How are we getting him? Trade? Sign?. How the hell would Baron and Iverson be able to play together? If this happens, it means we're probably getting rid of Baron

Don't know what this move is.

I feel mixed feeling over this vecause of his past and the way he dominates the ball.. but ultimately he is better than say, a fred jones or ricky davis

He's not going to stunt Eric Gordon's growth, is he?

Just talked to a source close to the team who stressed that the team is no more in on AI than they are on many of the other available swingmen. The Clippers have not ruled it out, but the source said the negotiations were not serious at this point in time.

This means very little if anything but back when he was with the Sixers he always said Staples Center was his favorite building to play in.

Well I guess he would be a decent signing if he came relatively cheap for 1 year and came off the bench. There are a lot of AI fans out there, so who knows maybe he will help put a few people in the seats, and sell a few jerseys. Could work out.

very bad for team chemistry if we sign him.
I don't think Dumbleavy wants to have a conflict with both AI and
Baron unless he is a masochist and maybe he is.

Radio is reporting Iverson is either in LA or on his way to LA to meet with the Clippers today

Would prefer Wafer but this hopefully won't ruin the team.

I think it wouldn't work out good for you guys. You guys have Gordon who is already kinda small for his spot. Good but small. So to have AI to back him up doesn't make much sense since having a longer more defensive minded guy would really change the looks of things more. AI won't play PG so he won't be taking PT from Davis.

What's weird to me is they said they would only sign him if he came off the bench. He wouldn't do it in Detroit. I don't know how he will like it anywhere. He might say one thing to a camera, especially while he doesn't have a job, but that doesn't mean it's the truth.

He doesn't play defense and he needs the ball all the time to be effective. If he would take a role of about 15-20 minutes a game as a spark off the bench with a 2nd unit he'd be fine. The problem is he isn't going to do that so he's more of a cancer than anything. I'm not sure if I'd go to any Clippers games next year if he was on the team. I don't like seeing that kind of play. I guess it depends on where the seats are and how cheap I get the tickets

Dont fall asleep on AI. The guy is still a Beast.

I love how everyone thinks the guy has fallen off the map. Last season was a wierd season for AI. The yearbefore they got beat by the lakers but won 50 games. Guy put up like 27 pts a game and was STILL a beast..

Anywhere near the midlevel is a deal!!

Dont sleep on AI. He is that Super STAR power that you clippers guys have never had. If he does come, expect him to be ON TOP of his game. In shape and ready to go. He will be a star again, book it.
