Dwyane Wade’s Epic Allen Iverson Casino Story From His Rookie Year

 

When Dwyane Wade was still playing in high school and college, Philadelphia 76ers star, Allen Iverson was one of his idols, and a player he’d look up to.

The Georgetown University product even is one of the reasons why Wade chose #3 as his jersey number.

During an appearance on Bleacher Report’s ‘Lefkoe Show’, Wade now revealed an epic story about meeting Iverson for the first time, when he still was a rookie.

It was at a casino in Puerto Rico, and Iverson even threw a $1,000 chip to Wade, for him to gamble too.

 

“So I go with Eddie Jones, and he knew Allen Iverson was one of my favorite players, so he wanted to introduce me. And he introduced me to Iverson right there when they were gambling, so Iverson’s gambling and I’m standing there the whole time. And he threw me a $1,000 chip and was like, ‘Yo, go play this, young fella.’ So I played $500, and I put the other $500 in my pocket, because I didn’t have money like that at the time.”
