Question: Why does Allen Iverson have a rep as a bad-boy?
Answer: Allen grew up in a rough neighborhood in Hampton, Virginia where there were gangs and drug dealers. When he was 17, he went to prison for five months for being involved in a brawl outside a bowling alley. This is where his bad rep started and some of that carried over to his first couple of seasons in the NBA. In his rookie year, his teammates thought he was a ball hog and Allen would often be late for practice and ignore his coach. In 2000, he recorded a rap CD that some people thought was rude and had bad lyrics. These events and the way Allen dresses have given The Answer lots of bad press. But that's changing now because his team's winning and most people realize that Allen is not only one of the best and most exciting players in the NBA, he's also a pretty nice guy.

Question: What does Allen eat?
Answer: Allen eats pretty much anything but his favorite food is lasagna.

Question: Will Allen be my boyfriend?
Answer: No. He is married to his longtime girlfriend, Tawanna, and they have two children together.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.
