Nobody but The Answer himself knows the answers to all of the financial and legal questions that keep popping up about Allen Iverson nowadays.  The one thing that is certain about Iverson is that no matter how much negative press he receives, he’s still loved all around the round as an almost cult figure especially in Asia where they worship the crossover king.

Earlier this year, The Answer joined The Professor and his Ballup teammates in a three game Chinese exhibition tour that brought out tens of thousands of fans to the games and in the streets to see the American streetball stars and ex NBA star.

Although Grayson “The Professor” Boucher never made it to the NBA, he also has reached a cult status for breaking ankles and putting on amazing ball handling exhibitions over the past decade on the And1 Mixtapes and now the Ballup Tour which will be on FoxSprots1 TV later this summer.

From the highlights of the video, it looks like Iverson still has a lot of game left in him and there’s no shortage of people that still want to see him play so if AI doesn’t sign with a pro team in the US or overseas, hopefully we get to see him in a few more exhibition events like this.  In the meantime, it looks like we will just have to rewatch and enjoy classic Iverson footage and wait on The Answer.
