Iverson banned from Detroit casinos?

Read on a sports website that A.I. has been banned from Greektown and MGM in Detroit for generally boorish behavior. Any witnesses?

He's banned from casinos all over the US. Tons of crazy stories. The guy is pretty insane and loves to gamble and get drunk/belligerent/crazy. I've played cards with several NBA guys and AI is the most insane.

Iverson, though, has been banned mostly for his boorish behavior. He is a bad loser, and he loses a lot, often throwing his chips or cards at the dealer. He has been warned about improper behavior at the tables repeatedly. He is often loud and disruptive, according to witnesses, rude to dealers, other players and the wait staff.

Re: Iverson banned from Detroit casinos?

We're talking about Greektown, man. I mean, how silly is that? We're talking about Greektown. I know I'm supposed to be there. I know I'm supposed to lead by example . . . I know it's important . . . I honestly do. But we're talking about Greektown, man. What are we talking about? Greektown?"

Charles Oakley, man. That guy is hysterical. Cheats like crazy. Has 16. Waves his hand. Next card is a 5. "Dealer... I signaled a hit on that 16." Repeat like 10 times an hour. He is a regular in Vegas. All the dealers know his shtick and he never gets away with it. Also he loves to cry racism every 15 minutes. Like the dealer asks him whether he wants to split or double his 8's and he'll act all offended and be like "would you ask a white guy that?" kind of routine. But it is fun to watch unless you are actually at his table and then it just slows the game immeasurably (which can be good for theoretical ratings if you are trying to slow play $1-2k bets per hand).


I've never played with AI but have been in a high limit room at a table next to his. I didn't follow all the action but he flipped out on the dealer several times, cursing, etc. His handlers and pit bosses constantly trying to calm him down. I don't even think he was losing one time -- I recall he was winning big. But he was very drunk.


Played with Jermaine O'Neal (very nice) and Vin Baker (less nice). I play high stakes a lot and 95% of the sports guys I've played are what you'd expect. They show up, play huge stakes, lose a ton and could care less. And they are friendly as hell.

Re: Iverson banned from Detroit casinos?

When he was at CP here in lovely MN he got served numerous rounds of drinks by my wife. No tip. As he was leaving he got his car from the valet. No tip.

Scumbag IMO.
