Allen Iverson

2009

In September 2009, Iverson agreed to a one-year deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, proclaiming, "God chose Memphis as the place that I will continue my career." He didn't continue it for too long, as the contract was terminated after only three games due to Iverson's displeasure with his role coming off the bench. Iverson announced his retirement but soon thereafter re-signed with the 76ers. He appeared in 28 games but did not play again after taking a leave in late February.
