Iverson is unhappy..... after 1 game!

The locker room cancer is already appearing... LOL.

Quote:
Allen Iverson made his debut with the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday, and it went about as expected.

He spent much of the night on the sideline. And he wasn’t happy about it.

Nor, it seems, was his rear.

“I had a problem with my butt from sitting on the bench so long,” Iverson said. “That’s the only thing I had a problem with.”

Iverson made his first appearance in an NBA game since April 1, and not much had changed in the seven months in between. The Grizzlies brought him off the bench just like the Detroit Pistons tried to do, and Iverson didn’t like it. Not after watching the Grizzlies lose 127-116 in overtime to the lowly Sacramento Kings. Not after he played just 17 minutes – an effective 17 minutes in which he scored 11 points – and not after seeing his new team fall to 1-3 while he sat idly on the sideline.


Upon signing with the Grizzlies this summer, Iverson said he would have no problem coming off the bench – provided he was given a chance to compete for the starting job. That, however, was then. This is now. Iverson is a tremendous competitor and fiercely proud. Not even missing Memphis’ first three games – along with the entire preseason – with a hamstring injury seems to have tempered his distaste for bench work.

After the game, Iverson had no problem stating matter-of-factly and loudly – just so everyone in the locker room could hear, including starting guards Mike Conley and O.J. Mayo, who was seated next to him – that the Grizzlies would need to make a change if they continue to lose.

Specifically, they’d need to start him.


hahahahahahaahahah.... i need the AI supporters to come in here and defend him, because he's no cancer, no not at all.

every player in the league wants to play and win....
he's the only one being a vocal jackass about it.
the guy was injured all of preseason and the start of the season, and yet he has the balls to say he should be starting after the first game he's played all year? and he's still not 100% healthy.... wow. i can only imagine how much worse this is going to get after 10 games.

He said if they continue to lose he should start.

Iverson wanted to clarify that he wouldn’t complain if the Grizzlies were winning. But they didn’t, and they aren’t.

“If we’re winning, I can play 10 minutes and I’m happy,” he said. “When we’re losing, that’s when I trip out.”

If he wanted to win he wouldn't be in Memphis. I think he wants to log big minutes and pad his stats and now that he sees that's not going to happen he is whining.

This is the bullsh!t I hate. And we meet and play with these guys in real life as well.

Calling out your coach and proclaiming to know what is right for the team and putting down your teammates(by associated comments) is NOT being "competitive and proud"!!

It's being a sucky cancer that NO ONE wants around.

Grizz should cut him today and cut their losses. He will only get worse. He will be hanging with Marbury before Christmas. Book it.

it has more to do with playoff teams not wanting him
his mindset might have been to play on a bad team to get minutes and showcase for a playoff team or his last contract

iverson should just retire. No winning team is gonna give him the amount of shots he needs to keep his scoring average at 26 ppg, i'm not even sure losing teams are gonna do it any more. Clearly he's not gonna play a 10th man role on a contender to get a ring so just retire, keep that precious scoring average in tact nevermind the 42%,just hang em up. Or maybe be the first big nba name to sign in europe and continue the trend childress has set , probably get some good money

I saw a piece about him pre-game before the Memphis game. Or was it at the half? Anyway - the shots of him practicing before he was hurt were brutal. He looked absolutely miserable, like that was the last place he wanted to be - and I'm not just talking about practice.
