Where do u c AI in the free agency summer of 2009? Do u c him staying in a sky blue uniform? takin the money and run to europe? or taking a huge pay-cut for a championship-contending team? or a nice philly-reunion?

i always wanted him to win a ring along side with melo...but hes not going to europe thats for sure he will most likely stay in denver or take a pay cutt to return to philly

I'm not Iverson, but I think he'll take the paycut and try to win a ring. I mean, don't you think he has made enough money over his career? The $ players are getting are crazy.. but yeah he should get witta championship contending team and get his ring already!

well i dont c him going 2 euro, actually no other country than usa. i think he'll b smart and take a big pay-cut and sign to win a chamionship. these r the teams i think he can b dangerous w/.

Western:

New Orleans Hornets: Their SG spot is weak. imagine the back-court duo of ai & cp3, 3-point specialist peja. Post presence and defence of Tyson Channdler, and David West. W/ still Posey & Mo off the bench.

I think the most sense is Going back Home with an Mle.

Miller, Iverson,Igoudala,Brand,Dalembert + Young,Smith,Speights, = DOPE TEAM.

If not i can easily imagine him filling the Point Guard Position in either Lakers or Celtics or the Sg position with the Spurs ,Mavs, Phoenix or.....HORNETS!!!!!!!.

Toronto would also make sense.


But what i think makes MOST sense is the world is a Terry +Fillers for Iverson trade.

Nuggets can do at Sg with JR, Nuggets need a Pg BADLY.

Mavs could use a real sg that can score from the Outside and coudl do with a MASSIVE Expiring Contract that expires alongside and same time than KIDDS MASSIVE Contract.

Burn that Last Bridge Attitude.

In fact i would TOO trade Josh Howard For Rasheed .

Kidd,Iverson,Stakchouse,Dirk, Sheed....... The Old Fart EXPIRING NOW OR NEVER Sqad.

It works GREAT now we can rebuild.

It Doesnt? Well To hell with all of them , CAP SPACE here we go!!!

As a Sixers fan, I love the team that we have in place here and I think Iverson may ruin some of the chemistry....

BUT

He is always welcome back in Philly cus he was the heart and soul of this team for over a decade and we owe it to him.


This is the best team weve had in years and adding Iverson would probably be Icing on the cake. If it doesnt work out for the sixers this year, Iverson would be a great fit.

i just found out that in 2009, Mike James' contract and Sean Marks contract of the New Orleans Hornets will finish, in time of AI's. Those 2 contracts will add up to $8m. Im pretty sure thas wut AI is looking for as well, so this is a possibility. man would the hornets b fun to watch!

It would be great to see Allen Iverson take the pay cut, and join a combo backcourt in Philedelphia. Igoudala can play either shooting guard or small forward, so it works out great. The preferable option would be Iverson at shooting guard, with both him and Miller running the point. Another less preferable, but still good option, is Iverson in the backcourt with Igoudala at shooting guard. With Igoudala, Brand, and hopefully Miller, Iverson could put Philadelphia way over the top.

Ok he "could" Play Point but..... you only play with one ball and wouldnt be serious conteders....

One thing is renouncing to some shots a game because there is Kobe and Pau or Garnett and Pierce in exchange for a title.

these teams "cant afford to pay attention", all are at or over the cap,if they made a trade these lineups would change dramatically(AI makes 20.84mil).

Only a few teams could sign him or make a trade for him. Memphis,OKC and Portland will have any real cash.(AI wouldnt go to Memphis or OKC, NO chance for a ring)

Portland,Detroit and Dallas have enough to make a trade.Detroit and Dallas have no need for him.

Really only Portland could make something happen and give him a real shot at a ring(Lakers could also).Denver might consider a trade with Portland even though there in the same division because Portland could get him for no compensation at the end of the season anyway.Look at this lineup

I personally DONT understand why everyone is so souped about CP3 and AI combo. I think it is kinda bad. Chris Paul truly dominates the ball in NO. He is the main scorer and main assist man.

Iverson would just be someone to run with Chris Paul, but that isnt Iverson's true role in any team.

hey "blazerman", were talkin abt 09, when hes a free agent. hes going to ask less tha $8. im sure. the 1z that would surely have enough money that can b dangerous, and would take him into consideration r these 2 teams.

New Orleans Hornets: Mike James' contract + Sean Marks contract finishes when iversons does, their contract add up to $8m. They can sign AI, w/ having the exact same cap room. Mike James never really played w/hornets, and his contract is abt $7m. And sean marks is a benchwarmer, $700k.
PG: CP3
SG: AI
SF: Peja
PF: D-West
C: Chandler

SG: Mo-Pete

Los Angeles Lakers: This can only have a chance of happening if they dont re-sign LO. LO's contract is $13m which means AI would probally ask for $9m. This would b absolutley deadly. Kobe would have to move to the 3 spot, but its kobe, he can play either.
PG: Fish
SG: AI

PF: Pau
C: Bynum

SG: Sasha
SF: Ariza
PF: Radman

Cleveland Cavailers: Wally Szczerbiak $13m contract will finish when ai's does, which means they'll surely have enough money to land ai, and it would b perfect 2 try keeping lebron in ohio. this would b one of the deadliest combos.
PG: Mo-Will

These r the other teams that would b good fit, but not sure they can come up w/ tha money.

