According to the Star Tribune, AI wasn’t so lucky at the three card poker table. Forget the fact he was at the Shakopee’s Canterbury Card Club at 11:30 Tuesday night when they had a game against the Timberwolves Wednesday. Iverson and his friends just wanted to have a little fun.
“Iverson, Rasheed Wallace and about six other members of the entourage” were at “a three-card poker table in the casino games room,”
“Sheed didn’t wager, explaining to onlookers, I don’t gamble, but he certainly had fun sipping [beverages] and jabbing at his friends and other players who weren’t doing so hot. AI, on the other hand, had what we call ‘rubber band banks’ in his pockets — must have been around $50,000 (at least in one pocket) and he was getting beat up pretty hard at three-card poker.”
Why does Rasheed Wallace have to be a hater? You should root for your friends to win. It is part of casino etiquette 101. And damn Allen Iverson sure travels with a lot of pocket money…about $49,980 more than I go out with.
Don’t worry, the Pistons beat Minnesota. No harm, no foul.
