personally i think he would be great for the rockets on a one year deal

they are lacking extremely in the scoring department and need a go to guy until Tmac and yao get back

not sure on whether the rockets still have the bi-annual to spend. but if they could pick him up at that price i think they have a shot to hang on until there studs come back

LMFAO studs? Tmac and Yao are both as good as done, even if Tmac and Yao return they won't have anything left. Tmac is in his 30s now, Yao is turning 30 next season, both coming off career-ending injuries. The Rockets have a better chance to declare AI their new franchise player, he probably has more years left in him than Tmac and Yao combined and yes I know he's 34, but I also know that before Detroit he avged 26+ppg, 7+apg and 2+spg, which would be great stats for any franchise player, stats Tmac has failed to accomplish in Houston even while healthy. Not saying that AI to Houston would ever happen, just saying that Rockets fans need to get off their high-horse and understand they may have to start all over again.

regardless they are two proven all stars and the leaders of the team.. the team now without those two do not have the scorer they need to lead them so i reiterate my point that iverson being that 25 point scorer would be a perfect fit.

HORRIBLE idea iverson would kill the raptors where they lack is that defensive stopper/presence offense is defiantly not the problem.. i would see more of a raja bell type player as the starting shooting guard for the raptors instead of another 20 point scorer

t-mac and yao arent as good as done if they are still averageing more than 10 ppg.and neither had no "career-ending surgeries" if they are still playing.and we do understand that we are starting over again :mad:

Still he was a terrific player back in the day and still can score 20 points a night. I think his place is with a team thirsty on there last leg looking for a championship there the teams where hes worth the gamble.

if i had to pick the top five players in league able to create their own shots and put the ball in the net, Iverson would defiantly be in that list behind Lebron, Kobe, and Dwade

Iverson is not even close to being a pure scorer. He averaged 17.5 PPG last season as the 103rd least efficient player in the entire league, right behing O.J. Mayo.

iverson IS a pure scorer ... i am under the impression that you lack the knowledge to understand what i mean by that.. he puts the ball in the net with ease and makes it look easy as welll... yes he averaged 17.5 points a game AFTER he was traded to Detroit while he was with Denver he was averaging 21 a game... iverson can still put up huge number and on any given night he can drop 40 and you may quote me on that(Y)

Which takes us right back to how many shots attempts he has to take to put up those points. You do understand Efficiency is an indicator of how many times he has to shoot to score those points, right? If Iverson's efficiency rating is under 15, it means he is taking a lot more shots than he is making. It isn't as though he's an assist guru or a rebounding wizard. He's a chucker, and the Efficiency Rating proves it. I don't know what the Denver v Detroit argument is seeing as how efficiency doesn't care who a player plays for, only what they do with each possession.

i understand your arguement i have never said iverson is the player that every team needs. i agree with you 100 % that he is not efficient with his possessions. however i am again pointing out that he is a pure SCORER he puts points up and puts the ball in the hoop which is the point im trying to get across he scores regardless of the amount of touches he gets or what he does with them.

And given that, you still feel Iverson is the best option behind Kobe, LeBron, and D-Wade? Wow! I can think of dozens of players I would take over A.I. at this point in his career. And that is saying something considering I am a huge A.I. fan and a Georgetown University alumnus. I think we should just agree to disagree here, since it seems rather obvious at this juncture that neither is changing the other's opinion.

Before they got Miller, the Blazers would have been one of the best teams. He would have been a combo guard scoring and distributing alongside Roy. Also, he's the perfect teacher (except for the personality) for Bayless, because they have about the same skill-set.

He would be a good fit on any team with an SG or SF that handles the ball well. Cavs, Raptors, Blazers, Lakers. Problem is, all those teams already have established players in the backcourt and no room for AI. AI really needs to be more realistic and get used to coming off the bench. He can be a great sixth man for a team that needs scoring off the bench.

Minnesota, NY, Charlotte or Houston would all work for AI and would sell additional tickets in those towns.

Minnesota has the money(I would think or at least the MLE) and will need a perimeter scorer and the fans would get on board with another big name at least for a yr or 2.

He would also be a good replacement for Gordon in Chicago for a yr but Bulls fans will scoff at the idea because they have a hard on for D Wade since he bought a new home there.(I think he would buy a nicer pad than a 1.4 mil townhouse if he planned on making it longterm for himself).

Allen Iverson would be a great fit for the Charlotte Bobcats.

No...he'd ruin them. People automatically assume that because nobody on the Bobcats scored more than 17 PPG and we have Larry Brown who coached AI...that he would be the perfect fit. The Bobcats are all about the team game, on offense and defense. AI definitely isn't that type of player.

DitchDat
08-16-2009, 12:04 PM
Iverson needs to sign with a team that needs a high-scoring 2 guard/short-stretch point man.

