Report: Iverson forced to play for bling

A JUDGE IN GEORGIA has garnished Allen Iverson's earnings to pay a hefty sum owed to a jeweler, according to a report.

TMZ, citing court papers it had obtained, reported Aydin & Company Jewelers in Atlanta had sued Iverson in 2010 over an unpaid $375,000 bill. The report said Iverson did not respond to the lawsuit, so a default judgment was issued in favor of the jeweler.

Now, the debt has climbed to $859,898.46 because it includes attorneys' fees, court costs and interest.

The report said the money would be taken out of Iverson's bank account.

No word on whether the debt has been settled yet.

 

Miami's big wheel

The wheels for the Heat's win over the visiting Bulls on Sunday were literally set in motion long before the game started.

Heat star LeBron James, anticipating traffic congestion because of the Miami Marathon, decided to pedal to AmericanAirlines Arena.

James, accompanied by two friends, made the 40-minute trip while riding his black Cannondale bike emblazoned with the words "King James" in gold.

"You guys drove here?" LeBron asked the media after scoring 35 points in the 97-93 win. "You guys are crazy."

 

Hell of a hotel

For most single, young men, spending time in Las Vegas at a hotel hosting a porn convention would be heaven.

Not for Tim Tebow.

Two weeks ago, the Broncos quarterback went to Sin City for a 1-day photo shoot and checked in at the Hard Rock Hotel in Paradise (just outside of Vegas).

Unfortunately (for him) he got there the same day the Adult Entertainment Expo was opening. The Expo coincided with the Adult Video News Awards, also being held in Vegas.

So what did the squeaky-clean Tebow do?

A source told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he spent "most of the time" in his suite, but did attend the Cirque du Soleil show with his brother, Robby.
