Is Allen Iverson television's next reality star?

Those who saw Allen Iverson's appearance last week on the debut of
ESPN 2's Quite Frankly were rewarded with something increasing rare
on television these days: the unexpected. There was Iverson, equal
parts raconteur and provocateur, offering unfiltered opinions on
everything from the atmosphere of last year's Sixers' team
("Everybody uptight, everybody seemed like they were mad all the
time") to media coverage of a long-ago domestic dispute ("Man, they
even said I threw my wife out naked. I don't want nobody to see my
wife naked, period. So what makes you think I'm going to send her
out of the house for everybody to see her naked. ... Why would I
expect somebody to look at me as a man if I did that to my wife?")
to a self-critique ("I'm not perfect. I'm not even 50 percent

The show even included an Oprah moment: Tears welled up in Iverson's
eyes as he watched a tape of former coach Larry Brown speaking of
his love for Iverson and his former player's potential to make an
impact on kids. While it's far too early to make any critical
judgment of Stephen A. Smith as a talk-show host, one thing is
clear: Allen Iverson is a television star.

Two years ago Mark Shapiro, ESPN's executive vice president of
programming and production, told Sports Illustrated that Mike Tyson
was at the top of his wish list for an athlete reality show subject.
That was then, and this is now: They don't make reality shows about
missionaries. "It's unfortunate that our viewers would find a
reality series on an explosive figure like Mike Tyson uncompelling,"
Shapiro says. "[But] a life of caring for underprivileged people, as
[Tyson] says he's going to do, just isn't as riveting as the
ticketing-time-bomb life."

Shapiro has a new star in mind. "We'd love to do a reality series on
Allen Iverson," he said prior to Iverson's appearance on Smith's
show. "[Allen's] life is mile-a-minute. If we could have a no-holds-
barred, all-access, 24-7 reality series in the life of athlete X,
Allen Iverson would be at the top of the list."

Would Iverson be interested? His agent, Leon Rose, told this
week that Iverson would at the very least entertain a offer from

"It's flattering," Rose said. "Allen is a private person but I'm
sure if ESPN made a proposal, he would look at it."
