Breaking News: Allen Iverson & Grizzlies Agree To Terminate Contract

When I reported about a week ago (AI Leaves Grizz For Personal Reasons) I was pretty sure that was the last you would see Allen Iverson in a Memphis Grizzlies uniform and now it has come to past.

According to the Commercial Appeal, A.I. will be waived within the next couple of days and will be able to sign with any team of his choice.

I believe that team to be the Cleveland Cavaliers remember where you heard it first.

The Memphis situation was destine for failure from the beginning.  You can’t take a player who is use to be treated like a “Rock Star” and expect him to be happy with one of the worse franchises in the NBA.  Add on to the fact Iverson thinks he is still the AI of 2002, so he could not and would not accept being a bench player on a bad team.  I am surprised it took three game to be honest.

The question begs is Iverson willing to put his ego in check to be a bench player on a good team or will he continue to be a “cooler” wherever he goes and make the situation worse?

If Lebron makes the decision he wants AI in the Cleveland he will be there.   If not don’t be surprised if he goes to the Knicks where he can shoot 100 times a game average 25 points and lose almost every night.

The sad thing about it, is Iverson would be a great 6th man if he would just wrap his mind that he isn’t an elite player anymore.  He can be effective just not elite.  I don’t think being around Lebron could help him at this point.

On the positive note this new development has given me another opportunity to implore you to watch this video:

    I belive AI will fit in nicely with the Cavs. Don’t Underestimate Him…Lebron, Shaq & AI on 1 team=CHAMPIONSHIP

      If anyone thinks AI in clevland would be a good fit; I beg of them to think again.
      Too many cheifs not enough indians. I thinks that is a GARUNTEE failure. I think he would better in milwaukee. I’m just saying AI and BJ with Redd off the bench. Now that will be a power shift.

    When will people learn that big names DO NOT equal championship ring. Its how those names fit together that determines whether you win the championship let alone make it to the final round. Like you said this isnt AI of 2002 and if it was look out because he'll be looking to score more than a gigolo at a 'Desperate Housewives' convention and with Mike Brown's "Pass It To LeBron" offense strategy, that won't fly well. Although that would give the Cavs an option for the outside threat they so desperately need. Then again he ISNT AI of 2002 and this isnt the unofficial sequel to 'Hoop Dreams.'

    Oh, man, I LOVE that this post was positioned that "… now he can sign with any NBA team he wants". Of course, this pre-supposes that any NBA team (in their right mind) would want him. Go away, Allen. Far away.

  5. AM2k6 says:

    If AI goes to Cleveland and they dont win, then this'd be the last season of Lebron in Cleveland. AI is a cancer.

  21. I now know giving up smoking is extremely difficult. I introduced myself to cancer sticks while I was 14 years old. It was the dumbest mistake of my life. Right now I’m much older and I have lung cancer. I bought a huge number of the stopping techniques still absolutely nothing worked for me. My last try is a smokeless cigarettes e-juice review in the end.

  23. As a HOA manager, I needed to thank you very much all over again. I do not know the things that I could possibly have created without the type of thoughts documented by you relating to that concern. With HOA Members it is a very Rossmar & Graham for me, but viewing a expert form you treated it made me to cry with fulfillment. I am just grateful for the help and then hope that you know what a powerful job you happen to be putting in training the rest through your blog post. I’m certain you have never come across the HOA Board.
