You guys were around in the late 90's and early 2000's right?
You remember Iverson jacking shots up regardless of whether a team mate was open and had a better shot right?
You remember Iverson not wanting to practice and making his now famous comments, right?
You remember him butting heads with just about every coach he had and disregarding plays the coaches wanted run so he could play his game, right?
You remember his Rondo like defense of playing the passing lanes, letting less talented and less athletically gifted players go right by him and only playing some defense when he felt like it right?
You remember the early in the shot clock three pointers, the ridiculous drives to the basket without dumping it down to an open big, the pull up shots in traffic while triple teamed, right?
You remember how he alienated so so many of his team mates and how after leaving Philly, just getting worse and worse but still expecting a 30 shot a night role, right?
You remember him giving up on Detroit because his coach wanted him playing a lesser role, right?
You remember him saying he would play off the bench in Memphis but then leaving the team when he didn't get his way right?
You remember his going back to Philly promising to be good after being a last chance and then blowing that by leaving them high and dry, right?
You remember the horrible example he set for younger players and how he never gelled with any other good to great player to produce a title competing club, right?
Basically, Iverson was all about AI and about the least "team" oriented player in maybe the history of the game. Why admire that? Why want that on your team? Why would any coach want someone like that on their team?
Stop remembering his toughness or the way he brought in the gangsta brand of basketball player, which was so popular amongst teens during his era. Start remembering all the extra stuff he brought that current day players, coaches and GMs just won't put up with.
Sorry there is exactly ZERO proof this man has changed his attitude. Why even think about risking losing your coach or players or locker room or risk his attitude effecting your younger players.
I want my youngsters exposed to the Pierces, Allens, and Garnetts of the world and I never want AI anywhere near a young player signed to my team.
