I have a theory about the ages of the people for and against him myself. I think if you grew up watching games from the 80's or before you probably don't like him all that much. And if AI was the "in" thing growing up you look at him in a good way.




The older people are the correct ones.  ;D

I am 53. I'll take him.

My age is irrelevant and I am not a diehard Iverson fan, but a diehard Celtics fan. I was merely suggesting we give him a go. ;D

43.

And I'm not sure what you mean about "The older ones are the correct ones."

I'll feign ignorance, for your sake.

Additionally - I've always liked AI...for pretty much the same reasons that the Legendary Red Auerbach did - Red called him a warrior, among other things.

That "fight" never leaves a player.

That same "fight" is what drives Ray Allen - the same player that almost toasted BOS last sunday.

Don't count out these "Old Heads", Young Fella ;)

no.

obviously someone can't see sarcasm.


After reading through this thread and seeing the responses that were known to be coming (not by anyone specific but we have at least 4 AI threads a year), do you now understand my response?
