Allen Iverson is at it again. The Answer, who had a history of acting out in Atlantic City casinos while with the Sixers, has been banned from both MGM and Greektown casinos in Detroit, the Detroit News reported on its Pistons blog.
A regular casino visitor since he arrived in town, the blog said Iverson has been "banned mostly for his boorish behavior. He is a bad loser, and he loses a lot, often throwing his chips or cards at the dealer. He has been warned about improper behavior at the tables repeatedly. He is often loud and disruptive, according to witnesses, rude to dealers, other players and the wait staff." The NBA is looking into an incident at Greektown that involved one of Iverson's bodyguards, the News said. It is unclear what Iverson's role was, says a sports story in today's Daily News.
In February 2004, Iverson urinated into a trashcan at Bally's on the casino floor, shocking nearby patrons. In December 2005, we reported that he had gotten into a head-turning argument with a dealer at the Trump Taj Mahal casino after the dealer overpaid him $10,000 on a bet he made while playing three-card stud poker. Iverson initially refused to give the chips back but did so later and received a gaming voucher in that amount from the Taj. Since he first left town for Denver, Iverson and his pals have returned to the Taj Mahal, his AC spot of choice, during several trips back East.
