Default AI To Lakers?

wouldn't be interesting to see a.i. add some much needed bench help to the lakers his agent said he'll be willing to come off the bench in the right situation. he'll be able to relieve kobe and save him for late season and the playoffs and with good character guys around him i think it could work...if i'm laker front office i really look into it...just my personal opinion...

AI + triangle + Phil's mind games + Kobe's intensity and practice work ethic = fail

stranger things have happened

but I wouldn't want him

hel have to clearly state that he is willing to paly any role ,including 6th/7th man
and at his situation hel probably have to beg also if he decides that a championship is important to him

I don't know if it would just fail immediately, sure he could crumble and quit eventually but I think he will be too embarrassed to not try hard because of how accomplished the guys around him are, hel want to show that he belongs(you know with Phil/Kobe/Gasol/or even Fisher). where as in the Grizzlies it was the opposite because he was the most accomplished person in the whole Grizzlies org. , he probably felt like they had to prove themselves to him .

Even AI is smart enough to know he wont start in LA unless it's the Clippers and even then he'd struggle to...

Of course it would work. Phil integrated Rodman into a winning environment, and he is far worse than Iverson.
Iverson is a little misunderstood - he would play off the bench if he was winning. He only left the Grizz because they were losing, and he felt he was being under-utilized in helping them win.
Its more so whether they think they need him enough. But Phil could make it work.

If you think about it more, it could easily = success.
We are talking about an elite player here, who has had a rough 12 months or so.

AI already said that he'll come off the bench if the person starting in front of him is better than himself. He would replace Sasha.
