Maybe he talking about Blake Grffin's Summer League debut? He did put up 27 and 12...

But Nate Robinson also dominated Summer League so, we should probably reserve judgement.

Yeah, I don't think he'll be anything more that a solid back up Center... But the league doesn't really have too many true Centers anymore and he is a true Center so I can see why a lot of teams would want him.

marcin gortat had some strong minutes in the play-offs, especially when howard was banned. i think that he would have a double-double as a starter. however, i dont see why the magics pay so much for him just to keep him as a back-up...

I think he trade bait, and you gotta give credit to the Magic they took their time with all this. by taking their time they got Bass and ppl in Dallas basically thought with the magic getting Bass they wouldnt match Gortat's offer. they did and Dallas got fucked.

dallas offseason went rather bad so far. they got shawn marion, but actually they have a similar sf with howard. and also they could not get another pg than slow and old kidd. bass left and they still have the worst starting five center in the whole league...

Yeah, but their starting 5 is definitely better than a bunch of other teams, such as the Knicks. lol

yeah definetly one of the best in the league, especially offensively. ppl will argue Dirk's toughness but he one of the best players in the league. they would have been better off keeping Harris, and getting a defensive centre. the Kidd trade killed them.

The Mavericks are going to have the same old problems they always do, so they really did not address anything if you ask me. I know they tried to with Gortat.

Im really surprised the Magic matched it, and I personally think its a waste of money because GOrtat will always be the backup and they already picked up Bass.

I think Dwight leaves Orlando whenever his deal is up.

you can never blame a player if he puts up 40 points every game. what else could he do lift mo williams near the net so he could dunk it??

I think Orlando only matched it so they can trade Gortat. alot of teams wanted to get Gortat cause of the lack of centres in the league. Magic saw this and they matched, they will probably get a couple of good offers for Gortat.

lol

LAS VEGAS – Why would the Los Angeles Clippers want to thrust Allen Iverson(notes) into the life of gifted young guard Eric Gordon(notes)? The answer is as simple as it’s flawed: box office over basketball. The worst owner in sports, Donald T. Sterling, believes A.I. can do what No. 1 pick Blake Griffin(notes) has been thus far unable – sell tickets.

Perhaps the Clippers could give winning a chance, but Sterling is hell-bent on dysfunction. Everyone walked out of the Thomas & Mack Center late Monday so impressed with the Clippers’ young cornerstones, Griffin and Gordon. Yet, Sterling, sitting courtside, couldn’t see the truth unfolding before his eyes. Iverson is a bad investment for the Clippers. Iverson is a shell of himself now, and worst of all, he’s the last to know.

Nevertheless, the Clippers are far behind in tickets sales over this time a year ago, according to internal NBA data obtained by Yahoo! Sports. As of July 6, the Clippers were significantly down in season ticket-renewals and new plans. The NBA’s analysis projected a 29.3 percent drop in ticket revenue for Clippers for the 2009-10 season.

“That’s the only reason [the Clippers] are even thinking of doing this,” one rival GM said. “Why else do this to Gordon?”

The most money available to Iverson would be a one-year deal at the mid-level exception of $5.8 million. He still thinks he can restore his starry reputation with a high-scoring season. Iverson still believes his chance to get one more big contract will be born out of a lot of shots and a lot of scoring. Those days are done for Iverson, who proved himself unwilling, and maybe incapable, of playing a complementary role with the Detroit Pistons last season.

When he couldn’t be a starter, he gladly accepted banishment with a “back injury.” Alongside Baron Davis(notes), the prospect of Iverson infringing on Gordon’s development is toxic. Gordon is 20 years old. He tried to play the earnest kid when asked about the possibility of Iverson joining the Clippers, but deep down, he has to understand this is the worst scenario for his sophomore season in the pros.

Miami is offering less than $3 million a season to play with Dwyane Wade(notes), a circumstance that makes more basketball sense for the Heat. They need another scorer, and young Miami guard Mario Chalmers(notes) isn’t nearly the prospect that Gordon is with the Clippers. The Memphis Grizzlies are offering the mid-level, too, but they’re just another desperate, wayward franchise that thinks Iverson can still sell some seats.

It’s no accident that two of the worst owners in the NBA, Sterling and Michael Heisley, are pushing their basketball executives to chase one of summer shopping’s worst ideas: Allen Iverson. There’s a reason these teams are in the lottery every year, and here’s another why they’ll be back again.

who would have thought that Iverson would be one of the most unwanted Free Agents in the NBA.

Ive never liked Iverson or his game.

He was the epitome of what was wrong with the NBA after Jordan retired.
