Iverson is unhappy, and it is his fault. He chose Memphis and another 3 guard rotation over us. Look where it got him....
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Allen Iverson(notes) made his debut with the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday, and it went about as expected.
He spent much of the night on the sideline. And he wasn’t happy about it.
Nor, it seems, was his rear.
“I had a problem with my butt from sitting on the bench so long,” Iverson said. “That’s the only thing I had a problem with.”
He could only get 18 minutes in a game that went to overtime?Allen Iverson was as upset after his first game with the Grizzlies. After missing the first three games while recovering from a partial right hamstring tear, Iverson played only briefly as a reserve, scoring 11 points in less than 18 minutes.
He said he had no problems with his hamstring, but had a big problem with the playing time he got from coach Lionel Hollins.
"Go look at my resume and that will show you that I'm not a sixth man," Iverson said. "I don't think it has anything to do with me being selfish. It's just who I am. I don't want to change what gave me all the success that I've had since I've been in this league
He has fallen off. I am saddened to see this. And the fact he went to Memphis, a team with too many scorers and no defenders, over us a team with too many defenders and no scorers angers me. What a waste.
AI's announcing his retirement today.
His mouthpiece? Stephen A Smith
