You've been hearing a lot about Allen Iverson these days and it's not because of his crossover move, his braids or his tattoos. Will the Answer be going to jail? Will he play for the Sixers again? Kidzworld has the 411 on why The Answer is in trouble.

Why Was Allen Iverson Arrested?
Allen Iverson has been arrested because police say he threw his wife out of their home in Philadelphia. The next day, Allen is said to have burst into an apartment to look for his wife and threatened two men. Allen Iverson was arrested on July 16, 2002 and is now facing several charges.

Will Allen Iverson Go to Jail?
It's very unlikely that Allen Iverson will go to jail because he has really good lawyers and no one in the apartment was seriously hurt. Allen will probably end up doing some form of community service work if the courts find him guilty.

Will Allen Iverson Still Play for the Sixers?
Larry Brown, the coach of the Sixers, says he wants Allen Iverson to keep playing in Philadelphia. Allen is one of the best basketball players in the NBA, he sells tickets and everyone, including Bow Wow, loves his jerseys and shoes. The Sixers would be crazy to trade him, so you can expect to see Allen Iverson doing his magical crossover move in Philadelphia again this season.

Will My Parents Be Less Likely to Buy Me an Allen Iverson Jersey or Sneakers?
All parents are different. Some 'rents might not care about all the hype around Allen Iverson while others will think it makes Allen a bad role model for kids. As long as you don't start breaking down other people's doors or getting tattoos, your parents should be cool about letting you wear Allen's shoes. But no matter what your 'rents think, Iverson sneakers and jerseys will still be big sellers because The Answer is a great player and a big celebrity.

What do you think about Allen Iverson being arrested? Is he still your favorite player? Does it change your opinion of him? Should the Sixers trade him?
