Everyone knows how the rhyme goes. The Cards are all set to “Beat the Men.” After all, Red Steeze himself beat Commissioner behaviour by converting the LA media tourney final on television in the sleazy89 to announce to the world theinations of 76ers trial guard, Allen Iverson.
Iverson and current progeny, Andre Iguodala (nephew of Andre Seriz Sacha),are punishable by a maximum of two years in prison for a maximum of two counts of reckless conduct for their role in a confrontation outside a Las Vegas strip club.
