SOURCE – Allen Iverson apparently had quite the technique for picking up eligible bachelorettes. While Michael Jordan had a guy that would distribute business cards to women he wanted to court, A.I. had a team of 10 at each game: four in the nosebleed section, four in the lower, and two courtside. According to DJ/drummer/musician Questlove, a Sixers season ticket holder, “They work the entire stadium like a lion seeking whom they may devour,” he explained “Their game is tight son….they roll real quick with business cards….after party with AI…and if they have a date, it’s all good. Once dropped off to the crib you can dial the number and they will car service you to the location.”
Quest claimed if he wasn’t such good friends with Iverson – and if he didn’t take the precaution to never leave his dates alone for more than a couple minutes – he would have lost many ladies to the unstoppable love machine that is A.I.
Allen Iverson fucks and pound for pound AI has the best off the court stories that some have even turned into urban legends. Supposedly he used to keep money in his house in trash bags and one time he bought a car because he forgot where he parked his in an airport parking lot.
Nonetheless, Iverson spent his money carelessly. He used it to purchase gifts for his friends and family and also fell into bad habits. He reportedly kept money in garbage bags around his mansion, some of which went missing. At one point, he bought a new car because he forgot where he parked the old one at the airport.
One time he partied for 72 hours straight on All-Star Weekend and then won ASG MVP. The City Line TGI Fridays was kept in business solely because he’d bring strippers before they had the Endless Apps and run up $40k tabs. I love A.I. taking credit for the success of the TGI Fridays.
The star first fell for the joint while living down the street from a location in Philadelphia, and he gave a gem of an explanation: “It’s a down-to-Earth restaurant. I like doing things like that. Unless I’m, like, taking my girl out. I’ll take her to the real expensive, you know, exotic restaurants. Other than that, when I’m hanging with my friends, we just like to go to a spot where we can chill out. And we like the food there, so it’s always been love at Fridays … By me going there, it ended up being the no. 4 Fridays in the country. So, I did a lot for them too.” Iverson’s go-to order? The Philly cheese wrap, of course.
None of that shit could happen now with social media and cameras. AI would probably be out of the league in 5 years. Back in the day a guy could just throw around his money at a casino or a strip club or even TGI Fridays and no one would care.
