Should the Knicks add....Allen Iverson?

I was looking on ESPNNEWS and they were talking Iverson. I teams looking at him were Memphis and Miami. the 1st thing that popped in my head was NY. Do you think he could be a good fit?

yeah

He's still a great player. He isn't the same type of player since his Philly days but this guy can still score 20 or more points a game. It's not like the Knicks are an established playoff team with a set core of players so yeah AI would help NY.

good pick up if the contract

good pick up if the contract is just for a year..that way they can stay competitive this year but after that it makes no sense since they are trying to save money for next year

yeah..doubt he takes that though..he wants nearing 9 mill to 10...reports are that hes most likely gonna go to the grizz because they will and can offer him more then other teams

Nate robinson is a good

Nate robinson is a good player on a bad team...Lee is looking more and more gone.

I would let nate walk.

Trade Lee and

sign Sessions or Iverson

Well...go on hoopsworld and read it. He wants 10-11 mil so either you guys are gonna pay him or a sign and trade looks likely

he is clearly a backup PG.

he is clearly a backup PG. The Knicks need a legit starting PG. Duhon is a good player but better off the bench.

I hope they add him. Walsh

I hope they add him. Walsh would be smart to add Rudy. I think he would start off the bench though because Hughes is still in NY

rudy is for real!!but the

rudy is for real!!but the rudy-lee trade it´s just a speculation,or did you guys read something?

i assume it´s not a real rumor,but make some sense for NY,they´ve get a great player with small salary so they don´t compromise the 2010 plan.

i see lee playing great minutes in portland but not much sense 10mill for lee,they´ve got needs in pg and a lot of players with rookie contracts and high salaries expected but if there,s an owner who puts the money it´s allen.

Iverson

If Iverson signs with New York, they will probably win a few more games, but unless they can get him for a short contract for cheap, he's not worth it, He'd fit in with D'Antoni's system, yes, but despite the fact the guy can still play a little bit if you put him on an unproven team that may struggle and not win a lot,i don't think his attitude would be the best

i wouldnt throw him in

i wouldnt throw him in because of odens history so far with injuries..he just seems to get injured every year including college so you need joel as insurance policy..

IVERSON TO NY

Iverson may not work anywhere,he needs to dominate the ball in order to feel apart of the team,the knick need legitimate improvement in order get free agents in 2010, they would be better off with Kidd. IVERSON is a team killer,a guard of his size can't carry a team,unless he's plays like chris paul that ain't happening

his teammates there never

his teammates there never said he was a cancer soooo where are u getting youre info from?..you talked to the players?..cuz they were quoted as saying he was a good teammate....or are u just guessing ?....knicks oden was thrown out there when he wasnt injuried..he tends to foul alot ..so the fact that he fouls and stays injured so far leads me to believe they wouldnt trade joel...plus joel is a very good defense of center which takes pressure off of lamarcus to be a great defender...im not sure what other free agent big man is out there that could replace joel...not including a rasheed wallace of course

Iverson to NY

Good fit, he'd score a ton. But business-wise not a good deal.

question define buisness

question define buisness wise because the team would definatly make money off of the jerseys and other things..iverson has proven that his stuff still sells...a one year deal for the right price works for them
