Yeah, man. There really was no point to it. Everyone knew the situation with AI.

ABC just basically decided to put him on front street for no reason other than to get a laugh in.

Like him or not, he was a very talented individual player and perhaps the most popular player of his time. Going back to 2001-2002, AI was the one everyone talked about and wanted to be like.

I think I have seen the 76ers live in Dallas 3 times because of AI...and they only came in town like once a year I think...

he is/was entertaining as hell to watch...but deep down I always viewed him as a ball hog that shoots a million times a game and kills teams...(yes I know he has assists, I have been in this arguement 100 times in the main forum, I don't want to do it here)

he was awesome, but I would never want him on my team...

So I am guessing it can only be a part-time thing. You can't make living off such a paltry salary.
