BUT DO NOT SIT THERE AND LIE (Refering to the bolded)
If you 'Like' Anything about the Sixers and as Celtics fan your being fake and insulting both teams. Don't forget these teams are Rivals your not suppose to like them. Respect them? okay sure but dont be so casual about it.
When its all said and done the words when its everyone else its u applys here
Dont act all high and mighty like your doing the sixers fanbase a favor by bashing Iverson. Your pissed off and bitter that Paul Perice who you believe to be better never got the same level of praise and recognition. Thats all this is about thats all its ever been about and to pretend otherwise is insulting.
dont act like your defending our history.
Ps. You dont know Iverson Personally you have no right to speak on his 'True Nature' .
He's just stupid, doesn't make him a bad person. Just not too bright.
Of course I hated the '81 76'ers, but not much later the 76'ers fell to ruin and so did the Celts - with very little to stoke it up since the mid 80's.
What good is winning if there isn't a great team involved? The two Championships against the Rockets in the 80's was a major let down compared to facing the Lakers, or that ECF Series against the 76'ers dwarfed the Rockets Series's.
I might have a lot of dislike for some players (invariably volume shooters), but ahead of that I'm a serious student of the game, having both played D1, seen the NBA back to the days of Russell, and recently retired from coaching 15 years worth of AAU and Travel teams ages 10-16. So just because I loathe Iverson doesn't mean I don't know what I'm talking about. I'm also mostly hated on the Celts board due to my constant picking on the phoney image and lies told over there about Rondo.
Try to see if you can put that all together...
BTW, I've never been a big PP fan having to fight a good sized collection of Celts fans on PSD about how he was better then Bird - of all the cockamamie baloney.
Iverson could be the best 1 on 1 under 6' player of all time - too bad the game is 5 x 5, and efficiency counts for a very great deal.
Oh Btw tell those fans your arugeing with that pierce shouldn't even be mentioned in the same conversion as Bird. But dont you pretend you have never argued Perice>Iverson because its the first argument i have ever had with you.
As for the bolded this is where u miss my point once again. i understand that post is a slide at Iverson as a teammate once again calling him all about himself but you seemed to totally Ignore that i said u have no right to judge a players True nature because u don't know them personally.
Untill a report comes out saying u and Iverson have known each other for years and some crazy **** went down i don't care about how u view Allen Iverson no one does stop trying to FORCE your opinion on others
Where is you evidence AI is a selfish guy? and dont just bring up FG% because so much more goes into it than that.
I do have too give you credit on 1 thing though bagwell your the one Celtics fan i know who doesn't criminally overrate Rondo
