Safe to say the AI-Detroit experiment didn't work out...I really feel bad for AI.

The pistons will win a playoff series now without the distractions. Don't worry Detroit fans, you know he wont be back next season. Let his cancer spread in new york or OKC.

ESPN Breaking News - Allen Iverson will sit out the rest of the season to rest his injured pride.

MIDDAY CORRECTION: Allen Iverson will sit out the rest of the season to rest his injured back.


As long as they get the story right.

:roll:

Now you have to wonder if the Celts will drop a few games to just to force Orlando into matching up with the Pistons in the first round.

Mutual agreement I'm sure.

Pistons don't want the drama, and AI doesn't want to ride the bench.

Re: Breaking News: Iverson out for season
 
I chalk it up to this:

They dont want him there, and he doesnt want to be there, and he probably does have a bad back, that with the situation, he COULD probably play, but with them not wanting him , and him not liking the situation, both parties decided he can sit his ass out, and rest his back.



Bad situation for both parties, and i agree, he does have an attitude problem.

Now - he'll be sure to be healthy for next year!

Oh, and nobody can blame him if the Pistons proceed to flush themselves down the john.:eek:

Absolutely not breaking news.

injured back or brused ego?...I hope Iverson is really hurt because if he's not then I'm losing respect for him almost everybody now....I bet he doesn't even show up on the sideline to root for his team either.

Well this gives more of a chance to Will The Thrill Bynum now that he knows he has to play to replace Iverson.

Pistons can still take out the Magic, They can't take out the Celtics or the Cavs.

Re: Breaking News: Iverson out for season
 
LOL@ Some of you thinking Detroit is going to make this HISTORIC run now that AI is out. As if hes the ENTIRE reason they are having a poor season.


Detroit is going out the first round folks. You can put money on that one.


That team is going to be in rebuilding mode during the offseason. Yes they play well, but they arent that great of a team.
