See A.I.'s 'Money Bagz' Tattoo?
Watching a video clip of Allen Iverson, I noticed on the back of one hand he has a tattoo that says "Money Bagz." Is he bragging? Having a good laugh about the obvious? No way to tell. But another of his newer tattoos, sure doesn't strike any tone of bemusement. It says FAME across his back, with a message reading downward "F@#!? All My Enemies." You can check them and others out at alleniversonlive.com.
By the way, last night on NBC10's Sports Final, St. Joe's coach Phil Martelli said the now-infamous late-for-Fan-Appreciation-Night incident sure shows how much Iverson, not GM Billy King and certainly not coach Moe Cheeks, is in charge of the franchise. Who was to blame for that situation? "The players. There's no doubt about it," said Martelli. While A.I. and Chris Webber weren't necessarily showing disrespect for the fans, they clearly have a "total disrepect" for anybody in the organization, he said. "Somebody in the upper echelons has said that this team will dance to the tune set by Allen Iverson."
