Stern and his code....more AI bashing

It's plain ridiculous. What pissess me off is that the league and ESPN are putting Iverson in the Middle of this controversy. They all say that AI is protesting the code. Those fools should buy a freakin dictionary and look up PROTEST. AI is only answering their questions Most players don't agree with the code but, as usual AI haters like ESPN folks tend to place the heat on AI so they can get nice quotes. I'm so sick of the AI bashing, it's so old. Why don't they mention that he is helping and motivating his teamates like never before or how no other player in the pre-season games has scored more than AI. Don't get me started RIC BUCHER and Co. I spent all of last season fighting with you guys about this and I don't mind doing it again.

Just a little something something!

Iverson on Iverson: "I had a lot of growing up to do, and a lot of times I learned the hard way. I think those experiences helped me be the way I am right now mentally. I went through hell here, with the media, coaching situations, even times with fans... everything. I really feel that I am a man. I feel that being here in Philadelphia helped me become just that. I wouldn't trade it for the world, because I think it made me a better player, it made me a better person, it made me a better father, it made me a better husband, a better teammate. I took my bumps but I've had my great times here."
Put your average NBA fan back-to-back with Allen Iverson, and they'll surely identify with him. At 6-0, Iverson doesn't tower over anyone like your typical superstar would. At 165, he might even give up a few pounds. Yet A.I. has managed to carve out an implausible career in the league that his pedestrian size makes us admire.
A career 27.4-point per game scoring average 16,738 total points Most Valuable Player of the 2000-01 regular season All-Star MVP in 2001 and 2005 Three-time First Team All-NBA (1999, 2001, 2005) Owner of three scoring titles Rookie of the Year in 1996-97 NBA Finals appearance in 2001
A.I.'s résumé has all of the things that we dreamt of accomplishing every time we took jump shots on our driveways as kids. When we watch him, we get to live out those fantasies, as well as draw strength from his incredible toughness.
Knocked around by opponents every time his slight frame and unrestrained style of play hits the floor, Iverson always gets back up. His penchant for playing hurt teaches us to get back up when life knocks us around.
And that's why we love Iverson. He inspires us with something even the little guy can have a lot of.

Webber is excited early about Sixers' fresh startBy Joe JulianoInquirer Staff Writer
DURHAM, N.C. - Three days of the 76ers' training camp have been completed. There are still three more days of camp, plus practices and eight preseason games, before the Sixers start playing for real Nov. 1.
But if the smile that lit up Chris Webber's face yesterday means anything, things under new head coach Maurice Cheeks are off to a rousing start.
"You see me smile last year?" Webber asked reporters after practice at Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium. "It feels good. It's a great environment and a great atmosphere, so I couldn't be happier right now."
Smiles from Webber were rare last season. He struggled to find his game in former coach Jim O'Brien's system after his Feb. 23 trade from Sacramento to the Sixers, and his sore left knee didn't help matters any.
Webber worked hard to strengthen his knee in the off-season. Before the start of training camp, he said, Cheeks met with him and clearly outlined his role on the team. Cheeks did the same thing with Allen Iverson, and "we're both happy with that," Webber said.
Webber gave credit to Cheeks for fostering a positive camp atmosphere.
"I'm not speaking against anyone else," he said, "but with Mo, when you're so confident and you know that you've done what you've done, you don't have to prove anything.
"It's almost like, 'Guys, you want to listen to me and you want to win, you'd better listen. If you don't, I'll find somebody else.' I think that helps the role players. I want what Mo has, and that's a championship. I admire what he's done. He's been a man first and a coach second. If you're a good man, it's easy to be a good coach."
As he tries to find ways for Webber and Iverson to mesh, Cheeks is similarly complimentary toward Webber.
"Chris and Allen were very good [yesterday] the way they were mixing together," Cheeks said. "That's one of the things we're trying to do in camp, getting everyone used to playing with each other. You can see when you put the ball in Chris' hands, the things that he can do getting guys easy shots. He just makes our offense so much better when you put the ball in his hands."
Cheeks said Webber "seems to be running fine."
Webber said the style of offense introduced by Cheeks is "something that I'm a little more accustomed to," giving him the ball in a position where he can find cutters or an open man spotted up.
Naturally, the question everyone asks is whether Webber and Iverson can coexist in the lineup, whether they're ready to make the sacrifices that will help the strategy succeed.
Webber said it's a matter of each player stepping up his game instead.
"We've got to lead these guys," he said. "Energy without experience isn't always the best combination. You have that combination of energy and experience, youth and experience, so I think if anything, we're going to raise our games to a level to make sure we get to where we need to be."
Of course, a season goes on for more than three days. There will be frustration and conflict and some rough patches between now and the end of the regular season April 19, seemingly 1,000 days from now.
But for Webber, it's been a lovely start.
"I'm very encouraged, very encouraged," he said. "It's been nothing but positive. It's nothing but hard work, and that's all you can ask for. It feels great out here."

Training Camp Opens

My SIXERS had their first practice today and New head coach Mo Cheeks was very satisfied with what he saw. He said that Webber was healthy and that most guys looked in shape. Go SIXERS!!

Toronto traded Rafer Alston to Houston.

I think that the Eddy Curry trade is a win win situation.

More details later...gotta go now!!!
