Well, I guess it is time to say goodbye to the Pistons best player and championship chances.
Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess, and Cheikh Samb just got one-way tickets to Denver, while Detroit gets "the cancer" that is Allen Iverson.
Don't get me wrong, Iverson is a great basketball player. He does things on the floor that are humanly impossible.
The problem is "practice." Practice equals work ethic. Practice equals team basketball. Practice equals defense.
The Pistons already have Rasheed Wallace. Now they have the only player with a worse work ethic than 'Sheed.
With the addition of AI, the new starting lineup will look like this:
Iverson, Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, 'Sheed, and Amir Johnson
I don't think that Rip and Tayshaun can guard all five players on the other team. We all know that AI and 'Sheed won't play defense and Amir just stands under the rim swatting at every shot that goes up.
Please Joe Dumars, package AI and 'Sheed for a real star.
Maybe one that can spell T-E-A-M.
