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.