Only an idiot would give up a starter when the hall of famer is 33yr and his contract is expiring. If Denver does get rid of him its just a continuation of the cost cutting mode, only a few teams could give them something they might want and at the same time give them a player that has a expiring contract.

Channing Frye,Sergio Rodrigeuz,Webster,Diogu,Blake,Draft picks,Lefrentz and his contract, any of these guys could be dealt and could be packaged.

Or keep them all and take him at the end of the season for nothing. Denver would be smart to take a good young player or two and some picks to help them out.
Or lose the HALL OF FAMER FOR O STARTERS AND O BENCH PLAYERS AND O PICKS.

The funny thing is Denver will be lucky to have 6mil if they lose him for nothing, due to the increases in certain players contracts for the following season.

The hornets wont have nearly as much money as you think after Mike James and If thats the same James that was a Rocket and Twolve see who pays most of that salary and I do believe C Paul will count alot more against the cap next season( remember he got a big pay raise a few months ago). They have no extra cash next yr. Basically they could only trade for him.

None of these teams could sign him as a free agent when they there at the cap max.
PHILLY- JUST SIGNED BRAND AND IGGY "NO CAP MOEY NEXT YR"

CAVS- WHEN WALLY IS GONE THEY WILL STILL BE AT THE CAP MAX
they would have to make a trade during season

LAKERS- If they dont trade Odom during the season they will still be at the cap max.

Utah- If they re-up Boozer they will be lucky to hire a towel boy!

PORTLAND- All their good players are on their first contract(Oden,Roy,Aldridge,Bayless,Rudy and Outlaw 2yrs at only 4mil per yr,Pryzbilla only 5mil,Blake 4mil). they will have up to 20/30 mil cap space at the end of the season with the top 8 players locked up.

Who knows its all speculation as to who goes where anyway.I think Portland wants a top flight sf anyway.

Amyway i agree portland woudl be wise to pack 3 or 4 of their players for a BIG TIME small foward or BIg time Point guard because too much talent is too many, they will start quarreling about playiing time and touches, adn after that about contracts.

they should trade at least 1 player of each of this trios Roy/Bayless/Rudy Webster/Outlow/BAtum ALdrige/Fyre/Diogu..

You guys keep assuming that AI will sign for the MLE. That doesn't make sense,
If you were allen Iverson, at age 33, would you take about 5 mil or so and you know you're going to score about 24-25 a game. No.

My guess is that a sign and trade with a stacked team... Or maybe a three way team trade, there are certainly alot of teams who are going to want to shake things up to reshape their roster.

Mavs will be active once more (terry). They're trying to win a a title with kidd and dirk.

Bulls will make moves (hinrich, gordon... My guess is that hinrich is gone after rose makes the transition in feburary. They are certainly a few moves away from putting together a team that can make a run for the title.

Pistons. Let's not forget they were trying to get carmelo anthony. Why? They need more offense. Peeople have caught on to Detroit's game... They're in the market for a major force at the 3. Why? Because they invision a backcourt combo of billups and stuckey. (sheed for jamison package)

Cavs still have some tweaking to do and have some attractive pieces such as wally's contract.

Rockets. Still have tweaking as well.. They need a pass first pg to make everything work. Not to say that skip isn't good. But 6apg, isn't want the rockets need, especially with guys like McGrady, artest, yao who can each up 20 a game. (Nash would be perfect) They also have a lot of pgs.

Watch for these teams to be involved in the 3 way deals and such. This is how guys like AI will find new homes.

well i still dont get the deal w/ cavs. if wally+snow leave, thas $21m off tha books. i dont get y they cant sign ai. if they cant, they can trade AI for Wally + Snow + Money.
http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/traderesult?players=366~796~831&teams=5~7~7&te=&cash=7:5
Wally+snow's contracts finish the same time as ai, plus the get $$$$.

I also dont get the hornets thing. mike james and armstrong's contracts finish next season (same as ai) and add up to $8m, which they can sign ai w/.

Forgot one huge team, LA CLIPPERS! there less than a million off of cap space. they can easily sign ai, and mite b a big threat. their perimeter play would b unstoppable. b-diddy, ai, thorton, gordon, kaman, camby.

Lakers, i take back. i dont think they even have a chance, even if they dont re-sign lo, bynum's contract finishes, and im pretty sure hes gunna want around over $8m.

Philly would only be able to sign if he goes for MLE. out of all teams, philly has the biggest chance to sign him w/ only MLE. c, ai would take philly in consideration, a threat already in the east, y not go home and possibly have ur final runs at a championship, w/ the team that gave u ur stardom.

Portland can b a possibility, but im not sure if they'd want ai. lafrentz contract finishes when ai's duz, and it was $12m, enough to sign ai. he'd probally play the point, roy at sg, webster sf, aldridge, and oden. can b young talent w/ a twist!

Raptors can only b an option if JO takes a pay-cut to re-sign w/ raps, (eto), but i highly doubt ai would want to move to canada. it could b the missing piece to bring canada a championship though, jose, ai, parker, bosh, jo.

Allen Iverson don't need a ring because he don't deservse one and I hope the all the teams in the NBA are smart enough not to put Allen on their team.
