As good as everyone portrays AI...He has only taken the sixers to the finals only to get spanked by the lakers... If he could not win with his team in the WEAK EAST, what makes you guys think he will do anything in the WILDWEST. If you seriously looked at this as being fact it would be horrible for the warriors... you would trade a bigman that hasen't shown you a lot yet but promise here and there... and your so called corner stone of your team... for a player who dosn't play team concept, goes but his own rules, dosn't practice, A HEAD CASE and hasn't had the best past compared to the rest of the players in the warriors.. PLUS we already have 5-6 guards already.. what we need are more big men to contend in the BIG west..:upset:
I don't see your point here, Sixers went to the Finals and got spanked by the Lakers, who hasn't? That year they showed they were the top team in the East, and Allen Iverson on the Warriors would turn things around, but I doubt it'd help them be a playoff force unless they put good roleplayers around him. Like him or not, disagree with his public rap sheet or not, but you have to notice what he's got done during his time in the L.
It's almost apparent that when/if the Sixers trade Iverson they won't get equal value so this trade sounds very possible. But to make salaries work, they might have to throw someone else in on the Sixers side. Unless the deal took place now.
But even removing Jamison and Troy Murphy, all the Warriors would be left with is SGs and SFs. They are the proof at taking the best player, over need position, is the wrong move. They draft Dunleavy, only to move Jamison from his position. They draft Arenas only to move him from his position. They draft Jason Richardson, only to move Larry Hughes to point guard?
What's up with that?
