This reminds me a lot of the Manny Ramirez saga in Boston. Every year we hear Manny will be traded and it never happens. I believe the same will hold true for Iverson.

Nope, he will be traded, there aint no goin back now after everything that has happened in the past week, looks like Denver, Minn., and Boston are the most intrested teams, AI will always be my favorite player no matter where he ends up and I hope that he gets a ring because he deserves one.

there are 100 million rumors out there right now, the latest one is AI to the warriors for B-Davis and Biedrins (which I would be very happy with) and then on the Sixers pre-game show Stephen A was talking about a deal between LAC/Philly/Sacramento could go down with Maggs, Livingston, Bibby, and AI all being swapped not counting all the fillers and stuff.

He actually tried to suggest that Livingston would end up in Sacramento with Iverson. So the 76ers would basically be taking Maggette + fillers. Which makes no sense at all for any of the teams involved.

seems like the celtics are dropping out which is what Ainge said earlier today.

basically nobody knows anything at this point, I really hope that a deal gets done soon..

Just heard another rumor on sports network that AI might be going to Miami they are still working out a deal.

Philly Minnesota and Chicago in a 3 team deal and Minnesota winds up with AI, Chi gets McCants and Griffin and DPs and Philly gets Nocioni, Deng, and DPs.

yep, I heard about the Miami one with J-Williams, Antoine Walker, and Posey in a 3 team trade.

It's getting ridiculous

I know I don't follow the NBA as much as I used to, but who is Ofakro??

There are many "rumors", but not too many title contending teams are showing interest in A.I.
I was kinda hoping to see him and Paul Pierce running and gunning, but the C's would have to give up most of their youth and a pick just to get him. I'm not too sure if it's worth it.

The salary cap is the main stumbling block- nearly any team who's a CONTENDER which is AI's main issue, also has big payroll... and trying to involve a third team to do a deal is like trying to deal with the Yankees with the blessing of the Theo Epstein. I'd just like to see him playing again. Oh, and Okafro is Okafor (typo).

jeremy17
12-14-2006, 06:24 PM
yeh sorry about the typo is actually okafor.He was the rookie of the year in the 04-05 class really good defensive player can play offense too and just a nice big young guy for any team.kinda reminds me of dwight howard of the magic with the style of play okafor plays with.

miami can't get rid of walker obecause that will hurt them bad however getting rid of williams plus wright and 1 other would'nt be too bad.

I tell you I wouldn't be surprised at all if he isn't traded, or at least drags on like the Artest situation did. Philly is not going to trade AI just to trade him but at the same time teams are not willing to give up young players when its already been determined that AI will be moved.

They have been trying to get rid of walkers contract for sometime now,He is just not producing.
He must be in one hell of a slump LOL.

You can thank the media for a good portion of that. It seems networks like ESPN spend more time discussing off the field crap than the games themselves.

I agree with you 100%

And to answer your question spydermat the Nuggets "supposedly" are very close to finalizing a deal and all they need is a 3rd team to take Nene.

I hope Miami doesn't trade away a 3rd of the team just to get Iverson. I'm sure he'll help and it'll be cool to see wade and iverson score 30 points each lol. But getting rid of core players that help every night can be worse in the end if the rest of the team sucks.

I don't ever see how Iverson, Wade, and Shaq could play on the same team. There just wouldn't be enough basketballs to go around. You're talking about 3 of the biggest stars in the sport, and two of the biggest egos in Iverson and Shaq.

idk who they should send him to. any team would have to change their entire gameplan to revolve around him, and he would not work well with another big star. everyone knows he's great, but who's going to successfully trade for him without changing their entire gameplan? it's going to be a very interesting outcome, and probably complicated.

Bonds_25

I think Minnesota would be a nice fit for AI. Garnett has never been a 20-25 shot per game type of guy. He simply will not allow himself to dominate a game. He's always wanted that second star around him and Marbury was the closest thing he has ever had to it.

i agree i think he'll be good with KG

I think... even though i dont want to see it... he would be a good fit on the pacers... if they trade Stephen Jackson and Jamaal Tinsley they would clear out some space for him.... The only problem would be with the salary issues but with JO and AI.. that could be a great combo IMO

I agree 100%. AI will always be my fav. Even though I'm a huge Amare fan. AI does deserve a ring. He is one of the greatest players ever. He WILL be traded. He demanded one.
