Hoops Star Iverson Gets Into Tiff at Taj

From the Chicago Tribune:

Philadelphia 76ers point guard Allen Iverson isn't a big guy, but around Atlantic City he's known as a whale, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. That's what casinos call a gambler who bets major money on each hand played at the tables.

On a late-night visit to the Trump Taj Mahal after the Sixers bested the Charlotte Bobcats last Friday, sources told the newspaper that Iverson, after winning a hand at a three-card-stud poker table, was overpaid $10,000 in chips by a dealer. When the dealer quickly realized the mistake and requested the chips back, Iverson, the paper claims, refused to hand 'em over and a head-turning argument between him and casino staff began.
