You’ve got to love Allen Iverson’s drive.

He tried to put together a charity All-Star game in Las Vegas but it fell apart. So his response? Set up a four-city tour, reports Chris Palmer of ESPN. Stops would include Atlanta and Las Vegas.

Already LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade are putting together a four-city tour. And by saying they are putting it together what we really mean is CAA (the agency that represents) is putting it together, and has lined up a sponsor in Google+. It takes that level of organization to really make one of these things work.

We’ll see if Iverson could pull it together. It’s not like the players really have anything else to do.
