Default Allen Iverson "I have no intention of signing with Detroit"

"I have no intention of signing with Detroit" said guard Allen Iverson after Tuesdays loss to Detroit in which he only played 18 minutes. "As you seen in Philly and Denver, i'm willing to put my life on the line to win basketball games. I live and die for this game and to be reduced to role of spectator after carrying my teams night in and night out is disrespectful. I do not want to be a part of the Pistons organization and at the end of the season I will explore my other options. I want to be a part of a team that wants me. I will play my hardest for whatever amount of time coach decides to play me, because at this point that's all I can do."
April fools! (erase this)

And the nuggets are as good as last year. Not contenders and still just a 50 - win team. With a weaker conference then last season as well.

This may have been an April fools joke thread, but there's no way he's going to want to re-sign with Detroit and they don't want him either.

Iverson said he is not happy with the Pistons, who acquired him in a trade with the Denver Nuggets in early November. "No, not at all," he said. "I'd be lying if I said I was. But I'm trying to do everything I can to be happy other than basketball. This is just one phase of my life. This is not my whole life. I have other parts of my life, other people in my life that I am surrounded by who make me happy."

Even if the article was just a joke I'm sure it's still true to a certain extent. Besides the fact that I don't think Joe D will resign him anyhow. AI is going to have to come to terms with the fact that in order for him to play on a team that is going to win a championship he is going to have to take a reduced role and the team isn't going to be built around him. Otherwise he's just going to end up somewhere that isn't a legit contender.
