A.I. would make $20,000 a game
The Major Indoor Soccer League's Rochester Lancers have offered Iverson a contract to play in their league. If he signs, Iverson would make $20,000 a game with a $5,000 bonus for every goal he scores. He would also receive bonuses for each time his team wins and get a share of the profits from merchandise. On average, 12 goals per game are scored in the league.

A season consists of 24 games, meaning that in perfect world Iverson could pull in over $500,000 for his services.
"Allen Iverson is one of the premier athletes of our time," says Lancers vice president Rich Randall. "With his athleticism and competitive hunger, I think he can be a great fit with our team and fans as we make an important playoff push, while also driving interest to an exciting, growing sport."
There are only two games left in the regular season in the MISL, so we're assuming that this contract offer is for next season, which starts in November, right around the time the NBA season begins.
Iverson has made headlines in recent weeks due to his bank accounts being commandeered and wages garnished after failing to pay a $860,000 jewelry bill to an Atlanta jeweler.
