In the sort of story that only happens to the sort of people who have the money to burn—i.e. pro ballers—Allen Iverson’s Lamborghini has been in police lockup since April, and he probably won’t miss it.
Iverson’s 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago has been sitting in an impound lot in Atlanta for three months now, racking up dust and tickets. For a car like a Lamborghini, the Georgia tags cost $14,000 per year. Iverson’s Murcielago hasn’t had a tag in four years, so if he wants it back he’ll have to pony up $56,000 in back taxes—as well as the $300 per month for the lot it sits in.
Not that he’s likely to miss it, however. When the car was first impounded, Iverson told police, “take my car, I have 10 others.” Iverson, a resident of an Atlanta suburb, last played for the Philadelphia 76ers back in 2010. Reports have indicated that despite a lucrative Reebok contract and being ranked an 11-time NBA All Star, the man is flat broke. He’s interested in getting his NBA career back on track, however, and we’d like to think that he could start with getting his car back.
