Should AI who will receive a pay cut no matter what go to the Lakers to get himself a ring and help gain more interests in him?

After last year with Detroit, his stock has dropped but he still has a great game when healthy. I see him still able to put up 25 to 30 points in the right system. He probably will only make 6 million at the most for this season so why not take 2 million or close to it and sign with Lakers and get a ring.

Clever Idea but No. Iverson

Clever Idea but No. Iverson wont really gain alot doing that.

He wont show he's still a #1 or #2 option because he would be the #4 option...maybe off the bench.

Phil will start Fish over A.I

Nope

Didn't work for Payton and Malone, won't work for Iverson. And yeah Fisher is a Jackson type player not A.I.

2 words : Track

2 words : Track Record

Iverson is looked at as a Scapegoat for the down season in Detroit......

He is looked at as the "old NBA" where 1 player was the Franchise...

Artest wants to win so his

Artest wants to win so his ego will not be a problem and he could come off the bench for that. Kobe would and the other veterans would keep AI in check. Also as AI is getting older, I think he has mature enough to not shoot himself in the foot so to speak. Also AI was never a good fit for the Detroit Piston. Their style would never mesh. I knew this before the trade. Stuckney was being compare to Billups who is a vet and he kinda underachieved because of it, Also Hamilton did not play hard because he was pissed off that he got tricked into thinking Billups would be back. I was kinda like what happened to Jermaine O'neal when he sign up and they wait to fire Issaih Thomas late because O'neal was a big Thomas supporter. That kind of shadyness can upset you. There were a lot of factors that cause the Detroit Piston to fall and AI was a scapegoat. He would have put up decent numbers for Denver had he not gotten traded. I think it will be a smart move. He could go to Miami but I believe that Miami would not do it because Beastly is you and you may not want AI around a young talented player that likes to party.

Artest will be ok in LA

Artest will be ok in LA because Phil, Kobe, and the other Laker vets can reign one player in if he gets out of line. It would a lot more difficult to have two stray players.

AI

With Artest and Kobe would never work. I think the personalities would clash. I don't think there is enough basketballs to go around.

I don't think A.I. in L.A.

I don't think A.I. in L.A. would work either. I mean not one of those guys plays great without the ball in there hands and the triangle offense is really built around player movement with A.I. you would have three iso players trying to each run the offense and who is your catch and shoot guy with Iverson Kobe Artest Gasol and Bynum.
