iverson pissed after cleveland loss
 
you knew it was gonna be rough for iverson coming off the bench.
http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=290331005

"I can play 18 minutes with my eyes closed and a 100-pound truck on my back," he said. "I'm wondering what the rush was to get me back. It's a bad time for me mentally. I'm just trying to get through it without starting a whole bunch of nonsense. I'm looking at the big picture, if I vent my frustrations, then it's on.
"Being who I am, fingers are going to be pointed at me. People are going to make a big deal out of it. I'm just trying to laugh as much as I can and stop from crying."

Who's going to want him though. He's going to want good money, good number of years and all of the ball.

well if you know what happened. AI didnt play all of the 3rd quarter. And when they put him in the 4th quarter, he led the team to the lead than Michael Curry took him out and put in Rodney Stuckey than leading to the loss. Of course he would be pissed.

Does Iverson even weigh 100 pounds?

Being benched for Rip Hamilton is one thing.

Being benched for Rodney Stuckey? No way AI's ego can take that blow.

Well hes going to have to be realistic. If he doesnt find a way to embrace the sixth man role then hes going to start on a non contender...Like Charlotte.

Iverson would be a good fit in San Antonio or maybe in Houston with Yao.

hell find a job. regardlee of what people say, he is still a top competetitor who doesnt like to lose. Hes coming off a huge paycheck so i honestly dnt think he will be picky in terms of the amount of money hes gonna want. i woulddnt be surprised if he accepted a contract below the MLE as long as he plays for a top team.

Why does Curry see Stuckey as a pg? He passes less than Iverson does.

agree.

i kinda feel for him though, it's not like he asked to be traded to detroit.
but he needs to realize his role on that team, and that's not 35+ minutes a game.
