Heat Miami interested in AI

Quote:
The Miami Heat could still add free agent Allen Iverson.

According to a source close to Iverson, Pat Riley reached out recently to let him know that the Heat "has continued interest in (Iverson's) services" and also that Miami "could be a great opportunity for us."

In addition to the Heat, Iverson had received at least some level of interest from the L.A. Clippers, New York Knicks and Memphis Grizzlies.

According to the source, the Heat has not yet made a concrete offer to Iverson.

Riley, according to the source, also asked that "before (Iverson) considers accepting any (other) offer, to please get back with him."

But they already have D-Wade playing the 2. What is his role? Point guard? Off the bench? I doubt he'd come off the bench behind D-Wade. He'd only see like 10 minutes of floor time.

We should merge this with the original.
ah who cares.

Let AI go to Miami so he can utterly destroy the team and make more reason for Bosh not to go to the Heat.

What chemistry?
it was Wade dominating the ball the whole time.

Who hasn't Miami been interested in this offseason? And who hasn't been interested in AI this offseason?

Cheers,

wouldnt he overlap with D-Wade, I mean after all they are both superb guards, and one of them has to sacrifice (that's probably be AI in my opinion)

Iverson has to back up, it's Wade's team and Wade is doing things Iverson...use to.

YES, then Wade will bolt, and we will somehow snag him in 2010

hmm. It's always nice to imagine. Though Wade is almost as unlikely to come here as we are to trading Banks.

Not a fan of AI to Miami. 2 ball dominating G's in the backcourt could mean less touches inside. Reminds me of AI/Melo in Denver. A good reg season team, but a 1st/2nd rd exit playoff team.

If this team has any chemistry, then it will be gone before training camp if this deal were to happen. AI+Wade=headaches for Spoelstra, unless he can change the rules to allow two basketballs on the court at the same time.

I dunno, let AI come on when Wade is cold?
it could work, sorta:

AI 22 ppg + Wade 35 ppg = 57 points from the duo
Then we add in Beasley, Dequan Cook, Mario Chalmers, MAYBE JO and Haslem?
Good offensive team there, won't go anywhere but it gives wade a little help.

But it works in THEORY

Bad idea. AI thinks that just because he is a future hall of famer that he is the focus of any and every team in his radar. AI will think he has to score and Wade will know he has to score. This leads to an ugly situation just like AI and Carmelo on the Nuggets.
