Yeah, but you're still in great shape, and you look solid in suspenders and a fedora.
Who will be the last starter introduced at home games now?
AI expected to play Wednesday night against Toronto.
I hadn't planned on it, but if you guys want to have one...just make the case and I'll get it done. I know the big trade happened, but since AI won't be in uniform tonight, I didn't think everyone would want to chop it up.
But, I should be open if you all desire a postgame show.
I wonder if Stuckey sells AI his number? Or does AI take Chauncey's old number??
I love that Pistons got Celtics Fans shaking in their boots. KG eats their cap a lot.
LOL @ Larry Brown's comment: (Was that a reference to their ages?)
“Trading Marilyn Monroe for Jane Russell. That’s not bad,” Brown said. “Joe knows what he’s doing, and I’m happy Chauncey’s going back to Denver and his family is there.”
Nuggets, Pistons swap Iverson for Billups, McDyess - NBA - Yahoo! Sports
My strong belief this cap room will be leverage in trades, I doubt we go out and sign anyone (at least anyone major). I think we trade for Bosch BEFORE he becomes a free agent (and then resign him...)
Once again, Joe D shows why he's the best in the game.
As I said on another board, Iverson won't be running this team!!!
Prince can run this team until one of the PG's ganstas a brain from the scarecrow!
Rip now has a big contract. *sigh*
Gee. I wonder what board that was?
Mee too, my memory is fading(lol).
I also think this trade will revitalize and motivate Sheed, for two reasons!!!
Sheed will be forced to operate at a higher level(it's a respect thing)
Sheed will benefit a lot from Iversons penetration, and get a lot more easy opportunities close to the rim.
This trade is all about what fits, and AI really does fit here, and I believe Denver needs Chauncey's cool hand to run that team, they're really leaderless, and CB has the street cred.
Yow! Joe Dumars surprises and delights!
I just can't see any downside to this deal. I watched two Denver-Seattle games last year at the Key, and believe me, Iverson is still a major talent. With Iverson and Rip running around like crazy, I expect Amir, Maxiell, and Prince to have plenty of alley-oops and dunk opportunities. And, if it doesn't work out, there will be plenty of money to spend on someones else.
I'm ordering my AI jersey as soon as they are available. My Rodman is getting a little thin.
I think i'm starting to warm up to this trade, and by warming up i mean i no longer feel like throwing up so it's probably a step in the right direction.
Not sure what to think of this trade. It was a shocker, for sure..as much as Chauncey got ragged on, I was always a big fan. Iverson isn't really a PG, though I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing in Curry's system - and he's a hell of a talent. Now we'll have good slashers both on the bench and in the starting lineup. It's shaking up the team alright, two of last year's starters are now gone. I guess we'll see.
Yes! I'm with you ag.
For me the most frustrating thing about the past few years is dudes taking the night off. Conversely, what was fun about seeing some of the younguns in the playoffs last year was that they brought energy and love for the game and left it all out there on the floor. I have never seen AI do any less than that.
I'm not even saying he will make us better (though I think he will). And I'm not even saying that financially it puts us in a much better position in the very near future (though I think it does).
I'm just saying this makes them more fun to watch, which is for me what it's all about.
I just hope Rip doesn't start bringing the ball up the court - even some of the times. That is the LAST thing I want to see. That is NOT his game.
Rip bringing the ball up the court is like watching a kid that has had too much candy and they are bouncing off the walls out of control from it.
