REPORT: Allen Iverson Was Seen Gambling Morning of BIG3 Game That He Missed
Allen Iverson, who serves as the captain and a player-coach on Three’s Company, was seen gambling at a casino in Chicago on Saturday, where a BIG3 event was being held. So at the time, no one thought much of it.
The following day, Iverson didn’t show up to a game that was being held in Dallas. Nobody involved with the BIG3 had a clue where the former NBA MVP was, and no one could get in contact with him.
Finally, witnesses came forward and spilled the beans on his whereabouts on Sunday.
“Iverson was gambling in a Chicago area casino hours before he blew off a BIG3 basketball league game in Dallas over the weekend … TMZ Sports has learned.
Iverson was first spotted at the Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, IL on Saturday night into early Sunday morning. One witness says AI was still in the building at 3 AM.
Hours later, Iverson surfaced at the Sugar Factory restaurant (around 10 PM on Sunday — wearing the same clothes he’d been wearing at the casino in the days before. Fans who recognized him asked for photos, but he refused.
The restaurant is 2 miles from the casino.
Iverson had been frequenting the casino last week — and had been gambling with a huge stack of chips at the roulette table.
Earlier in the month, he was spotted at another casino in Philadelphia.”
