You will inevitably question why the Clippers are chasing Allen Iverson
and how they plan to fit him into their backcourt rotation when they
already have Baron Davis and Eric Gordon.
Answer: Selling tickets is a huge part of it, just like in Memphis with the Grizzlies’ interest in AI.
The Clippers’ future was on display Monday night, in front of NBA Commissioner David Stern, team owner Donald Sterling, General Manager and Coach Mike Dunleavy and veteran Marcus Camby.
Several NBA sources have confirmed to me that controversial and wildly popular guard Allen Iverson – through representatives – has made the Grizzlies aware that he would like to play in Memphis.
The Charlotte Bobcats have an owner who’s losing millions and looking
to sell. They’ve struggled to move tickets, win games and become
relevant in a town that used to adore the NBA.
Allen Iverson could change that. Pair the polarizing guard with coach
Larry Brown again and they wouldn’t just be talking about games in
Charlotte, they’d be talking about practice, too.
Sam Smith of Bulls.com reports that
Carlos Boozer said on the Jim Rome ESPN radio show he hasn’t decided whether to opt out from his contract with more than $12 million remaining. He had said earlier this year he planned to opt out. Boozer supposedly had been indicating he has a free agent promise from Detroit or New Jersey.
Mlive.com is reporting that Allen Iverson could be Charlotte bound this
offseason. It is rumored that he will reunite with Larry Brown who used to
coach Iverson in Philly, who now coaches the Bobcats.
The Toronto Sun is reporting that A.I.’s poor attitude will most likely cost him in the
pocket this summer when trying to find a new team to play with next year.
