Allen Iverson is putting his iconic swagger to use with a deal to endorse high-end basketball socks. The Answer joins Dwyane Wade, Andre Drummond and others to be the face of the all-important garment from Stance Socks.
As for why they chose Iverson, who retired from the NBA in 2013, to represent them in a multi-year endorsement deal, Stance points to the legendary athlete's unmatched statistical record, and adds, "As impactful as his game was on the court... the 6-0 dynamo made an even bigger cultural dent off of it. The native of Virginia brought cornrows, tats and headbands to the NBA. He brought style, attitude and hip hop to the league."
After a tough few years it seems that Iverson's post-NBA career is finally starting to take off. The icon was the subject of a critically-acclaimed Showtime documentary called Iverson and was recently offered a cool million to play on a tour in China, though he rejected that deal with claims that the promoters misled fans about how much time he would actually spend on the court.
Still, at leat the calls are coming in for The Answer.
