Allen Iverson - CBS This Morning

Allen Iverson is sick and tired of defending himself.

During a visit to “CBS This Morning” to promote his forthcoming Showtime documentary, “Iverson,” the former NBA star addressed many misconceptions about himself and addressed reports about his alleged financial struggles.

Allen Iverson shared, “I’m not the person everybody makes me out to be.” He continued, “I’m a father; I’m a friend. I think I’ve got the biggest heart in the world. A lot of times, that’s not a good thing. It’s a gift and a curse.”

As far as his finances are concerned, A.I. says reports of “struggling in any part of his life” are just “myths.”

I don’t really care too much about what people who don’t care about me say about me, but a lot of times, you know, I get tired of defending myself and I’ll be 40 years old next month and I’m so sick of defending myself.

Allen believes his documentary will shed a light on the truth about his life. “The documentary does a lot because my fans care about me, and they hear these rumors too,” he shared.
