Where should he sign? Should he leave the NBA and retire? Play overseas in China or some other country?

What are some destinations he might consider?

He won't be in the NBA.


"We're very astonished, to say the least, that not one team has contacted us with any interest," Moore said. "I just don't understand it."

Riley should be able to sign him for 50 bucks, with a free parking pass as a signing bonus...

In reality though, he would get a lot more money and good publicity if he went and played overseas in China or Europe...

I want to see him in ATL.

It's his hometown, and they are still a playoff roster. I'm not sure Jordan C & Teague are ready for rotation minutes. And I think Bibby has less left in the tank than Iverson.

He should def sign with an Nba team..All he needs to to ball out for one full season with any team...and no complain about his role, mins or anything like that and next season (if there is one) there will be plently of contenders willing to sign him for their 6th man..

I think he may end up going to China. Marbury is already trying to recruit him. But in the NBA, the one team that stands out to me (if he's willing to take a bench role) is the Hornets. They lost Collison and I think he could still be a positive influence on CP3. As a young player you can never learn too much, and Iverson might be able to teach him or thing or 2. Not necessarily skill wise because they're 2 different types of players, but just some tips, and advice on the game.

I dont think that would even be worth it. He's hurt the clubhouse chemistry.

09-15-2010, 08:41 PM
If he still doesn't want a bench role, then China. He'd be happy with 45 PPG and an MVP over there.

If he is finally accepting his age, then I could see a number of teams go after him.

I'd like to see him back but he's black balled.

Seriously, though I can't believe the heat haven't even called.
You can easily pay AI the vet Min to attempt to beat out Chalmers for the starting spot.
OR Ai could be the 6th man for a team who has solid D but no offense off the pine.

It's not like Riley Wade and Lebron would let AI's "Ego" get out of hand.

09-15-2010, 10:46 PM
Ai should sign witth somebody who wants him and where he can be a star at and prove to all the teams that shut the door in his face he can still do you this my guy ai

How good would he be on the Celtics. Can you imagine having AI coming in to back-up Rondo / Allen instead of Nate or Delonte. I don't see it happening now, but it would be electric.

He would also help Celtics keep their average age at 85.

nate can do virtually everything that iverson can do at this point in his career. (arguably more)

Jameer Nelson is a very poor mans Allen Iverson. Po'. He's a homeless mans AI. Why not go get the Answer.

AI needs big men that dont look to score alot. Look what he did with Mutumbo, Ratlif and Mat Fricken Geiger. Iverson and Howard together is a big 3 on their own. I know he's not the same Iverson as 10 years ago but in his last full season, 2008, he averaged 26 ppg, 7ass, and 2 steals. Thats two years ago.

Imagine how frustrating it must have been for him to come off the bench for Mike Conley. WTF? People are telling him he has to come off the bench and earn his spot. Wtf has Mike Conley done to earn his spot? He's been more of a disappointment than his old team mate at Ohio. I wont even get into the Detroit mess.

Magic should go get him and try and trade VC to fill in the gaps. They need a scorer and that is exactly what AI is. Plus he's got enough heart to donate some to Vince if they keep him.

He would be a nice player to bring off the bench for instant offense. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like he'll accept that role. Have fun in China, AI.

This was played at his 1st game back as a Sixer last season.

Now, go ahead bash away. But nobody ever seems to take into account AI's intangibles. He's one of the greatest of all time, a league MVP, a future HOF'er and one of the most real athletes in history. AI is who he is, and outsiders just don't understand him. But for the people who got to know him on and off the court for 10+ years, we love him.

I know that this is opening the door for a lot of people who dislike AI because he's a "ballhog", or because he has cornrows and tattoos, etc... I don't really care, because I've heard it all. And it's all ********.

I've argued every possible way in AI's defense, and enough is enough. I'm getting this off my chest for the last time, because I'm done arguing with the same people who continually bash AI. And my favorite part about these people, is that any thread with Ai mentioned, their response is usually something along the lines of "Ai sucks" or "He's horrible". Wow, you just had to throw that in there, huh? Good argument btw. Yep, with everything he's accomplished, he's still just a terrible player.

Players like Durant & Rose are exactly what the NBA needs right now. True loyalty, dedication to the game, the will to win (and win the right way). They're the real anti-LeBrons.

If he sign's for a team by training camp (unlikely) and has a full pre-season i think he could put up decent numbers still. 15ppg, 2.5rpg, 6apg. But he has to accept his role first

^ he dont need to cuz he aint over rated like some other player i know. There is no reason he had to go and do that, but ya, idc anyway cuz now a lot more people hate him cuz of it. there are like 3 people that are always in the AI threads that you can tell are haters ha, pretty sure your one of them. its all good tho, im an LBJ hater, always have been.. guess what tho.. I DONT GO IN THREADS WHERE HE IS THE TOPIC cuz i know itll end bad.

As for the Kings, that could be a ggood place too, i never thought of that, they got Evans, Boogie, Dalembert, Landy, Casspi. ya that could work out good
