    His contract wouldn't hurt us. What would he actually disrupt? He knows exactly what role he'd be getting, and he NEVER had any problems with his teammates.
    understood, but Nash game was never really based on athletics, while A.I's game was always based off speed, and at 36, IDK if he still has it, even if he gets in tip top shape(which he has never done).The first thing to go, in athletes is speed, and i think he's done.When you talk about he'll know his role, are you joking, he wants a lot of shots, and that's about it.No thanks.

    ^^ I remember the Houston Rockets were desperate to get a PG in 2005 and they brought in 38 year old Rod Strickland a month or two into the season. Rod hadn't played in about a year after being cut the prior season, he was old and slow, couldn't stop anyone. They cut him after a few games.

    I think they had Strickland signed to a couple of 10 day contracts before they cut him. When Grunwald says AI is too risky, it leads me to believe he wants more than a minimum deal.

    this situation is different. AI can't have an ego here bc he's getting vet minimum. He'd be stupid to have an attitude about coming off the bench esp since no one wants him.

    Then again, we've seen athletes make stupid decisions before. (cough cough, sprewell)

    This article still makes me so upset.

    We are chasing Nash and going to offer him a crazy amount of money when we can sign Allen Iverson, who is arguably better than Nash, for a fraction of the cost with no guaranteed contract?

    How could we not sign Iverson for 1 year?

    This is a mind boggling decision. The upside is just too high!

    Yo! Ai was done three years ago. To my mind, one of the.most overrated players in NBA history. Terrible end to a incredibly inefficient career. He should take it to.China if he is broke.

    I was thinking about this if Dolan forced a trade that sent Shumpert to the Suns. Iverson should 100% be called, unless they want decent PGs instead of legends who are gonna show up in the regular and post-season.

    This can't work with Amare and his rotating door defense and lack of rebounding instincts. If we had Tyson and another defensive/rebounding PF, I wouldn't be opposed to letting AI get some minutes chucking as a 6th man.

    AI worked in Philly because his entire team was great defenders and rebounders.

    Seriously this is ridiculous. This is him from 2010, and he's still got moves NOW. Stop wasting time with these guys who we'd have to trade, overpay, or whatever for.

    AI's last meaningful year in the NBA he had the following stats

    .417 FG% (Awful)
    .333 3pt% (not good enough JR Smith is better)
    4 Assists to 2.28 TO's

    No thank you.

    So you don't think Iverson would have been better in the Playoffs than Smith? Did you watch him?

    AI could not stand in front of JR Smith if he Swish hoped on one Leg. I love AI would not mind him as a 12 man but that is a role he would not go for.

    We have tried this bit before with . Penny , Francis, Moochie Norris etc...

    Smith rarely drives.

    Those teams weren't good to begin with.
