anything, it’s not only that Allen Iverson isn’t slowing down anytime soon, but the Nuggets will only go as far as he can take them.
If the thirty two-year old gets his wish, he’ll be in Denver powder blue until he’s nearly forty. From the Denver Post:
Nuggets guard Allen Iverson has interest in opting out of his current contract — then re-signing with Denver this summer for six years.
“That would be our wish,” said Iverson’s personal manager, Gary Moore.
Iverson, despite his small frame and ferocious playing style, is seemingly unaffected by age, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that he wants to play until his late 30’s.
The Nuggets would be wise to lock him up.
