My god.
Some of you guys have to relax.

It's been two measly games! How can you POSSIBLY tell if this deal was a bad one or not?
By no means am I an AI fanboy, but I hate how people have the tendency to make up assumptions based on a very small sample.

They lost to NJ, but seeing how Detriot plays in a very structured offensive and defensive system, it was a given that they would probably lose in IVERSON'S FIRST GAME with the team (no practice time for him either). Their second loss was against the defending champions the Boston Celtics, and 28 other teams could have just as easily lost to them too (including the Nuggets with Billups).

Detriot needed someone who could create his own shot and was a prolific scorer. Although Billups fits that bill to a certain extent, Iverson is the type of player they were looking for.
