Pegging Perfect Jobs for Former NBA Legends to Take on After Basketball

Allen Iverson recently received an offer from the Texas Legends, the D-League affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks—an offer which he politely turned down.

Iverson was obviously pleased by the offer from the D-League team, but for a former NBA player, a 37-year-old former NBA player at that, accepting an offer to join the D-League seems to be nothing more than a reason for the team to drive up attendance and get some national attention.

Antoine Walker toiled for two seasons with the Idaho Stampede before calling it a career, and his main motivation to get back into the league was strictly monetary.

On the other hand, Iverson seems like he genuinely wants to get back into the league to play.

In his quest to get back into the NBA, Iverson may have realized that interest is low for a 37-year-old point guard who hasn't played in the league since 2010.

He's yet to give up his dream of returning, but his agent has contacted the Philadelphia 76ers that he's interested in returning to the team to work as a consultant of some kind.

Whether or not that's the right job for him doesn't really concern me; I'm more concerned about the job that he, and other recent retirees for that matter, should be doing.
