Iverson Nixes Vegas Tourney After NBA Lockout Ends
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Even organizers have canceled a professional basketball tournament in Las Vegas hosted by former NBA star Allen Iverson after the league resolved its lockout.
Organizers said Friday they would refund tickets to the two-day event that would have featured Kevin Durant, Al Harrington and others.
The tournament was scheduled for Jan. 6-7 at the Thomas and Mack Center.
Iverson has been out of the NBA since 2010 and spent part of last year playing in Turkey. He was the NBA MVP in 2001, when he led the Philadelphia 76ers to the NBA finals.
