Worst comes to worst, try to bargain a $8 million deal with only $1000 guaranteed and a team option to waive him if we don't win the championship.

We're over the salary cap.  We're not signing anyone to a $8 million deal.  And why is that a bargain?  Why would you outbid his next highest offer by $8 million?

He's not signing a 10 day contract.  Unless that was sarcasm too.

Is this a joke post?

I think he would sign a 10 day because he has enough belief in himself to make that 10 day permanent! Plus its not the DL & he would be proving himself amongst other NBA players as in the shot he is looking for. PTI Wilbon was talking about Iverson earlier as he just wants a shot.

Not just NO but HECK NO!

Older than dirt and can't even make a DL team, he is shot and done.

I absolutely would sign AI for the rest of the season. Not that he and Barbosa are identical players, but they both provide that energy off the bench and AI knows what it takes to succeed.

There is no guarantee that he will be amazing, but why not give him a shot. When he was terrible during his last stint in the NBA, he wasn't playing for a top-flight franchise like the Celtics. I think he would take his opportunity with us very seriously.

And I couldn't care less that he wouldn't play in the D-League. Frankly, he is above it and he shouldn't waste his body playing there when he doesn't need to.

Ainge brought him in last week through the good word & graces of Tom Heinsohn, but he couldn't pass the physical so Ainge had to look elsewhere. lol

Gave you a TP because it is exactly what I said! It is beneath him to rot out there & he is above it due to his former accomplishments as a ELITE NBA player.

TP to you, too. I guess the end of my post does resemble yours quite a bit...hopefully AI gets one more chance, either with us or someone else.

I guess it's been a while since we've had an Allen Iverson thread ::)

The problem with Cooz is that he's a ball hog who is always looking to pad his assist stats, and he can't shoot from the perimeter.  Plus, he's arrogant, surly, and cocky.

I say we bring in Michael Jordan.  Antawn Jamison just said he thinks he could still play so lets just bring him in for a workout.
