Re: O.J. Mayo, Rudy Gay, Snack Randolph and Iverson???
Makes no sense to sign AI. They have other guys full of potential whose growth could be slowed with such a big player added. Conley, Gay, and Rose will all be affected by this, mostly Conley. And Conley was finally coming around at the end of the year last season. I mean aren't they on the youth movement? Making your team adjust to AI for a year and readjust without him the next year is going to hurt the growth of the team.
So all I can think is that they simply want to increase ticket sales. Which I can't blame in this economy. Fact remains, they likely are not getting one of the playoff spots. Who knows, maybe they will overachieve. But I doubt it works out on the court. But
