Life continues to be unfair. In one fatal swoop my hopes of being able to share sunflower seeds with Ann Iverson while seated courtside have been destroyed.

Citing an unnamed source close to the 38-year-old, SLAM Magazine reports that 11-time All-Star Allen Iverson is “prepared to officially announce his retirement from the NBA in the coming days.” Iverson played in 71 career postseason games, appeared in the NBA Finals once, and won MVP in 2001.

“He loves his fans more than anyone,” says the source. “He loves how they ask for his return constantly, on the streets and on the internet. But now that they know it’s not happening, he can just focus on his future endeavors.”

“If the road ends here, then it does and I am not bitter about it,” Iverson reflected back in March at a Philadelphia 76ers game. “At some point it comes to an end regardless, however it comes, whether it is retirement or injury, at some point it comes to an end. I am happy and content with everything that has gone on in my life and I am just looking for the next phase, and if I get a chance to play again I would love the opportunity, but if not I will continue to just be happy.”

Join me in wishing Bubba Chuck farewell by watching Mama Ann tell it like it is. If you are a seasoned member of Crunkland you know the special place this clip holds in my heart. I watch it at least four times a month.

Long before The Secret Squirrel Lady and Momma Dee reigned supreme on reality television, Ann Iverson was the opening act, the headliner and the after-party. If she is on AOL Instant Messenger her away message is without a doubt “Don’t come at me with no bullshit, use caution.” Word to DMX.

My friend, instead of getting yourself all worked up the next time you are confronted with comments you don’t agree with, fly above all the drama by responding with one very simple question: Did Tawanna tell you that?

Former Sixer Allen Iverson received a standing ovation from the Wells Fargo Center crowd while delivering the game ball before Wednesday night’s Game 6 against the Celtics. His appearance came in conjunction with the relaunch of his highly coveted original Reebok Question sneaker, available in stores this Friday.

“I really don’t have words that can really describe it, but it was the best,” Iverson told ESPN’s Lisa Salters during an in-game interview. “I love these fans and, obviously, they show me a lot of love. I was basically trying to hurry up and get off the court. My legs started wobbling and I was getting ready to tear up. Once my eyes got teary and my lips started shaking, I knew it was time to go.”

Image30 How Dreadful: Allen Iversons Estranged Wife Wants Names of All Women Hes Slept WithBack in June 2011 Allen Iverson’s estranged wife, Tawanna, insisted that her reason for filing divorce from the former NBA superstar had nothing to do with infidelity on his part.

“Cheating in the marriage has never been an issue,” she said. “My decision to divorce has nothing to do with another woman.”

In a Tyler Perry stage play-esque turn of events, Tawanna is now demanding A.I. give up the deets on all women that he slept with while the two were married. The Itchy And Scratchy show.

She has filed documents requesting her husband “give the name and telephone number of every person other than your spouse whom you have had sexual relations and/or intimate physical contact from the date of the marriage to the date of trial.”

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Tawanna now also wants to see receipts.
