Allen Iverson has announced his retirement from the National Basketball Association.


AI in just one of the three games he suited up for the Grizzlies, before deciding that playing a few minutes off the bench was not right for him at this stage of his career.

Quick, lob a grenade and grab the rifle...oh...hang on...

Normally I don’t get care what reviewers say because I’m used to a lot of unprofessional and biased journalism on gaming sites and I try not to make a big deal out of it because, 1.everyone has their own opinion and 2.as long as I am enjoying the game that’s all that matters.
