Allen Iverson has 3,000 new fans in another continent

Sounds great: new star in town, Jersey-promo night, butts in seats, right?

What happens when the new star in town is off the team in 15 games or less? You get Allen Iverson jerseys in Tanzania.

So what will happen to all of those unused Iverson jerseys?

The Grizzlies plan to ship the jerseys to impoverished children in Tanzania -- the birthplace of rookie center Hasheem Thabeet.

An NBA program -- Basketball Without Borders -- will facilitate the shipment to the African country. Basketball Without Borders is the NBA's global basketball development program that helps education, health and wellness.

Meanwhile, children in Memphis have Marc Gasol jerseys. Would it be wrong to ask which kids are luckier?

I still think Iverson has something in the tank. The real test will be how he reacts to reduced minutes and not being the focal point of the offense.

Too good and great work, keep it up.

We have to be happy for all those kids in Memphis that they have his jersey.
