NBA legend Allen Iverson believes his wife should be locked up for ransacking his house while he was out of the country -- this according to new legal docs.
A.I. recently filed a motion for contempt in Georgia against his estranged wife Tawanna Iverson, claiming he had a basketball gig in Asia earlier this month ... and when he returned home, his house was totally gutted.
According to the docs, Iverson's wife infiltrated his home while he was gone -- pillaging furniture, art, memorabilia ... and a large sum of cash.
Iverson says he's asked Tawanna several times to return the stuff -- but so far, she's refused. Tawannna and A.I. have been warring since she filed for divorce last year. Last month she requested a restraining order, claiming her ex was harassing and threatening her.
Now, A.I. wants a judge to hold Tawanna in contempt for harassing him ... and throw her in jail ... at least until she returns the stolen goods. He also wants an order barring her from entering the home.
The judge has yet to rule.
