    Like everyone else has said, low risk high reward.

    Im kind of surprised so many are for this signing, I know he could add talent off the bench, but I thought KO posters were for adding players with a 'winning' attitude. Don't think Iverson fits this bill.

    What's changed in my attitude is that we have Lin, he'll start. On previous occasions where he's been brought up the depth chart competition was Nate/Douglas, so Iverson would have started and with his shoot-first mentality, not been a good fit.

    We could use his kind of spark off the bench, plus last time he had issues he left on his own, so I kinda think it's low risk.

    If he could bring like nine points, five assists to this team off the bench, it'd work just fine.

    In my healthy mind, I would call this ridiculous.

    But we are talking Carmelo Knicks, then it all makes a lot of sense.

    Bring on AI, bring back Marbury, bring back Isiah, Glen Rice, we should make a move for Gilbert Arenas.

    LMAO!!!!!

    Personally, I think AI is done and will be a terrible fit for this team especially if JR resigns with us. Too many ball-stoppers between STAT, Melo, AI and JR. Plus, at 36 years old, his lateral and vertical athleticism has got to be horrendous.

    Judge for yourselves guys, here's a a little highlight of him from the lockout.

    But he' probably not willing to.
    That was his problem in Detroit and Memphis, he didn't want to come off the bench. Maybe for the min it's not a risk but maybe Grunwald heard he wants to start or he wants more than a min 1 year deal.

    Let's get real though, he's 36 hasn't played in the NBA for a couple of seasons, I doubt he can help the Knicks.

    Do we not remember Steve Francis? Let's be a better franchise and stop getting guys like this. Iverson as great as he has been in his career he is now a has been.

    AI couldn't even play at a high level in Turkey,

    I doubt even the Bobcats will sign him.

    We already have Allen Iverson...Carmelo Anthony.We need defenders, and rebounders, not scorers people.Did we not learn anything, these past few years under C'ANToni?Playoff basketball is about defense, who in the hell is 36 year old A.I, gonna guard?I'm sorry, but i want to start building around defense, but that's just me.

    That whole ' MVPs don't come off the bench ' when he was in Detroit.........Just embarrassing.

    Is he another multi-millionaire baller that went broke?
    Pound 4 pound A.I. is better than Lebron, Shaq, Bird...

    Don't forget that he's 5'11, 165 lbs. What he has done (and the way he has done it) is unmatched in ball-history.

    And let's be real: Stuckey is trash and didn't deserve to start over A.I.

    Even Shaq admitted that Iverson was the greatest player in the 2Ks pound 4 pound.

    I know he's old, but he's still better than every PG we've had for the last 5-6 years (Lin aside).

    If you guys think Douglas is worthy of minutes over AI then you're insane. Signing him wouldn't be a risk at all since the contract is the minimum and non-guaranteed.

    It's getting more obvious that the NBA has silently banned him. If Curry could get signed by MIA after years of his crap then you know something is up.

    Eddie curry is a 29 year old 7 footer, while A.I, is a 36 year old 5'10 gunner way past his prime, you do the math.

    Nash is older and less athletic, and is one of the top PGs in the game.

    If A.I. is signed before the season, it wouldn't take long, if it any time at all, to get back into the shape he needs to be.

    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.
