Default Iverson a Piston?

Would Iverson be a good fit for the Pistons? I can and I can't see him rocking a Piston jersey or the lineup. It just doesn't feel right.

PG- Chauncey Billups
SG- A.I.
SF- Tayshunn Prince
PF- Rasheed Wallace
C- Nzar Mohammond

Why get rid of the only Piston with a unique game?

AI won't be a piston because his paycheck is too big.

Iversen doesnt fit very well the Pistons style.
He would ruin the teams colective spirit.

No way should AI be a Piston. He's a ballhog, doesnt play exceptional defense, undersized, payed alot, helll no.

iverson likes these guys and they respect iverson but no way would they be in business together.

I could be wrong because flip saunders utilizes his stars well. but you never know

Iverson would not fit. If you were to put him on that team and actually have them be successful serious changes would have to be made.

Wasn't the Iverson a Piston thing a rumor when Larry Brown was first hired as a coach? It didn't happen then and it won't now. He really doesn't fit into Detroit and he will be with Philadelphia. If they trade anyone it would be Webber but does anybody really want him.

I dont think iverson would have been a good piston. For the sure fact that he is a player who needs to have the ball in his hands to be effective. Also because the pistons are about Defense and Iverson doesnt play D that well. So with those 2 factors and the fact the pistons play team ball. And not to diss on iverson but he is not that type of a player.

Basically what your saying is detroit is a team with No egos and they all share the ball very well. thats why Iverson wont blend in wwith that team.

Iverson actually defends very well and it isnt just the steals...hes quick with his feet and we all know that. he gaurds guys like nash very well.

BUT hes also a great pickpocket.

Iverson is unecesary for the Pistons, too much of a chemistry risk.

It would destroy team chemistry and the Pistons would lose that defensive swagger they still have with Billups, Rip, Tayshaun and Rasheed.
