IVERSON EXPECTEDTO GET OFFERSFROMTHE KNICKS AND THE HEAT
Some Competition: Allen Iverson is expected to clear the NBA waiver process later today and a couple of
NBA teams have prepared offers for the soon-to-be free agent.
The New York Knicks are said to have the most to offer Iverson, mainly because he'll get exactly what he coveted from Memphis, which is the chance to play a ton of minutes as a starter.
The Knicks are a total mess and as one insider put it "the locker room is absolutely toxic" so adding Iverson cannot make the situation any worse. In fact a number of Knicks' players appear to have lobbied Knicks' president Donnie Walsh to consider the addition which has gotten the blessing of Knicks' head coach Mike D'Antoni.
The Miami HEAT have apparently also expressed some interest in Iverson, which is somewhat surprising considering how well the HEAT have played, but if the option is a lot of losing in New York or a strong playoff push in South Beach where do you think Iverson lands?
Knicks president Donnie Walsh downplayed that his team was the favorite, saying nothing was done, but it does seem Iverson has a few options on the table and these are only the ones we're hearing about, so stay tuned.
More as it develops.
iverson should go to the knicks like he should have in the first place. they arent going anywhere this year and its not like AI is going to hurt anything. the heat should definitely stay away though.
Off Topic but why when a reporter/blogger/writer writes an article and they mention the heat, they always capitalize HEAT? just wondering...
i never thought about it but thats true they do capitalize it
Oh, and for what is worth...No offer has been said, but "supposedly" Iverson himself said he'll sign with the Knicks
check out hoopshype(for the record) and a couple other sites saying from a very close source that its done deal from the knicks side..its only up to iverson if hes gonna sign
He'll get hurt again this guy is getting old he's logged a lot of minutes at too 34 & a half.
I don't understand the move are the Knicks having trouble selling tickets or something.
hurt again?..when is he not ever hurt..lol..he will play throguh the pain..if players can play through the pain of being a knick recently then he can play through whatever pain he has
I hope the Knicks add Iverson and then go deal to get Joe Alexander and Rubio
