Soccer league wants Iverson to trade points for goals

    He’s still be in a gym, he’d still be in a uniform, but we’d be paying a lot more attention to Allen Iverson’s feet.

    CBS Sports reports the Rochester Lancers of the Major Indoor Soccer League want to offer the former Sixers player $20,000 per game to appear in the last two games of the team’s season.
    Iverson would also get a $5,000 per goal bonus.

    The team would even host Iverson’s family while he plays, but the NBA star is said to still be shopping basketball deals before he leaves the court behind for a new sport.
