    This is possibly the worst idea ever. I would rather have Triano suited up than AI. Iverson is no longer "The Answer", but instead "The Wrong Answer".

    When was the last time AI played anything close to a full season?
    Even if he's on his best behavior (did I just write that about a grown man? best behavior?),
    those "old man" injuries make it a bad investment.

    I don't disagree, but I got to say it stung a little bit when you mentioned the "old man" injuries.

    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.

    Do you realize tone doesn't carry very well over text?

    Considering we've had Kemba comparisons to Zeke, Iverson, Chris Paul and Steve Nash, among others, another person seriously comparing him to Iverson as well wouldn't have been very surprising. =P

    Sorry to be mister opposite, but I don't see why there is no concern in signing Ajinca for about a million, however there is so much hate towards a guy who can still get maybe 15 pts per game, a guy who has playoff experience for about the same amount of cash. Get over his ego, the fella can play basketball. Same thing with JR Smith in Denver.
    1. Dallas paid us cash considerations to take his contract off their hands, so we didn't really have to pay him anything.

    2. As much as I think Ajinca is a dud, at least there's the potential he could turn into something valuable; Iverson, not so much.

    3. Ajinca was okay with sitting on the bench and/or staying on the inactive list. Would Iverson be okay with being signed to the minimum and staying on the inactive list? Would he take it in stride and not attempt yet another retirement?

    Iverson might be able to score 15 points per game, but it'll take him 25 shots to get there. And he'll start pouting about wanting to be a starter. That's the problem.
    your pal,
