excerpt from Iverson after team USA's practice:

On his own championship prospects at age 29, after eight seasons in the league and with the rebuilding Sixers:

"I definitely feel like it's coming. And I don't want a championship where I'm 35, 40 years old, take a pay cut and go play for the team that everybody in the media is saying is gonna win it. I don't want it that way. I don't want that championship. I want the championship where I'm the leader on the team. I don't have to be the facial figure of the team. I honestly want to play with another All-Star or that type of player, but ... I want it in Philadelphia, simple as that. All the stuff that I've been through, that place turned me from a young man to a grown man, and I'm not talking about all the good things."

I respect his loyalty for Philly and not wanting to just chase a ring, aka Malone.

He needs to work hard and set an example for his teams though, aka it's just practice.

I have always had a TON of respect for Iverson. The man is the toughest player with his size, and his courage is amazing. I am glad to see he won't sell out like malone. Good for him.

Ditto. Living one town over from where he's from, I've come to be a bit of an Iverson fan. I've always liked his game [even defended his ball-hogging a few times, since after all he was the only offensive option]. A lot of the off-court crap is unnecessary, but knowing where he comes from, it's easier to understand.

I've really tried to like AI, but everytime I start to tolerate him, he says/does something stupid.

In this instance, however, he's right on the money. Wonder if Karl will retaliate in the press like he did when Reggie called him out? :shrug:

He said something to the effect that Reggie chose money in staying with the Pacers.

You guys are so right about the love/hate thing with Iverson. Just when you think you can justify thinking he's great/awful, he comes up with something to completely change your mind, regardless of what you think of him.

I guess people like that are needed to keep things lively.

Ha! I only get to play a Tyrant in make-believe land. In real life, I'm a lackey of a shlub like anyone else.

Good job using the correct version of you're unlike that other fool who started a thread about a month ago. :laugh:

Iverson is definitely a unique player in terms of his personality. He has many traits like his competitiveness, passion, loyalty etc.,, that as a fan you love. Unfortunately, he also has some traits that are disruptive to the team like some of his actions last season. I agree with Vicious Tyrant there is definitely a love/hate thing with Iverson. If AI wants to end his career in Philly then this season he has to be on his best behavior because if he starts a feud with O'Brien it will be AI that is shown the door this time around. Billy King is giving him one last chance this season with a new coach.

You agree with me?

Gee thanks dipperdunk. When you're a new guy you just kind of assume no one is even paying attention to what you say.

Awww shucks....thanks for noticing :blush:
