Iverson takes leave of absence
Allen Iverson has left the Memphis Grizzlies to deal with a "personal matter". There is no telling what the "matter" is. I can’t in good conscience say he is leaving because he is miffed about his role on the team and isn’t man enough to accept it because he very well could have something going on in his personal life. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, but if he goes AWOL I will not be shocked. He clearly doesn’t want to come off the bench for this team, and while Lionel Hollins says he may try to work Iverson into the starting lineup, he probably won’t be starting every night if that happens. I hope Iverson gets his issues straightened out and returns to the team because he can be a good contributor when he puts his mind to it.
