    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.

    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.

    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.

    Iverson as a mentor? Now I've heard it all. I haven't read the SLAM interview yet, but judging from his attitude in Denver, Detroit, Memphis and the latter part of his Philly career, he still thinks he's an All-NBAer. Even though he might say he's willing to take on a smaller role or whatever, a leopard can't change its spots. At this point in their careers, this would be like bringing Steve Francis on board.

    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!

    Should I start another thread....I hear Stephon Marbury looking for another shot at the nba? Stephon and AI in the backcourt together and Bayless off the bench getting mentored the entire game. Good coaching challenge for Dwayne Casey. I could write a standup routine here.
