Strange Days: When Globalization Leaves Something Nasty in your Mouth

Allen Iverson playing professional ball in Turkey feels about as right as incest. But the deal is sealed. Rest assured a lot of Turkish ankles are going to get busted.

But just take a good long look at the photo of Iverson below. Think about everything he means, everything he's contributed to the development of basketball culture, everything he's done and said over the last 14 years. Can you really imagine him playing in an all Turkish league living in downtown Istanbul? Really? Without being swarmed by drama and conflict as he navigates the most bizarre waters of his life? Nope. He'll be state side by summer.
