Net Worth & Income
Iverson made a fortune as a basketball player, where he earned around $154.8 million during his career.
A huge chunk of this came from the Philadelphia 76ers, where he made around $98 million.
In the 1999-2000 season, he signed his first deal for six years for $70.9 million.
Later on, the deal was extended for 4 more years at $73.5 million. And finally received $20.8 million in the 2008-09 season, making it the highest deal.
Furthermore, he earned $4,00,000 during his brief stint with Memphis Grizzlies, which was previously supposed to be $3 million before mutually terminating it.
However, returning to Sixers in the middle of the 2009-10 session earned him a little over a million.
The deal was believed to pay him $8,00,000 a year and $32 million in a trust fund that he would gain once he turns 30.
However, half of it is held by his now divorced wife, Tawanna.
This doesn’t end here. Much of his earnings also constituted brand endorsements. Reebok being on the top of the list.
The 10 years deal which was signed between the two, soon after Iverson entered the NBA, was valued at $50 million.
Reebok also went on to give Iverson a deal for a lifetime after Philadelphia 76ers legend won 2000-01 season MVP.
Along with his endorsements with Reebok, his other endorsements include IO Moonwalkers, Packer Shoes, Stance, and T-Mobile.
Despite making a fortune for himself throughout his career, where he amassed more than $200 million from salary and endorsements, his net worth has dropped to a horrifying level because of his careless spending habits.
He has often seen overspending on extravagant vacations and showering his family with expensive gifts.
Adding to this, his personal issues of going through a divorce and general challenges in his personal life led to a serious impact on his finances.
