Goodbye Iverson

untitled.bmp

The Allen Iverson legacy is over. He has been traded to Denver for Andre Miller, Joe Smith, and two 2007 first-round picks. I feel a emptiness inside because I love Iverson, but I too think its time for him to move on. He won’t get a ring with the team here in Philly and I do think he deserves at least one. He is the T.O. of basketball so I can’t wait to see the trouble he gets into over there.

    C’mon, give the guy some credit. Iverson’s overly intense at times but he cares foremost about winning, not looking good/getting touches like TO. On the Sixers, there was never a second option — Keith Van Horn was considered their number 2 scorer for a few years — and with the Nuggets I’m sure he’ll be happy scoring 20 instead of 30 pts a night because they’ll be winning.

    I didn’t think it was time for AI to leave, but after seeing the way the Sixers treated him in the end I hope is on to way better things with the Nuggets. It will be interesting to see how this town responds to the 6ers sans AI–I couldn’t give 2 craps about them. Frankly when watching sports news I’m watching to see how the Nuggets are doing.
