Iverson wants NBA comeback but not one that starts in D-League
As has been the case the past couple of years, Allen Iverson is interested in a comeback. Just not one that begins in the D-League.

I thank Donnie and Dallas for the consideration and while I think the D-League is a great opportunity, it is not the route for me.— Allen Iverson (@alleniverson) January 29, 2013
I realize my actions contributed to my early departure from the NBA, should God provide me another opportunity I will give it my all— Allen Iverson (@alleniverson) January 29, 2013

Iverson is 37 years old and hasn't played in the NBA for three years. His last game was Feb. 20, 2010, for the 76ers. That was his first comeback of sorts, and he lasted only three months with the Sixers.
He then took his game to Turkey to play for Besiktas and appeared in just three games before returning to the United States. He was then rumored for a D-League spot on the Lakers' affiliate, a spot in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic and other various places.
It's pretty obvious Iverson wants a path back to the NBA. The Mavericks offered him one. Evidently, Iverson is more interested in the straight shot back, something I don't really see him getting.
