Do you remember Allen Iverson? Yeah, neither do we. We vaguely remember some ex-basketball star who thought he was still the best player in the NBA when he had clearly declined and refused to come off the bench. He's a star dammit and he should be treated like one!
Apparently he even thinks cops should still treat him like a superstar. Atheletes generally get special treatment anyway but Iverson apparently thinks basic laws shouldn't apply to him. Unfortunately for him, he ran into the one cop who thought atheletes should have to adhere to the same laws as us mortal folks.
Iverson and a buddy were driving his Lamborghini when they were pulled over for changing lanes without signaling. Things got worse when the officer informed Iverson his car was being towed because the tags had expired in 2009.
Now you would think Iverson would've said "I am so sorry officer, it slipped my mind! I will take care of it good sir!"
Nope. Iverson launched a profantiy-laced tirade, insulting the officer and breaking out the classic "Do you know who I am?!"
Classic Iverson. Wonder if he practiced that line. Now if you're the cop you have a few options. Do you stroke Iverson's ego? Do you get combative in return? Do you degrade him a bit just for fun?
They both do have a habit of being completely ridiculous. Next!
After the car was towed Iverson apparently told the officer to take the vehicle because he had 10 more
and "I make more money than you will in 10 years!"
Yeah... guess all that money playing in Turkey or China or whatever D-league Iverson has been playing in is paying him handsomely.
We know who you are Allen. Youre an idiot. And a nobody, now.
NEW YORK -- Lamar Jackson leapt over a loaded field of Heisman Trophy contenders early in the season and by the time he slowed down nobody could catch him.
The sensational sophomore quarterback became the first Louisville player to win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night, beating out preseason favorite Deshaun Watson of Clemson despite some late-season struggles.
Baker Mayfield finished third and Oklahoma teammate and fellow finalist Dede Westbrook was fourth. Michigan's Jabrill Peppers was fifth.

BOSTON -- The Bruins’ season has gone in extreme swings both up and down thus far through the first couple of months, and that was the case as they lost their third game in a row to the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.
The Bruins couldn’t only scratch for one goal despite outshooting the Maple Leafs by a 32-20 margin, and fell by a disappointing 4-1 score to the young and talented Toronto club at TD Garden.
The Bruins never enjoyed a lead in the game against the Leafs, and were flirting with danger after failing to score in the first period despite out-shooting Toronto by an 11-2 margin in the game’s opening 20 minutes. Instead it was a David Pastrnak neutral zone turnover in the second period that was picked off by William Nylander, and ended with Auston Matthews firing a rocket over Tuukka Rask for his 12th goal of the season.
Toronto extended the lead with five minutes to go in the period when Zach Hyman tipped a wobbly Jake Gardiner point shot past Rask, and made it three games in a row that the Bruins have dug themselves a considerable hole. Brad Marchand got one goal back at the end of the second period on a nice hustle play as he sealed off Frederik Anderson’s clearing attempt and then stuffed the puck past the Leafs goalie on a second chance bid.
That’s the way the score remained until the third period when the Bruins couldn’t convert on a couple of offensive chances -- included a bang-bang shorthanded bid for Austin Czarnik in front of the net -- and then James van Riemsdyk scored in front as a Toronto power play expired. That was the backbreaker for a Black and Gold bunch that continues to scrap for goals, and has now scored two goals or less in 20 of their 20 games this season.
Connor Brown added an empty netter in the final two minutes of the game to truly put it out of reach for the Bruins.
