This will be interesting to see how the Pistons do. They'll be in a hard spot if while he's out they have a pretty good record, then when he comes back and plays if they're record falls yet again before the playoffs. Becuase then you ask yourself, "Do we use Iverson in the playoffs even though seemingly the team plays worse when he's on the floor, or just go with the flow and just play through it?" I'm sure we'll have a lot of The Canswer threads. I'm sure a lot of Pistons fans are greatful he's out a least two weeks.

Good thing I dropped him on my pool for Conley

Fine by me as long as he's back by April 8th. I bought tickets for the Knicks-Pistons game to take my younger brother, he's a huge Iverson fan and has never been to an NBA game before, would hate to have to tell him Iverson isnt even playing.

The old A.I. would've been back. He's in no rush because he knows he'll be coming off the bench.

Exactly. I wish it wasn't this way, but my gut tells me that's what it is.

pretty sorry if thats the case. we're talking bout substituting! Anyways, I dont think Ill miss him much given hwo well they are playing without him. I would like to see afflalo get some more mins, but it seems like they want to give them to herrmann. That was an insane lineup against boston, with Herrmann and prince as the wings.

Pistons staff says he's fine, Iversons doctor says he will be out two weeks. Interesting....

Sounds like hes got a reverse case of "Jon Kitna Syndrome". The Lions said his back was injured but he said it was fine.

That's a good take on it.

Besides A.I/Piston fans, I was probably the last to call the A.I/Billups a failure for Detroit.
Well, maybe not failure, but now I know for sure that Nuggets for sure got better deal.

This whole injury thing kinda proves it.
They were on what, 7-game losing streak?
Then he gets injured and they start winning.
Even Celtics.
This will give them better chance to secure 6 spot while he's at.
Hopefuly they can still play well with him back...

He won't even play in the playoffs. He knows he out of detroit after this season anyways.

If he sits out the rest of the season he must be considered one of the most selfish players in the history of the game.

Re: Iverson out 2 more weeks
 
If he sits out the rest of the season he is just hurting himself. For a guy that is going to be entering free agency the last thing he should want is to be thought of as a cancer on a team. I think in the end he will do what is right and come back when he feels healthy enough and come off the bench to finish the season out. He might be selfish and have an ego but when it comes down to it he still needs to find another place in the NBA and try to get the most money he can while doing that.

Hopefully we'll get the chance to see if AI is the person who is making this team lose. Or is it Michael Curry?

embersyc 03-19-2009 05:07 PM

Re: Iverson out 2 more weeks
 
Iverson supposedly still not ready to come back...

When is the deadline when waived players can no longer sign with a new team for the rest of the season? I think that is what the team is waiting for before they get rid of his worthless ass for good.

dd24 03-19-2009 05:22 PM

Re: Iverson out 2 more weeks
 
There's no way they are going to just waive him. It doesn't make sense. His contract is dropping off anyhow. I have to think he is seriously injured. First of all AI has never been known to fake an injury for a prolonged part of a season and things got pretty bad with his last two teams too. Secondly, even Rip is hurt right now so AI would have the starting spot and the playing time. I think his back injury is pretty legit. Anybody that has had a hurt back knows it doesn't cure itself in a week.
