No he doesn't. Yeah he's made some dumb basketball decisions, but I tried to show in a thread over the summer how A.I. is a very misunderstood player, here:
Worst teammates in the history of the NBA
Allen could help any team in any reasonable role given to him, starting or coming off the bench. He even said as much in an interview (his notable quote of "Give me a role") done in recent years.
His gig in Memphis was just a bad situation from all angles, a move that should've never happend for both parties. Ditto his last time in Philly.
I think he's actually a more well rounded player than ever before, after spending time learning w/Beskitas in Turkey.
