Well it is SAS, and it is his twitter feed no less. I'm reserving judgment until a legit word gets out.

I don't know the connection. I think it's strange the AI gave the scoop to SAS.

its a shame really.
i wonder why new yoork or some crappy team didnt get him? like i understand he ruins chemistry, but how much chemistry can you have from losing so much? i can understand that with winning teams. i think kenny smith made this point anyways. oh well.

He still has too much left in him to retire. He can average 15ppg + respectively on any team still.

Answer me this: How bad does Iverson want it? - NBA News - FOX Sports on MSN


Quote:
Most of all, Iverson is walking away, hoping some NBA team will say, "Please, come back!"
Quote:
"I think he just wants to feel wanted again," one of Iverson's confidants told me Wednesday night.

That's a tough sell in and of itself.

It was bad enough that Denver looked better from the moment it traded him for Chauncey Billups, who ultimately led the Nuggets to the Western Conference finals. But it became worse once Iverson arrived in Detroit, got injured, said he'd rather retire than come off the bench and alienated first-year coach Michael Curry, who was subsequently fired once the 2008-2009 season expired.

Things didn't get any better for Iverson, who kept saying he was about "winning" but inexplicably signed with the Memphis Grizzlies. Then he never played in the preseason and complained about playing time his very first game, ultimately lasting just three games before being waived.

The woeful New York Knicks were supposed to be the next option. At 2-9 at the time, with concession workers considered just as viable a box-office option as the players, Iverson believed he could end up playing for coach Mike D'Antoni. That was before team president Donnie Walsh nixed that scenario, claiming "chemistry" would be disrupted. And when the Cavs or the Spurs were broached, the immediate reaction league-wide was, "Why would they want Iverson?"

I've known Iverson for 14 years now. To know him is to know he's severely hurt by the lack of affection thrown in his direction these days. When Iverson scours the league, he sees inferior talent, guys who can't touch him, and nothing to prevent him from averaging 20 points a night.

The thing is, hurt shouldn't be the feeling he's displaying at this moment in time; Humility would be more apropos.

he'll play on the first team that allows him to get up his 25 shots a night so he can maintain his career average. Of course this will be a piss poor team with no chance at winning a ring
