Allen Iverson's once prolific pro basketball career really tailed off in recent years. Now it looks like his marriage to Tawanna Iverson is following suit.

Tawanna is, once again, calling off her marriage to the ex-NBA star, filing divorce papers in Fulton County, Ga., for the second time in 15 months.

Tawanna Iverson calls their 10-year marriage "irretrievably broken."

Allen Iverson: Thug Lyfe

According to court documents, the two have five minor children together. Tawanna is seeking sole legal and physical custody of those children.

Tawanna is demanding child support and alimony payments as well as her fair share of property and money accumulated during the marriage.

Gonna be rough. Or not. However, just last year, Tawanna filed for divorce from Allen Iverson, who's now balling in Turkey. She dropped the case then.

You never know ...

Golf. It's generally regarded as a sport for social elites and uptight stiffs.

The PGA Tour is full of class guys, but charismatic, magnetic figures are hard to come by. Even pre-scandal Tiger Woods was kind of a slick, corporate drone.

This context makes the video below, starring a quartet of PGA stars - Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, Ben Crane and Bubba Watson - all the more amazing.

Their faux boy band, "Golf Boys," offers an introspective look into a pro's mindset. Seriously, these are professional golfers. Four of America's best, no less:

In the Farmers Insurance-sponsored creation, the next generation of young golfers prove you can be goofy (and scruffy) in a buttoned-up world.

New England Patriots fans already hate David Tyree, the former Giants wide receiver whose miraculous catch in Super Bowl XLII enabled New York to pull off a major upset.

Now, Pats' fans will likely have some company.

In an interview with National Organization for Marriage, Tyree took a controversial stance on gay marriage.

If the institution is ever opened up to homosexuals, the wideout said: "This will be the beginning of our country sliding toward... it's a strong word, but anarchy...

"How can marriage be marriage for thousands of years and now all the sudden because a minority, an influential minority, has a push or agenda... and totally reshapes something that was not founded in our country."

Note: Tyree is African-American. Interracial marriage was illegal in the United States until 1967. Seems worth mentioning.

Fresh off winning an NBA title, Dallas Mavericks guard DeShawn Stevenson was arrested Tuesday night for public intoxication in Irving, Texas.

According to reports, law enforcement officials received a call about "some drunk guy" wandering around an apartment comlpex last night.

Lo and behold, they found Stevenson ... who said he was lost.

Stevenson does not live in the apartment complex, and proceeded to fail a field sobriety test. He was arrested for public intoxication.

Officers "felt he was a danger to himself and others" and booked him, adding another classic to THG's gallery of celebrity mug shots.

Stevenson posted $475 bail this morning and was released.

DeShawn is best known for shooting a red-hot 13-23 from downtown in the Finals, relentlessly trash talking LeBron James (including on a t-shirt asking how his Dirk tastes) and having Abe Lincoln tattooed on his neck.

LeBron James was in for a long postseason before he stepped to the microphone for a postgame press conference, following his team's NBA Finals elimination at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks Sunday night.

The supposedly best player in basketball had been reduced to a passive spectator during the series, averaging nine points fewer per game than he did during the regular season.

Asked about the celebratory reaction of his critics to such poor play, James gave an answer that sounded like he was looking down on all basketball fans.

But James said today that he was misunderstood.

"I was saying at the end of the day this season is over and - with all hatred - everyone else has to move on with their lives, good or bad. I do, too.

"It wasn't saying I'm superior or better than anyone else, any man or woman on this planet, I'm not," said the underachieving star. "I would never every look at myself bigger than anyone who watched our game. It may have come off wrong but that wasn't my intent."

We'll buy that. But we're still psyched the arrogant Heat lost to the Mavs. How about you?

Shaquille O'Neal retired from the NBA this month. Considering the superstar's charisma and love of attention, anyone who has followed his career can't help but wonder: What will he do next?

Now, however, we find ourselves asking: What the heck did he do before? Specifically, on the night of February 11, 2008?

TMZ has broken what could be a mammoth story, detailing the arrest of seven gang members who are accused of kidnapping a man named Robert Ross on that date.

Law enforcement officials report that Ladell Rowles - a member of the Main Street Mafia Crip and a friend of O'Neal's - led the group, drawing guns on Ross outside a convenience store, ordering him to drive them to Rowles' house and then pistol whipping him until he turned over a sex tape of Shaquille and a mistress, allegedly filmed when O'Neal was married.

NFL legend Joe Montana was injured in an ATV accident last weekend, taking a spill from his all-terrain vehicle near his Calistoga, Calif., ranch.

The four-time Super Bowl winner required a few stitches above his eye, but Montana told San Francisco's KGO-TV that he wasn't seriously hurt.

Montana was supposed to meet with the Santa Clara City Council to discuss plans to develop commercial real estate around a proposed new stadium for 49ers.

The meeting has not been rescheduled as of yet. "Mr. Montana is upset because he really wanted to be able to come, because he is committed to this project," Joe's attorney told the San Jose Mercury News.

"It's from his vision and on his reputation that a proposal's being made."

With former owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr., Joe is part of a group looking to develop hotels, restaurants and bars on two parcels owned by the city.

No word if the group will also apply for permits to dump Alex Smith into the poured concrete foundation of one of the aforementioned structures.

If there's any place on the planet without an Internet connection, LeBron James may wanna head there. ASAP.

The Heat forward, whose team lost 105-95 in Game Six of the NBA Finals last night, is being widely criticized around the league for his passive play and arrogant attitude. And now he's being trashed talked by a guy with a backward "P" tattooed on his face.

Following his team's victory, DeShawn Stevenson donned a t-shirt in the Dallas locker room that said in all. In homage to Shaquille O'Neal 2006's taunting of Kobe Bryant, it reads: Hey LeBron! How's My Dirk Taste?

It's a reasonable question. After all, Dirk Nowitzki was named MVP of the Finals. LeBron? In the final five minutes, with the game within five points in either direction, he didn't score a single point all series.

When LeBron James joined the Miami Heat last year - essentially admitting that he couldn't handle the burden of leading the Cleveland Cavs to a NBA title - he became the most polarizing figure in professional sports.

Therefore, when the favored Heat lost Game Six of the Finals last night to the Dallas Mavericks, critics around the country celebrated.

That's Karma for screwing over Cleveland, they cried, pointing to James' subpar stats in the series (18 fourth quarter points... total) as proof that he can't handle the pressure.

Yes, the Heat did... hold an unseemly, premature pep rally that crowned themselves champion before a single game was played.

At the podium after the game, James was asked if he cared about such reaction. His reply likely didn't make him any new fans:

“All the people that were rooting me on to fail, at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life they had before,” LeBron said. “They have the same personal problems they had today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want with me and my family and be happy with that.”

In other words: hate on, haters. But your life still sucks compared to mine and, get a life, this is just sports.

Were you happy to see the Heat lose?

LeBron James has struggled in the NBA Finals, scoring 11 points total over five fourth quarters and looking disinterested in action on the court during Game Four.

Might such poor play be blamed on the action off the court by girlfriend Savanna Brinson?

For the second time in two years, following his second baffling, passive playoff performance, an Internet rumor claims that a fellow basketball player has slept with someone close to the Heat superstar.

Last season, sources said teammate Delonte West got it on with LeBron's mom, Gloria.

Now, at least one website is reporting that Washington Wizards forward Rashard Lewis recently slept with Brinson, LeBron's long-term girlfriend, during a trip to Miami.
