There’s a quote that goes something like, “behind every great man, there is a great woman.” Well, I would like to introduce a new quote that I came up with, and it goes something like this: “Behind every washed up, bankrupt, ‘practice-loathing,’ ex-NBA-superstar, there is a woman named Tawanna (who tries to take all his loot!).”

World, Tawanna Iverson. Tawanna Iverson, meet the world. Now that you both have been acquainted, here’s a little more insight on the lovely lady. Tawanna has spent time in and out of the news (and wallet of ex-husband, Allen Iverson) recently for a number of different nonsensical reasons — however, her most recent rant just might take the cake (and by cake, I mean $40,000 of her ex’s non-existent money).

Uh, I don’t really even know what to say. I’m trying to think of some witty, light-hearted way to put it, but truthfully I’m drawing a blank. F*ck it, Tawanna Iverson claims Allen done gon’ ahead and kidnapped the kids! Wait…what!?

Tawanna claims that Allen asked for permission to take their 5 kids (ages between 3-16) on a quick respite to Charlotte, North Carolina, back in late May. The thing is, Iverson never returned the children. When Tawanna realized, “hey, I never got my kids back!,” she requested that Iverson meet up with her (bearing the kids) at a neutral site (a local Target). Are you f*cking kidding me?! WTF do you think this is Tawanna, craigslist? These are children we’re dealing with, not a used iPhone 4. You really couldn’t brainstorm a more efficient and protected place to pick up your effing offspring?? Target!?!? Target….

According to Tawanna, the kids have been held up in a Sheraton Hotel (in Georgia). Frankly, I can’t see that as a less fit home for these young whippersnappers when compared to the home of a woman who elected Target as the place (she felt was fitting) to pick up her “kidnapped” children.

Tawanna is “very concerned” because Allen is an alcoholic who drinks like a fish in front of her kids. Tawanna wants jail time for her ex-beau. I think Tawanna probably should’ve refrained from lending her children to him if this is how she really feels. It’s pretty evident that both these parents could use a little practice in the field. Practice? What are we talking about, Tawanna and Allen?