1. New Jersey Nets. This team has some nice pieces, but it won't contend this year, as they are built for the free agent market of 2010.
PG - Devin Harris / Allen Iverson
SF - Jarvis Hayes / Najera / CDR
C - Brook Lopez / Battie / Williams
SG - Allen Iverson / Courtney Lee
PF - Jianlian / Boone / Battie

Knicks? No. Nate Robinson (5'9"), Duhon (6'1"), Iverson (6'0") would form arguably the worst defensive backcourt rotation in the NBA. Plus, Iverson and Larry Hughes on the same team = a lot of bad shots.

Sixers: it would be nice having him wrap up his career in Philly, and I think he would fit in pretty well. With Andre Miller gone, the Sixers could sure as hell use an established guard, even if he'll launch a million shots per game.
PG - Allen Iverson / Louis Williams / Jrue Holiday
SF - Thad Young / Kapono / Iguodala
C - Dalembert / Brezec / Speights
SG - Andre Iguodala (Iverson needs a big backcourt buddy) / Iverson / Kapono
PF - Elton Brand / Speights / Thad Young / Smith
It would leave them with a very small point guard combo in Iverson and up-in-ranks Lou Williams though. Adding Kapono also means that they already have a capable wing who is a much better shooter than Iverson is. And think of the damage AI will do with rookie point guard Jrue Holiday. They'll most likely pass.

Toronto: this one is easy. Bosh is probably gone after next year, so why not go all-in for Iverson on a one-year rental? With guys like Belinelli, DeRozan and Quincy Douby, a high-scoring 2 would be welcome I assume.
PG - Calderon / Ukic / Jarrett Jack
SF - Hedo / Antoine Wright
C - Bargnani / Rasho / Bosh / O'Bryant
SG - Iverson / Belinelli / Jarrett Jack
PF - Bosh / Reggie Evans

Charlotte Bobcats. Young team that needs scoring + playing for Larry Brown. This would pretty much be a good situation for Iverson.
PG - DJ Augustin / AI
SF - Gerald Wallace / Radmanovic
C - Tyson Chandler / Diop / Nazr Mohammed
SG -AI / Raja Bell
PF - Boris Diaw / Radmanovic

Miami: point-guard-to-complement-Dwayne-Wade-and-also-not-take-up-all-the-shots-for-Michael-Beasley-wise: Mario Chalmers > AI. Unless Iverson wants to come off the bench, which we all know he doesn't, this isn't gonna work.

Houston Rockets: Yao, McGrady and Artest are either out for the season, out until the All-Star break or traded. While the team is still talented and will still win games, there's no way in hell they are contenders next year. Maybe add Iverson to ease the pain?
PG - Aaron Brooks / Iverson / Kyle Lowry
SF - Ariza / Shane Battier / Brent Barry
C - Luis Scola / David Andersen / Dorsey
SG - Iverson / Ariza / Battier / Brent Barry
PF - Carl Landry / Luis Scola / Brian Cook / Dorsey
I think it will be a cold shower for Ariza. Sure, he made it to the $$$, but it's not like the Rockets are competing with the Lakers. Perfect team for Iverson to go all-out scoring-wise without any playoff culminations. Right up his alley.

Grizzlies: Grizz already have a high-scoring duo in Rudy Gay and OJ Mayo, with Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol and Mike Conley probably getting the leftover touches. Until league rules allow 2 or more balls on the court, AI would be a bad fit. Also, think of the damage he'll do to a clean, pass-happy guard like OJ Mayo. Oh wait, scratch that. Still a bad idea though.

Golden State Iverson, I mean, Warriors: High-paced offense and no-D: this must be Iverson's paradise. If they can get him, they probably should.
PG - Monta Ellis / Speedy Claxton / Acie Law / Stephen Curry
SF - Stephen Jackson / Corey Maggette / Devean George / Kelenna Azubuike / Anthony Morrow
C - Andris Biedrins / Brandan Wright / Ronny Turiaf
SG - Allen Iverson / Corey Maggete / Devean George / Kelenna Azubuike / Antony Morrow
PF - Ronny Turiaf / Anthony Randolph / Brandan Wright
I would propose a starting Speedy Claxton-Iverson backcourt. The other 29 NBA teams would too.

Clippers: a lot of rumors have gone around, but I don't see it. A BD-AI backcourt? I don't think these two chuckers could co-exist well. And where would Eric Gordon fit in? If AI doesn't want to come off the bench, this is a bad fit.

Nuggets: would be hysterical, but I don't think he's that much of a favorite there. Still, you have to admit this is a pretty sick lineup:
PG - Chauncey Billups / Anthony Carter / Lawson
SF - Carmelo Anthony / Balkman
C - Nene / Andersen
SG - Allen Iverson / JR Smith / Afflalo
PF - K-Mart / Andersen / Malik Allen

So I guess that's pretty much it. I'm more than confident he'll end up somehwere though.

