    Default Should The Raps take a chance on Iverson?

    Iverson apparently wants another shot at the NBA. Should the Raps take a chance on him to mentor Bayless?

    Just a thought. What do you guys think?

    Awesome interview with Iverson today in SLAM magazine.

    I love the guy but I don't want him on the Raps. He's one of those guys that doesn't realize he's not the same player he used to be.

    No. If you're goal is to win a championship, you need a 5 year plan. Not a one year plan.
    You only *consider* if you're VERY close to winning it. Even then I wouldn't.

    Thank you very much for putting it that way.

    I swear, this topic comes up a lot more often than it should.

    Iverson isn't one of these guys who's a true team player. He wouldn't come in here looking to be a mentor. He's always gonna want to start and gonna want to dominate the rock. Pass.

    Point taken but do you not think he learned his lesson after no one took him last year? I know that most people would take that as a sign to change their ways!

    When has Iverson been "most people"?

    Everyone changes their ways one way or the other or sometime or the other! Do you not agree?

    Well, no. Most of the time they simply regress to who they were. And what's the upside to taking Iverson? That he plays well enough to take time and shots away from young players who need it to develop? They already have Barbosa, who is a better player, at this point, and far more professional. And he's an unnecessary luxury I would like to see traded.

    Everyone changes? How do you figure?

    Do you have evidence that Iverson has changed?

    If you change your statement to "some people eventually change," I'd agree, but I still wouldn't know what that has to do with Iverson.

    What Liston said. Iverson wanting another shot at the NBA and Iverson wanting to mentor someone are two different things. So with the mentoring bit out of the picture, the question is can Iverson help our 3- to 5-year plan. Considering he was unable to help a good team in Detroit, and was also unable to help a bad team in Philadelphia, do we really need to see what he might or might not bring to our team?

    It makes no sense to do it. He's only going to take minutes away from people who are part of the plan.
