Allen Iverson Sighting

There’s been an Allen Iverson sighting, not on an NBA court though.  Iverson made his debut for Besiktas Cola Turkey and scored fifteen points.  I have a hard time understanding how all thirty NBA teams passed up on Iverson.  We don’t know what happens behind closed doors, but if Iverson was willing to take a lesser role, how can a team not take him into consideration.  If Darko Milicic and his dyed blonde hair is floating somewhere around the NBA why can’t Iverson?

If Kwame Brown and his 3 points per game is making money for playing basketball how can Iverson not be used somewhere?  Sometimes I wonder who is evaluating talent for NBA teams (See Michael Olowokandi).  How do these talent scouts evaluate talent and whether or not to take a chance on a guy who has scored 24,368 career points.  You also can’t tell me Iverson is happy in Turkey, if he can swallow his pride to play for a Turkish team, I’m sure he can be the seventh or eight guy off an NBA team’s bench.
