the strange thing about Iverson...... everyone is always apprehensive about playing on the same team with the guy but when they get there they love the guy (personally). he has a reputation for being the one guy on the team that everyone is close with. personality wise he's a perfect teammate. not once has he ever bashed any of his teammates even after they singlehandedly blow the game. He praises them when he drops 50+ when they don't deserve it. and he hugs his teammates so much it gets uncomfortable LOL.

i doubt many superstars or guys that want to be superstars dream about playing with him tho because of his (former?) style. but he's a dream teammate for scrappy players and Korver-like players. hopefully how he's been playing with Melo will change that perception of him.

Aaron McKie had the best quote. "When i got to Philadelphia, i absolutely DID NOT want to play with A.I. I obviously knew the stereotype that surrounded him. But when you become his teammate that all changes. He's the friendliest guy off the court and his attitude on the court makes you want to go to war with him like he really is your brother."

Are you guys not seeing the Kobe Im seeing this year??? Dude is passing the ball excessively...tryin his best to get the team going?

and to the ballhog claims..heres something you all dont know...If Kobe continues at this pace, avg what hes avg for his career in assts every year until the age of 35...he would rank top 30 in total assists ever. He is currently avg 5.7 apg..which is excellent for a SG. Y'all want him to avg 7 assists I know but he aint a PG..so this notion of ballhog is becoming overblown.

Players like Playing With Marbury, Now for Francis..Curry hates him lol. Francis is a turnover machine.

Arenas For Sure.

Personally, I'd hate playing with any ball dominant player.

To anyone who says Arenas, the only player that's come out and said anything was Kwame Brown, but I think that was more of everyone else hating to play with Kwame.

Caron loves Gil. Jamison thinks of Gil as a younger brother. Eddie Jordan has spoken out against a lot of lockerroom stuff for the Wizards, but never mentioned Arenas being a part of it.

For real, where are people getting this from?
