Allen Iverson in a Knicks uniform - a player who at 30 had the best season of his entire career. 33ppg (44.7%fg! + 81.4%ft) 3.2rpg 7.4apg 1.94 spg
When the city of brotherly love shows none then Gotham City will await with open arms.
I would trade Marbury ($17.2) for Iverson ($18.2) - both players have 3 years left on their deals. Marbury has in opt out for 2008.
There is no questioning Allen Iverson's desire and will to lead Philly to a playoff birth (2 games from getting the 8th seed). On team of inexperienced rookies (korver / iquodala) and a thin front court (Webber / Dalembert out for nearly entire season) - Philly won 15 more games then the Knicks and a near playoff birth!
Iverson has nothing left to prove except his legacy as does Marbury. Difference? Iverson has experienced the Finals, an 7 time NBA all-star, All-Star MVP, an eastern conference championship; For all of Marbury's talent he has yet to get of the 1st round of the playoffs.
Every team Marbury has left has experienced more success:
1) Timberwolves - 2nd round battle with the 2003 lakers
2) Nets - 2 NBA finals appearances
3) Suns - Second round of the playoffs
