As you all know, Allen Iverson is still searching for a team. But most teams cannot afford him, or do not want him.

First, I think the Phoenix Suns are an option because of their starting lineup.

If they sign Iverson, the Suns’ lineup would look like this:

PGSteve Nash

SGAllen Iverson

SFJason Richardson

PFAmar'e Stoudemire

CBen Wallace

Nash, being one of the best point guards of all time, should be perfect for Iverson, if he is willing to pass to him a lot.

Richardson is a great dunker. (Ha, great. That is an understatement. Check out the dunk contest of 2003.)

Stoudemire is one of the best PFs in the league. The pick-and-roll is unstoppable. Think about it: Nash has the ball up top, Amar'e flashes up for the pick, he rolls off, this tricky play draws Iverson's defender, and BOOM!

Nash pops the ball out for A.I., and he shoots the three. Unstoppable.

Wallace is also a good addition to the Suns. He will be good for stopping Dwight Howard. Channing Frye will get lots of minutes, too.

They would need to improve the bench. Get some young players.

So, Iverson goes to Phoenix, for little money, proves all the haters wrong, and gets his ring. Done.
