I don't see how they aren't any crappy teams in the NBA that couldn't use his offensive production.
I think alot of teams can use him as a spark off the bench, but Iverson refuses to do that. He wants to start and I can't think of any team that would start him right away. Philly might do it, but even that's questionable.
I think he should be starting over Conley, but Hollins obviously doesn't think so. And I can kinda see why. Conley is the only player in the Grizzlies starting line up who looks to pass instead of shoot. I think it's fucked up that the Grizzlies signed him telling him they were serious about winning and then sitting him on the bench so they can develop their young talent. I can see why AI is frustrated but unless he's willing to take the role of a 6th man no team is going to sign him.
A.I need to understand his time as a starter (on a good team) has come and gone.
Iverson is a selfish piece of shit.
He is all about himself and the proof is in the pudding.
never liked him
Look eye, always look eye.
On Sunday, the New York Times's Pete Thamel filed a dispatch from Haifa, Israel. Why was a college sports reporter filing from Haifa? Thamel was checking in on Jeremy Tyler, the 18-year-old uber-prospect who, in the wake of Brandon Jennings's now-viewed-as-successful European experiment, decided to forgo his senior year of high school and play overseas for Maccabi Haifa.
Thamel reports that Tyler's decision is at this point -- which, to be fair, is very early in the process -- not only regrettable but disastrous. Tyler is clearly immature and distracted by the potential of NBA riches, which he apparently considers a sure thing. His coaches and teammates do not like him. He is struggling to see minutes on the court. And if things keep getting worse, Tyler's NBA draft status is likely to keep falling. These early returns are not promising. A key graph:
His coach calls him lazy and out of shape. The team captain says he is soft. His teammates say he needs to learn to shut up and show up on time. He has no friends on the team. In extensive interviews with Tyler, his teammates, coaches, his father and advisers, the consensus is that he is so naïve and immature that he has no idea how naïve and immature he is. So enamored with his vast potential, Tyler has not developed the work ethic necessary to tap it.
well thats the main problem with NBA prospects going to Europe. In Europe the coaches will be all over you if you dont do as your told. Its easy to think that any American can make it in Europe. the truth is its far tougher than most players think, these high school players trying to make it in Europe will suffer badly. they may learn a few things like Jennings has, but even that has been shocking considering Jennings sucked in Europe.
the same can be said about Europe being the logical choice for Iverson to go, only one Euro team will take him and i doubt they will go through the trouble to do so. players who cause discontent in teams like Iverson are let go quickly in Europe, and the fans wont appreciate it either, and fan reaction in Europe can easily make a team get rid of a player.
Can ya feel the Heat down in ya sooooul!!

Look eye, always look eye.
