Why him? Why not?
Allen Iverson has given a press conference in which he states to not understanding why the team needs to get rid of him. Personally, I wouldn't trade the best little man the league has ever seen but as you all might guess, I'm a little biased.
I really want him to be traded. My first choice would be the Denver Nuggets. Denver has an amazing rising star in Melo. A hard working small forward (name 5 who are better) that just came off a great season. Carmelo and Iverson have something else in common. They have both been under-appreciated. I also believe that George Karl will be a great coach for AI.
I don't know if I still want to be a Philly fan once Iverson is gone. I have followed the team for so long that it will be very difficult to not do so but damn Billy King, you must be the worst GM in sports. I hate the direction this team is headed. BK has made no significant moves. His best off season move was getting rid of Salmons.
The sixers need to blow it all up and I have a feeling that it will not happen. Billy could have sent AI to the Celtics on draft night but didn't have the "cojones" to pull the plug. He also is hesitant to take in Kenyon Martin and his questionable knee. So Billy is just being Billy.
