Billups for Iverson.
Iverson expires.
Pistons sign Boozer.

Sounds like a well rounded move.

Pistons will lose 4-1 in the first round. They are not a good team. They won't magically transform into the 2001 Pistons (apologies if I got the year wrong). It's interesting how Dumars is considered a genius and Kerr is an idiot.. which he is.. but lets face it, they (pistons) made some weird moves. They're cooked, but I'll be rooting for them anyway.


By the way, from a business perspective, it's kind of ridiculous to say that 6 straight ecf appearances are not worth anything. Winning championships is great and should always be the goal, but only 1 team can win.. the idea that the others are all failures is just sports hyperbole.

Plus taking a low risk, high reward opportunity: Iverson had a chance at providing go to scoring they needed.

Here's to Iverson's return to Philli!

Damnit, I can't stand Iverson myself, but I bought tickets to a damn Knicks-Pistons game just because my younger brother is an AI fan and has never been to an NBA game. Now I'll actually have to watch the damn Knicks play the Pistons, and I won't even have the joy of showing my brother his favorite player.

Makes me like Iverson even less. Wouldnt want the man coming of the bench in Cleveland if he damn well paid us for the priviledge.

They weren't even willing to give him a huge role in that lineup. If you were a former MVP and a future HOFer, would you play for a team like that?

When Iverson makes comments like, "I'll do whatever the team wants" then I think he should do it. Go look up Iverson's press conference introducing AI to the Pistons.

In that press con, I bet he had absolutely no idea that he would be playing second fiddle to Stuckey. I bet he had absolutely no idea that Will Bynum would start over him. I bet he didn't know Rip would be b1tching over deferring to him. I bet he didn't know Rip, Tay and Stuckey would freeze him out on the court (seriously, they were treating him like a f*ckin spot up shooter).

It's one thing to defer to your teammates, and AI did that excellently (maybe too much) the whole season. It's another thing to be outright disrespected despite your efforts to blend in.

what a terrible post. AI defered to no one, took more bad shots than the rest of the team (maybe minus sheed) combined and allowed his defensive assignment to get to the basket at will. He was shut down because he brings nothing to this team except a terrible attitude and a hurt butt.