Well you are just confirming my points, 10ppg wouldn't make them studs and AI could double that production easy (making him your new franchise player lol), by career-ending surgeries I mean surgeries that players usually don't bounce back from which Tmac has had and Yao will have, good to know that you guys are aware you're starting over again, because alot of guys are talking about how the Rockets are legit contenders, good to know some of you are realists.

Maybe to sell a few more tickets, but it wouldn't make up for the contract AI signs. He would not make the Rockets much better and probably would ruin the chemistry of the younger guys and take away playing time. Overall I think it is a bad idea for the Rockets to get Iverson.

what the hell are you smoking? yao ming is one of the few 20/10 guys in the league, he's already working out in a gym and will be cleared for 2010, while i may not disagree with your hate for tmac (dont really like him either) he's just a taller version of AI at this point, both guys need to shoot a bunch to hit their stats, to say TMAC didnt have good stats in houston 'EVEN WHEN HE WAS HEALTHY' is really a stupid comment made without looking at the numbers, add to that he's a top 5 scoring average guy ALL TIME in the NBA playoffs (yes i know he's failed to advance) im just trying to educate you since you like to ride AI"s dick like an ATL strip whore. what high horse? any sane level headed fan involved in the houston forum is prepared for a bumpy ride, who is screaming playoffs? nobody i know, and by the way as soon as we can clear those 24 MILLION off the books we can go buy us a sexy FA next year, right about the time yao comes back to assume his throne as best center in the league. get your **** together before posting dude, you make yourself sound like a douche with no facts correct.

It depends on what role he is willing to play... a lot of teams could use him if he is willing to anchor the second unit as a sixth man... while not being too vocal about playing time... or the number of shots coach is allowing him.

Looking at the numbers, these are Tmac's stats in Houston:

http://www.nba.com/playerfile/tracy_mcgrady/career_stats.html
These are AI's stats for the last 5 years:
2004-2005: 30.7ppg 4.0rpg 7.9apg 2.4spg 0.1bpg 42.4%FG 30.8%3PT 83.5%FT

Now you can compare any of these past 5 seasons and AI ousts Tmac in almost every way. Tmac was healthy in the 2004-05, 2006-07 and most of the 2007-08 season and all three of those seasons pale in comparison to any of AI's pre-Detroit seasons.

Yes Tmac is ranked 4th in scoring in the playoffs, playing only 38 games and never making it past the 1st round (which I know you mentioned), but what you forgot to mention is that he is 4th to Michael Jordan, ALLEN IVERSON and Jerry West. AI is ranked 2nd on the playoff scoring list and 5th on the regular season scoring list (where Tmac ranks 27th).
http://www.nba.com/statistics/encyc/Player.jsp
http://www.nba.com/statistics/default_all_time_leaders/AllTimeLeadersPPGQuery.html?topic=4&stat=0

Tmac maybe taller, but in no way is he the same as AI now. Tmac is finished, showing he has nothing left this season, he'll be lucky to avg 15ppg next season, whereas AI will likely be dropping 20+ easy.

In regards to Yao Ming:
Tom Clanton (Rockets Team Physician) said this about Yao's injury: “At this point, the injury has the potential for him missing this next season and could be career threatening,”
http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slug=aw-yaorockets062909
Yao is at risk for an extremely serious injury (possibly career-ending), so to believe he will bounce right back and "assume his throne as best center in the league" is just plain ignorant and silly. No way Yao will be the best center in the NBA ever again, not only because of his injury, but because Dwight is only 23, arguably already the best/2nd best center and still raw, only getting better and better, whilst Yao is on the speedy decline. Plus if Yao can't make a full turnaround then no big free agent will want to come to Houston in 2010, not saying they would even with Yao's return, but the Rockets should thank their gods if they can land AI for the year, this season the Rockets have nothing to look forward to and AI can atleast make the ride to 2010 and Yao's possible return entertaining.

Btw I backed everything I said up with solid facts so next time maybe you should "get your **** together before posting dude, you make yourself sound like a douche with no facts correct."

Who says that the written word is dying out, but seriously, I have no sympathy for Iverson. He could be a game changer for a contending team needing offense off the bench, but his ego is too big for that role, so he'll probably play in Memphis.

HATER'S DONT REPLY...Thats what happens when you expect to take over a team. Most contenders already have a good PG so why ruin a good thing? Therefore given his attitude plus the fact that AI does not/ REFUSES to come off the bench would scare any team.

Also I dont think theres anything wrong with the Bobcats or even the Knicks for that matter. I dont know what he expects in terms of salary but possible senario: Say AI signs with the Knicks for 2 years. I assume that would increase their chances of enticing a proper big name player to go there in 2010 making them instant potential contenders.

disagreed the question was not whether iverson is good or not it was speculation as to which team he would best fit.. the same can be said about any other name and it would not become a battle of fans vs. haters
