NBA: Allen Iverson May Face Prison Over Unpaid Child Support Worth $40K

Jun 10 2013, 2:49am CDT | by

Former NBA superstar Allen Iverson is embroiled in a court battle with his ex-wife over unpaid child support which amounts to roughly $40,000.

Former Philadelphia 76er Allen Iverson may face imprisonment over unpaid child support.

The Inquisitr reports Iverson's ex-wife, Tawanna, is claiming he owes over $40,000 in child support. In January, courts forced Iverson to pay $8,000 a month for their five children. Tawanna is saying Iverson never made any of the payments. 

Upon the finalization of their divorce in February, a family court judge ruled in favor of maternal custody and said Iverson has no idea of what it's like to be a father. 

"[Iverson] does not know how to manage the children; has little interest in learning to manage the children and has actually, at times, been a hindrance to their spiritual and emotional growth and development. For example, he has refused to attend to an obvious and serious alcohol problem, which has caused him to do inappropriate things in the presence of the children while impaired. He has left the children alone without supervision. He has left his young daughters in a hotel room with men who are unknown to the mother."

TMZ states Allen and Tawanna are set to be in court this week, where the ex-wife wants Iverson to pay the $40,000 he owes her for child support and even suggest that Iverson be put behind bars for his actions. 

Iverson also paid $3 million to Tawanna in a divorce settlement

He played in the NBA from 1996-2010, averaging 26.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game. He won the 1997 NBA Rookie of the Year Award and was the 2001 NBA MVP. He was named to the All-NBA Team seven times.

As if the expectations for the 2014 NBA draft class weren't already high enough... Featuring Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid and several other tantalizing stars, this year's crop of rookies has long been dubbed as a game-changing group. Now, these young phenoms are drawing a comparison to the famous 1996 class with SLAM Magazine's recreation of the nearly two-decade-old cover photo.  The Milwaukee Bucks Twitter feed provided a side-by-side lo ...

Chauncey Billups was way better than all 16 players traded for him

Sep 10 2014 8:54am CDT | Source: SBNation

Chauncey Billups bounced around the NBA before establishing himself as an All-Star guard during an illustrious 17-year career. All of those teams that traded him should be kicking themselves. Chauncey Billups was not particularly productive early in his career. The same could be said for any number of high draft picks, some of whom go on to illustrious careers. But the difference between Billups and the rest is that the Coloradan got moved around like a marbl ...

Bill Belichick: "We didn't play well enough, coach well enough, or do anything well enough"

Bill Belichick led a characteristically somber press conference after the Patriots’ 33-20 loss in Miami. “We didn’t do anything well enough that we need to do in a game — all the way across the board,” he said. “We’ve got to get back to work and prove in every phase of the game: playing, coaching, offense, defense, special teams — you name it.” “I just don’t think we played well enough, coached well enough, or really do anythi ...

Frank Caliendo Does Allen Iverson's 'Practice' Rant as Morgan Freeman

Sep 4 2014 9:17am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Frank Caliendo does many impressions, but his Morgan Freeman one may be his best. A couple of months ago, Caliendo read LeBron James' "Coming Home" essay as Freeman, and he was back at it on ESPN's Mike & Mike on Thursday. This time, he used his fantastic Freeman impression to recreate Allen Iverson's famous "practice" rant. Caliendo didn't stop there. He treated the world to another impression while on th ...

Peyton Manning tosses a touchdown, trash talks D.J. Swearinger

Aug 23 2014 9:58pm CDT | Source: SBNation

If you made a list of the top trash talkers in the NFL, Peyton Manning would probably be near the bottom. The methodical quarterback tends to go about his business quietly, but that wasn't the case on Saturday. After tossing a touchdown against Houston, Manning found Texans safety D.J. Swearinger and did his best Richard Sherman impression. Via @PatDStat There is a little history here. The Broncos and Texans held a join practice last week and things got chippy ...

No Matter What Cousins, Griffin Do, There'll Be No QB Controversy in Washington

Aug 11 2014 1:38pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It may very well be true that Kirk Cousins has performed better than Robert Griffin III thus far in training camp and the preseason. ESPN.com's Mike Reiss stated over the weekend that Cousins, not Griffin, was the best quarterback on the field for the Washington Redskins as they practiced against the New England Patriots last week, and Reiss had Patriots sources to support that claim: One of my biggest takeaways from Patriots-Redskins joint practices was surprise that Ro ...

Misconceptions about the Broncos roster

Aug 1 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: milehighreport

This being the season of speculation, I wanted to address some of the ideas floating around that from my perspective do not make a lot of sense when it comes to the Broncos roster. Misconception #1: Duke Ihenacho is on the bubble I feel partly responsible for this one because I was more vocal about his negative plays down the stretch.  Ideas plant seeds, and one of the ones that has come to harvest is that somehow Duke Ihenacho is not wort ...

Kyle Korver: An Offense Unto Himself

Jul 29 2014 7:55am CDT | Source: Grantland

As the second round of the 2003 draft puttered along, the Nets watched as teams ahead of them plucked every player in which New Jersey had interest. The team, fresh off an Atlantic Division win and an appearance in the NBA Finals, was so low on cash, it considered selling the pick to finance its summer league team. With none of their preferred choices on the board, the Nets brass selected Creighton forward Kyle Korver with the 51st pick — and immediately sold his draft rights to the Sixer ...

How a Kobe Bryant and Jeremy Lin Backcourt Can Work for LA Lakers

Jul 25 2014 1:16pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

With nagging nerve issues plaguing both Steve Nash's productivity and activity, it's been a long time since the Los Angeles Lakers had a backcourt as skilled as the newly formed Kobe Bryant-Jeremy Lin tandem. That's not to suggest this partnership is guaranteed the slightest bit of success. Not by a long shot. Both players have performed at their best with the ball in their hands, and there is obviously only one to go around. However, this twosome has ...
