Ok, AI finally erupetd for 30 points last night and helped the Pistons eek out victory against the lowly Sacremento Kings. Then on our beloved forum he was criticized for his lack of defense!! As I mentioned in another thread, AI was not brought here to be a lockdown perimiter defender, or for his defense at all. He was brought here to provide scoring when the usual drought happens, say every other game or so. I heard Eric Snow say on NBA TV the other day that AI must be aggressive, in attack mode at all times to be effective. He must get to the line 8-10 times a game, and I`m going to say it........avg. 20+ points a game for this Piston team. I agree with him. So, Sheed, Tay, Rip and others, let AI do his thing. Oh yeah, he can pass the ball, don`t believe the hype about he can`t deliver a nice assist now and then, just catch it and finish after he draws your man while penetrating. The bottom kline is, a passive Allen Iverson is of no value to this team, an agressive AI can one can make others better. UNLEASH THE ANSWER!!!!
