"Let's be serious." general manager Chris Wallace said in a statement. "We signed Iverson to boost some ticket sales and had no hope of him realistically contributing to this team in a positive fashion.". "Well, no one else in the league was going to sign me", Iverson replied "and I figured they wouldn't keep me more than a week, so why not collect the $1 million?" Iverson replied. [/fake quote]
The Bulls aren't interested in Iverson. No, no one's told me that. I just used some common sense.
They're a team built on chemistry, team work, and defense. Even though the offense is woeful, there's no way Iverson comes in and helps out. He'll kill the defense, kill the chemistry, and then get kicked off the team.
Some Bulls fans pine for what Iverson used to be and will surely want to give him a shot. Iverson was a warrior back in the day, and I don't want to gloss over that as if the guy's a complete loser who could never accomplish anything.
However, his skills have declined, but his appreciation of them hasn't. He played a game in Memphis before bitching about rebuilding and coming off the bench. What'd you expect Allen?
Anyway, good luck to Iverson, I assume you'll be in the basketball hall of fame someday [if they run of college coaches], but I hope a stop in Chicago isn't in the cards before then.
