If Iverson were to pull a lebron/Durant and go to the team of his choice to stop the lakers after the LA beat down what would have been the ideal situation for his skill set to beat that lakers team?

I think if he went to a team like the Pacers as a ring chaser they would have done it.

AI
Reggie
Artest
Jermaine O'Neal
Brad Miller

Still left that team Mercer, Tinsley, and Tim Hardaway on the bench. Depth like Jeff Foster, Strickland.

What that is for AI is a team of off-ball shooters around him. He can take the ball and be that on ball guy he was, and be a PG much like Curry.

None. Hes not a championship archetype. Wouldn't change his game enough

Had he wanted a ring he'd have had to pull a KD and go to the Lakers.

KD would never come off the bench for a title. Thats AI's best hope

Neither would AI, but that selfishness was why he never has a ring so I guess props to KD in that regard lol

Even if you put AI on the '02 Kings they would've lost to the Lakers. Maybe he would've had a fit on the Spurs from the early 00's (we forget that they weren't exactly guard heavy at that point, their '00-'01 team split starting backcourt duties between Antonio Daniels, Danny Ferry, Terry Porter, Avery Johnson and Sean Elliot. '01-'02 Was rookie Tony Parker and 32-year-old Steve Smith). So maybe Popovich could've used him in a way that didn't mess with the rest of the team, but honestly I don't think there's a team you could've put Iverson on at that point that he beats the Lakers.

Kings were robbed in 02... they probably would have beaten the Lakers. I would have liked to see KG with AI.
