Allen Iverson brags about playing Russian Roulette in a distressing chat with Adrien Broner (Video)

Adrien Broner is a former featherweight boxer who took the WBA’s welterweight belt after a split-decision on Saturday evening. He also fancies himself a bit of a filmmaker, as evidenced by this clip from his long and definitely not safe for work series entitled ‘About Billions.’

The reason this is being featured on a basketball website is because the film includes a cameo by former NBA All-Star Allen Iverson, who talks up playing Russian Roulette in a braggy-yet-sullen aside. Not only is the language not safe for work, but the despondent, distressing talk is not for the faint of heart. You’ve been warned.

Iverson is not without troubles, sadly. He is reported to be dealing with financial woes, an alcohol problem, and a recent custody flare-up with his wife made headlines before being resolved. Iverson isn’t depicted as being worse for wear or lacking funds in this clip, but it’s certainly not a cheery back and forth, and we hope that the dialogue is one percent posturing, with no substance behind it.

(Thanks to Grantland, via Tom Ley at Deadspin, for directing us to the clip.)
