I would hate coaching him. hes a good player and has moves but thats not how you win championships.


AI is a great talent...he's hardworking and has matured over the years...he's not a system player?...he bought into larry browns system and they went to the finals...I think earlier in his career he may have not been a system player but i do believe he wants to win...and if that meant him changing his game to win i believe he would do it...guys got a heart of a lion and more determination than anyone...if he somehow came to the lakers...i believe AI would excel becasue he would finally have a teammate he can truly rely on...he's never really had that before in hughes, stack, webb, van horn...etc...he scores becasue he must score...his whole career his team has been subpar and would be near the bottom of the league if he didnt score...plus a few years back when the usa was doin crap in the olympics or some world tournament the coach said AI was the only one showing he truly wanted to win...he will make many teams much better because i do believe he would be willing to change his game if finally he was on a real contender...

Yes he played in Brown's system but he missed a lot of practices and kept going outside of brown's game plan which led to brown being the one who went crazy and left.
Him and Webber both complemented each other until webber started complaining but Iverson definitely has help in Korver, dalembert and Andre Iugodola (idk how to spell it).

Iverson has a will to win.....as well as Kobe does and we already have that type of player.

so honestly I don't see Iverson fitting well into this equation

Wow. Are you saying that the Lakers, or any team for that matter, only needs one player with the will to win? That is ridiculous.
