i hope he doesnt go to the knicks, ive always loved ai.. id rather he goes to a playoff team, preferably in the east so theres the chance that he will ruin them haha. i think he'd fit in really well with the jazz or suns or maybe even toronto. on any of those teams he'd be surrounded by a great distributing pg, have a big scorer in the post, and still be able to be a starting sg

TO would've been a great situation for him, but Colangelo already said that he wouldn't touch him.

He will thrive in NY's run-and-gun style of play.

Great for NY, and great for the NBA and Mr. Stern with the jersey sales. Knicks on the front, and Iverson on the back. dang!

oh and btw, i hate it when an OP will put the website, but not the actual story.


Story:

Can Allen Iverson save the Knicks' season, rescue them at the box office or at least make them relevant again?

Donnie Walsh will spend the next 48 hours debating what impact, both negative and positive, Iverson could have on the organization. Walsh, the Knicks' president, confirmed last night that the club will explore the possibility of signing Iverson, the former league MVP who was placed on waivers Tuesday by the Memphis Grizzlies.

"We'll look into it," Walsh told the Daily News. "Right now, I'd say probably not but we'll see."

A source close to Iverson says he'd be eager to play in Mike D'Antoni's up-tempo system. Iverson had similar interest over the summer but the Knicks passed. But with the team off to its worst 10-game start in franchise history, Walsh may have a change of heart.

Iverson, 34, would generate much-needed buzz for the 1-9 Knicks, who are in desperate need of a proven scorer and marquee name.

But Walsh and D'Antoni will have to consider if adding another veteran is right for the Knicks, who are in a rebuilding mode. Iverson's presence could hinder, not help, the development of .Danilo Gallinari and rookie point guard Toney Douglas. Moreover, Iverson has made it known that he still considers himself a starter.

The Knicks have an available roster spot to sign Iverson when he becomes an unrestricted free agent tomorrow. Iverson, a 10-time All-Star, can play either guard position but the Knicks would likely make another move if Iverson signed since there wouldn't be enough playing time for Chris Duhon, Larry Hughes, Nate Robinson and Douglas. All with the exception of Douglas are in the last year of their contracts.

The most plausible scenario would be the Knicks negotiating a buyout with Hughes. The veteran guard told The News that he addressed his status with management before the season and whether he'd play much. Hughes admitted that if he weren't factoring into the team's plans, the two sides were prepared to discuss a buyout. But since being benched for the first two games, Hughes has become a regular in D'Antoni's rotation.

If Iverson can't land a deal with the Knicks, there is a chance he would consider waiting a few months, then try to sign with a contending team.

Iverson signed an incentive-filled one-year deal with the .Grizzlies in September but was unhappy with his limited role.

He missed the Grizzlies' first three games with a hamstring injury and played in just three others. Iverson averaged 12.3 points, 3.7 assists and played just 22 minutes per game. He then left the team, citing personal reasons, and hinted he might retire.

"The Grizzlies and Allen Iverson have come to a mutual agreement that because of personal matters that forced him to leave the team on Nov. 7, Allen will step away from the game at this time," Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace said in a statement. "As a result, we will be ending our contractual agreement with Allen, which will allow both parties to move forward. We wish Allen the best."

I want to see him in a Philly uniform, but I guess NY is his only shot.

11-17-2009, 01:10 AM
I know everyone pretty much hates Iverson right now, but I really feel he will do well in NY.

I'm not sure how the team will do as a whole, but I do know that they will sell more tickets if AI is starting. MSG is probably pretty much sold out every game anyways, but if not, they will sell a bit more.

Iverson can still drop 25 on any given night if given the minutes and shots. In Dantoni's system, he will be asked to jack up as many shots as he wants, so it will be to his benefit.

If this doesn't work out, I will be very surprised. Duhon is already one of the worst if not the worst starting PG in the league. He is better suited coming off the bench anyways.

Whatever, all I know is there will be a lot of media coverage on its way, so get used to hearing about AI every damn morning haha. Sorry for the people that are already sick of him. :(

11-17-2009, 01:12 AM
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

There is a God!! I was saying this all summer!!! He shoulda signed his one year contract with NY in the summer. The only downfall about this is that now everyone who doesnt hop right back on AI's dick will say his stats are a product of D'Antonis system. I fully understand the D'antoni effect but NY is a great fit for his skill set (ya even his old ***) and he will show why he shouldnt be coming of the bench for Micheal flucking! Conley.

AI has not been swallowing vasilene or crying to love songs... he is pissed that he has to come off the bench for a player he is much much much better than(and could learn something backing up AI) for a team that is losing. Give the man the ball and let him play. He took a **** team to the NBA finals but they let him do his thang. NY will let him run wild. Man... i cant wait.

Most likely will sign with the Bobcats. I could see them using a small lineup.

Felton
Iverson
Wallace
Diaw
Chandler

Jackson off the bench or switch it up.

