Another U.S. Export: Allen Iverson to China?

Only in America.

So, once of France's heroes turned goofball, Thierry Henry, comes to the U.S. for the latter part of his soccer career. Then it's probably fair if after Stephon Marbury, the U.S. sends Allen Iverson to China. AI will probably test every temptation the People's Republic's government will have to inflict human rights abuses on a visitor.

In the People's Republic of China, the party is the thing.

In Allen Iverson's world, a party can be the thing.

Here's to hoping that AI learned enough at Georgetown, which has an all-world school of foreign service, to distinguish between the party and a party. After which, he should be sure to respect the party and take care not to have a party every night. I can see where this party thing could get kind of tricky.

The Chinese have done enough for America, haven't they, by purchasing billions if not trillions of our public debt. And now, here they come again, possibly taking away one of the hoops world's problem children from the U.S. It could well be that the People's Republic of China is about to change it's name to "1-800-Got-Junk?", but time will tell.

Let the Seniors Tour for Hoops begin.

In China.
