Iverson is too old. If it were 5 years ago, yes. But now at a very old and beat up 35, No.
alright, we are just about ready to enter the season. we have seen what our preseason roster has done, specifically the point guards. here is the question:
knowing that jax will not be happy on a bad team and that gerald is firmly in his peak years, would you go with dj and hope he doesn't fail, landing us again in the lottery. or would you offer AI a one year un-guaranteed deal to split pg time with dj and back up jax at the sg position?
in the past i was firmly against AI. i think i am now good with him on the team. i really think we are going to struggle this year. our point guard play is shaky at best. and i am not afraid of not giving hendo any playing time/developing time. i don't think he is good enough and if we need a defensive back court sub, he is the one.
Simple NO, he wont contribute more than the trouble he causes and it will just give the NBA another chance to laugh at us again

Let the CHOsen one get to work!
Bring him in here! Im fine with it....still
Hasn't AI come up every year for 3 years now If it hasn't happened yet I don't think it ever will.
Get at me on twitter @dcarnys
For all the reasons listed in prior discussions on why he shouldn't be given an opportunity, I haven't seen AI actually make any public or private statements indicating his attitude/ego were a large part of the problem in why he didn't work out in Detroit, Denver, Memphis or Philly (most recently). Until his is able to see that (and acknowledge it, I don't want him disrupting our locker room or LB's limited sanity.
ok then. i think it is case closed on this one. then, who should we pick up for scoring. fipper? what will he cost? we are in desperate need of both starting and bench scoring.
The problem is that i agree with every ones negative opinions for the guy.... BUT
If Coach and MJ could hold his shit together for a few weeks then a starting line up of AI Jack and GW would put our team in the conversation as possible contenders.... a huge step up from the "will probably make the playoffs" conversation that I think we are in now.
And for a mere 2million wouldn't it be worth the risk? His jersey sales and increased TV coverage would probably pay that much back to the team...
In this Division, Conference and League we are just average right now.