NY NY NY have you learned nothing? You need to go into this knowing you'll start him and give him 30+ min a game or else the cancer will spread. I know if any system was truly meant for him its with D'antoni.

I cannot see this resulting in anything but regression on a team basis and a lack of chemistry at the end of the year. Good luck Knickerbockers.

11-17-2009, 02:01 AM
If Iverson wants to win, he should sign with the Cavs. Heck, they almost traded for Stephen Jackson so AI can't be worse than that guy.

He also would fit in well with Chicago since they need a pure scorer on their roster.

Third option for him would be Miami. They wanted him in the summer before they turned their focus on to Lamar Odom. If AI starts at PG, it would still work since D Wade is the main ball handler/distributor.

I truly believe he can still contribute at a high level, as a pure scorer. He won't need to run the offense or carry any of the above teams but will still be on a team that wins.

Yo if thats your attitude and you will stick by that til the end of the season, why not do it. Stick him in your starting lineup and let the fun begin. Hughes could be traded and yield a nice young player and AI could start and get back to 20+ ppg - if you commit him to 30+ min and 18-24 shots.

Signing Allen Iverson to any team these days is a bone head move. Were not talking about signing some talented guy whose coming back from a long vacation, were not talking about some guy who maybe too old, and were not talking about a guy who is coming back from a serious injury. Were talking about Allen Iverson, A.I, a man in his own category. Signing A.I to any team is a bone head move, but if the knicks do it, it would be almost as bad as signing Isiah Thomas to Head Coach. Allen Iverson was never much of a winner, but what he lacked in his determination throughout the entire season he made up for bundles and bundles of talent. Yet hes not the same allen no more, hes slower he cant jump as high and he surely cannot score as much. So you wanna sign a player who will be asking for a Sh** load of money who wont come to much practices, hardly will care to win a game, doesnt have the same skills he use to, and a head case and cancer in the locker room. I dont know, it wouldnt shock me. Plus the coach down there has his head in the right place, but signing Allen Iverson would just ruin the team and what he has done to build it back to an actually worth watching team (last season, give him time for this season). But Go ahead and sign A.I knicks cause ull be in the headlines twice this season. 1 for signing A.I and 2 for dropping him at the end of the season cause of all the cra* he brings...

Hes not a winner, the closest he has ever come to winning was as close as Lebron has so far. And thats throughout his entire career

What are you TALKING ABOUT?!?!?! This dude won in college, won in the pro's! His squads were terrible in Philly and he MADE them better. Last time I checked but the Pistons are still struggling after he left. Denver wasn't about him not being able to play but just not being a GREAT fit. They needed more passer less scorer.

WE the Knicks NEED his style of play. If anything I'm mad at Walsh for not doing this in the offseason and waiting until we blew first 10 games b4 admitting his mistake.

WE NEED A LEADER, WE NEED A SCORING POINT GUARD, WE NEED ALLEN IVERSON
please WALSH get him, Toney D will develop in time, but most people dont realize is that with Duhon as TD role model there is nothing much for him to learn cause duhon has no heart or balls to play. With AI TD could learn from a possible future hall of famer. Especailly being that they both have the similar play ethic early in there respective careers.
WE need a person to handle the ball, give it to the right person/ or drive to the F*in hole. DUHON dont do that, he passes to DLEE on a pick, or gets the ball stripped or turns it over. We need a person who is going to have a in-game huddle and say lets go F*in win this game.

Bless your hearts, Knicks fans! I know exactly how you feel right now......believe me, I know. You may want him now, and to be honest, I don't think he'll hurt your team too much, but if he doesn't get what he wants..he'll get hurt; he'll become more involved in personal problems(these most recent WERE apparently real, but conveniently timed); he'll find something to complain about and you might be the team that gets stuck with him. Right now, the Grizzlies will only improve from the 8 game deficit that he helped to create. We have 70+ games to get better. What will you have by mid April???
I'm sorry for AI; but as multiple posters have written; it's no longer 2001 but 2010 nearly, and AI's head might well be stuck in the past.

You may want him now, and to be honest, I don't think he'll hurt your team too much, but if he doesn't get what he wants..he'll get hurt; he'll become more involved in personal problems(these most recent WERE apparently real, but conveniently timed); he'll find something to complain about and you might be the team that gets stuck with him. Right now, the Grizzlies will only improve from the 8 game deficit that he helped to create. We have 70+ games to get better. What will you have by mid April???
I'm sorry for AI; but as multiple posters have written; it's no longer 2001 but 2010 nearly, and AI's head might well be stuck in the past.

well the knicks have nothing to lose..... NOTHING.....

the knicks are unlike all 29 other NBA teams....... the crappy teams in the NBA are either developing talent and or tanking to get a draft pick

the middle and elite teams are trying to get better.

the knicks? we're just waiting for 2010 and we have NO DRAFT PICK to tank for 2010 ..........

so AI will give us a bit of buzz until then!

With a 1-9 record, what does NY have to lose? worst-case scenario, people actually start talking about the Knicks again, so what?
