ok, now that the harrington mess is over, we can go after someone good. lets trade to get AI. We have the tools, AI is always TOPS in points. Sure, he might hurt team chemistry and take over the team. But if that means getting to the playoffs, im all for it.

Warriors have denied going after AI, but that was before Harrington signed with the Pacers.

so get r' done mully

Iverson is a great player but he would likely not make the team any better than it is now!

Yeah, it could be trick the get more on a trade. But, this time, I believe it. I don't think they're getting the offers they thought they would get, and so, have decided against trading him.

Could be a ploy to get teams to try harder and offer more for him

That's because he couldn't get equal value back for him. Everyone out there knows Iverson is team poison, so they offered crap for him. Iverson is worth more to King on the 76ers than what he could get for him in return (and believe me, he's tried all summer). That's the only reason Billy's trying to save face and pretend that Iverson being in Philly's training camp is his decision.

I don't trust GMs! He might still try to get rid of Iverson

i think kupchak said shaq was staying, few weeks later he got traded to the heat
orlando said they wanted to work things out with francis, soon he got traded.
they even said baron wasnt going anywhere, then he gets traded here.

It's a technique.

After you leave players on the block for a while, you acknowledge that all the offers you got were garbage and now you aren't willing to give your player away anymore... and, usually, some better trades come sailing in because the other GM's realize now that you won't settle for trash just because a player's on the block. It's like telling the other teams, "Screw this idea, than. I don't have to trade my star... and I'm not gonna trade him unless you guys start giving me some real proposals." Once people know you're serious, they'll stop trying to take advantage.

i think they said philly wouldve ended up with the #7 pick (foye) gerald green and boozer. i think utah pulled out at the last minute and everything fell apart.

How the hell did Philly almost swing a deal for Gerald Green, Boozer, AND the #7 pick...?!

How many GMs sobered up before pulling out on that one??

I wonder who would Utah got in that scenario. It seems clear that Iverson would have gone to Boston... or not?. It would be interesting watching AI trying to live in Salt Lake City.
