I can't believe it! He's the former MVP of the league, the franchise player for the 76ers, and he goes out and does something stupid like this. I hope he doesn't go to prison, it would ruin him, the 76ers and the NBA. It's so entertaining to watch him play, and now he may never play again.:no:

He wont get convicted of all the charges I really doubt that. Sports players have done worse things before and havent spent a day in jail (ie. Ray Lewis, OJ Simpson)

That is alot of charges all together

Criminal trespass, felony, two counts

Criminal conspiracy, felony, one count

Violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, felony, one count

Violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, misdemeanor, one count

Simple assault, misdemeanor, two counts

Terroristic threats, misdemeanor, two counts

Unlawful restraint, misdemeanor, two counts

False imprisonment, misdemeanor, two counts

Possession of an instrument of crime, misdemeanor, one count

-Does not look for Iverson.

In the name of team-oriented basketball, Allen Iverson should be put behind bars

I don't think Iverson did everything he was charged with and the prosecution can't really prove anything other than he broke in. I get the feeling that Jones(The cousin) decided to presh charges just so he could get some money and after he does, the charges will be dropped.......

Even though I have made love for him as a player, I can't get over him as a person. He has done so many stupid things. For this, it has already screwed up his "image" so even if he doesn't go to jail i still don't have the respect for him, that i once did.

i personally think when all of this is over and if he does come and play basketball again, it won't be for the 6ers. he causes the organization too much trouble and havoc...so they'll probably just trade him away....u never know...thats my gut feeling.

i dont get why a cousin would press charges anyways? i mean if i was a close friend or a family member to iverson i wouldnt press charges, i would think in my head it a mistake and i know he wouldnt do anything to me, unless there is a battle goin on between them or something, but in general why would he just press charges to get some money? i mean what is the real point in that? the way i think about it, doesn't he get money from iverson, they are family. i'd help a family member out if i was a millionaire.

Confused?

I thought Iverson threatened his cousin's roomate? Wasn't he looking for his cousin and his wife?

Yeah most of those charges will get thrown out. He'll probably be left with fines and community service. Maybe long probation.

He didnt threaten his cousin:no: He was looking for his wife and his cousin, but his cousins roomate(charles Jones) was the only one there and would not let him in. he flashed Jones a gun and said "Someones gonna die tonight, and its not gonna be me" So he forced his way in there.

I'd love to see Iverson go to prison. That would be funny as hell. Well if he does go to prison, hopefully he can handle the soap as well as he can handle the basketball. Iverson is a criminal and he needs punished. I'd love to see the 76ers without Iverson too, a 12-70 team probaly. I bet 76ers are wishing they'd traded Iverson now. Ofcourse if he was with another team in another city this probaly wouldnt have happened but oh well. GIVE IVERSON THE CHAIR! ( or atleast lethal injection)

In the USA court system, people are presumed innocent until proven guilty. I like that system, as a US citizen, don't you? :D
