iverson.jpgAs if Allen Iverson did not have enough problems, Stephen A. Smith of the Philadelphia Inquirer adds this one to the mix.

According to several NBA sources with knowledge of the situation, Iverson has been troubled by excessive drinking.

Smith puts that note in the middle of the laundry list of personal and professional issues Iverson is facing right now. That includes a sick daughter, a wife who filed for divorce and the possible end of his legendary basketball career.

As always with unsourced statements, take that note with as much salt as you feel appropriate.
