Default Allen Iverson?

Should teams that desperately need some pg depth take a chance on the once dominate A.I? why or why not? discuss.....

Because he won't come off the bench he's got a massive ego.

I'm dying to see him come back though. I still think he has a lot in the tank. Damn his damn brain.

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.

If he could start here as a SG I'd do it. DeRozan could learn a lot from A.I.... plus if we lose a lot who gives a fuck, we're going for a #1 pick anyways.

It's one thing for an organization to show desparation, but once you are willing to invite dysfunction....You'd be putting yourself in NY Knicks - Isiah Thomas territory.

+1 atleast we'd have some novelty to fill some seats. Also I'm sick of Demar auto starting. Does anyone really think this organization is taken seriously around the league anyway?

He has a hissy-fit, plays 3 games then hurts his back, then has another hissy-fit and quits the team. You guys might be losing games, but you're not quitting them.

I've seen a few media reports of him having some financial problems? If so, I wouldn't be surprised to see him try to make a comeback a la Antoine Walker
