Don't want him, never have never will. Interesting to see where he ends up though.

The TWolves will likely throw just about everything to get him and go hard for 2 or 3 years with him and KG.

I'd like to see him out West in a team like the Sonics. If they could trade everyone but Allen and Lewis (unlikely so Lewis would have to go), they could be real good.


I'll take a punt and say the Celtics get him and Ainge gives up Jefferson, Delonte and Wally. He'll throw in Ratliff for salary purposes but Wally and two of the young guys are certainties to go and I say do it because it doesn't look like the Celts will manage to win much with the team they've got and with so many young guys up for contract in one or two years, they will likely lose two or three anyway. Iverson, Pierce and Green would be a megaton trio in a year to two!

The warriors don't want him, so that leaves the Celts, Lakes, and Bulls with the resources to get him. I Kobe+AI or Bootleg kobe+AI would not be a good combo. However I do think this would be a good trade (I think Shaq/good team could make AI be less of a ball hog) - Kapono, Posey, Haslem, and Doleac for AI and Shavlik Randolph. Now the heat's lineup looks like
"PG" - AI
Sg - Wade
SF - Toine
PF - somebody lousy like shavlik randolph
C - Shaq in a few months

Call AI a ball hog all you want but he's never shot more than he had to. With good team mates he'd stop chuckiing as much, just like toine. These guys would win the east easily. Why would the sixers do this? Expirers. because of all the expirers the sixers would be trimming 11 million off of their contracts while the heat would be contending for the chip.

Of course this would never go down.

Yeah and even if it did Wade would play PG. His position is PG.

he plays 3/4 of his time at SG. Last year he played 90% of his time at SG. The season before that he played 90% of his time at SG.

He never played PG prior to the NBA either.

He is a shooting guard, always has been.

Another possible deal would be AI for Bracey Wright, Eddie Griffin, Rashad Mccants, Randy Foye, and ricky davis

G - AI
G - Mike James
F - Craig Smith
F - KG
C - Blunt

This team would basically become KG+AI+YWCA players instead of just KG+YWCA players. It would do well because KG and AI complement each other so well.

Well he is not "technically" a PG, which would go to Jason Williams. But the offense runs through him, and if Iverson comes it will still run through him. Whatever though, not an important thing to argue about.

ill take AI over BD any day of the week. Iverson gives his heart every game and plays like a Warriors. I love BD, but for a chance to get AI, ill take him.

BD and Murphy for AI and Iggy.

http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/t ... =20~20~9~9

it worked on the ESPN trade machine. It sounds lopsided but I would love to see it happen.

I disagree. they do that they make the playoffs and KG start trying hard again

They don't do that they miss the playoffs and KG demands a trade
