Did Allen Iverson leave his Hall of Fame trophy in a hotel room?

This is not verified. But it’s also not out of character.

A listener of “The Toucher and Rich Show” on Boston’s 98.5 The Sports Hub sent the show a picture allegedly of Allen Iverson’s Hall of Fame trophy, which he left at a hotel in Springfield.

Iverson was genuinely moved by the honor of being inducted into the HOF, but he also showed up late to his own press conference and missed an event for children he was scheduled to attend this same weekend.

Meaning he was Iverson being Iverson. The guy who at times did not pack for team road trips, when the plane would land he would just head to a store and buy new clothes (and throw the old ones out). Leaving the trophy seems plausible.
