    Find out who makes Orville Redenbacher's and buy some stock, because a lot of people will be downing popcorn like crazy watching AI and LB go at it this season.

    I can almost guarantee this will end badly.

    Thanks for updating us Krowe.

    The new Kobe and Shaq are in Charlotte-AI and Tyson Chandler ...
    The Bobcats are officially in title contention.
    Great deal...

    Now if the Bobcats win more games this year with AI then the Pistons did last year with him, then that will cement LB's legacy that he is imdeed a better coach than Curry:MusicBigGrin:

    ..... and it was Curry that almost destroyed the AI legacy:sssh:

    Call me crazy but I think Bobcats with Iverson will be a big suprise this season.I'm not talking about NBA finals suprise,but 3-5 place in the east,if some good teams don't work or get's injury problems.Larry Brown knows how to use 100% Iverson,when our Curry could only use 50% of Iverson's potenial.

    What do they have to lose. They only won 35 games last year and it's an addition, not a trade where you are replacing an all-star. Expectations will be what they are. I don't think anyone is expecting him to get them to the Finals.

    If only the Detroit coach and players would be afforded that luxury for the upcoming season...

    Makes sense for both parties, and I wish AI the best. I think he's acted idiotically last season and is feeling the repercussions of his actions, but I'm not one of those silly people that blame the Pistons ill will on him.

    Hope he has a great season.

    They made an offer to RFA Raymond Felton, which he hasn't acceted yet. How will the AI signing effect that?

    I don't think they're signing AI. The goal is to shake up Felton.

    Too bad Iverson can't use 100% of his potential. He has spent the off season waiting for a team who was unable to make any successful moves sign up for the only train wreck that people can pay to watch (except for G.I. Joe).

    After the bobcats spent the off season doing some community service in new orleans (chandler), drafting their player and...that's it. Now they need to do this last minute signing to convince fans that they are serious about making the playoffs. It'll be fun to see him and larry in the press conference, especially when they replay it late May under the headline "what happened?"

    I can't see how it could fail. What would that be - win under 30 games? If I had to establish a high water mark I would say 32 games. Over 32 wins and it's a success - under 32 wins then they will have to explain what happened at the end of the year.

    Is it that possible that owner signed AI to make team more attractive? AI still draws attention and for owner it may be "sweetening the deal" selling strategy.

    I'm kinda viewing his effect on a franchise differently now...
