Iverson probably has the skills to still be a successful bench player in the NBA.  He doesn't have the mentality, though.

I agree fully. If Mike James can do it (turning 37 in June) SO can AI

That be something to watch lol.

I'd rather pick up Delonte and continue to try and move Terry/Lee and or Bass for a Big.

Iverson would atleast make this season interesting instead of a crap shoot. Im all for it. Heck of a story line. Imagine if the team started getting on another hot roll into the playoffs with him. You cant make that stuff up.

Sadly, I dont think AI can ball anymore. Maybe this potential D-league stint can change peoples minds.

No. He doesn't have the legs, and has not
had the legs which made him great for
10 years.

He hasn't been any good since 2007/2008.  That's an incredibly long time ago.

Bring him in for some workouts, no joke.  What's the worst thing that can happen?  Do we need another 1/2?  Probably not, but I would be open to the C's working him out and seeing where he would stand in our current depth chart.

The Celtics are not bringing Iverson in even for a look. They haven't done it anytime since Iverson left the NBA. That was years ago.

Arguments can be made that the C's have needed a backup PG for years and yet Iverson was never brought in.

If they didn't bring him in when he was closer to NBA shape, much younger and skill having some NBA skills what in the God Green world of Celtics basketball makes ANYONE think they will do it now?

From his twitter:

Allen Iverson ‏@alleniverson
I thank Donnie and Dallas for the consideration and while I think the D-League is a great opportunity, it is not the route for me.

I realize my actions contributed to my early departure from the NBA, should God provide me another opportunity I will give it my all

My dream has always been to complete my legacy in the NBA

To my fans, I love yall! Not a day goes by that I am not asked when am I coming back, we all must accept my return is not up to just me.
Michael Jordan: It's a man's game, and you can't play.
 Bill Murray: It's 'cause I'm white, isn't it?
Michael Jordan: No. Larry's white, so what?
Bill Murray: Larry's not white. Larry's clear.

not sure the point of this thread.

We need a big too. Now that we've all gone nuts and want old people why not call up Robert Parish?

AI's ego is so big he thinks the D-League is beneath him. We don't need anyone like that now.

I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just saying that I would bring him in for a look if he were interested.

I just saw this thread...I knew, somehow, that it would happen though.  Now I am going back to bed with a bottle of asperin and an ice pack.   Thanks, much.

I would bet my house & car A.I. could be a better fit in Jason Terry's role in our system & run circles around Terry as a player also right now. We have a gaping hole at PG-SG & in my eyes it wouldn't hurt to bring him in for a workout.
