What is Joe Dumars thinking? I know he was excited to get his college degree, but seriously, trading Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess for Allen Iverson just does not make sense.
Iverson is more suited to be a shooting guard than running the point and I know Dumars loves Rodney Stuckey, but he is not yet ready to be the starter and Rip Hamilton should not be in a bench role.
I think the reason that it has been awhile since Iverson has played on a contender is his ability to convince management to get rid of the good supporting players around him and make himself the only worthwhile player on the floor and then says he wants out and gets himself traded.
So this means Allen Iverson will be the point guard and will throw up wild shots every time down the floor and turn the team and city against him as he takes the Pistons from contender to pretender.
The report is that the deal will be finalized in the hour. Hopefully, in that time someone will talk some sense into Dumars. Otherwise, the Pistons are in for a long and ultimately dissappointing ride.
