Not to be condescending, but maybe some rationality should have been used from the beginning. The Memphis Commercial Appeal (or its quick-hitting Tweet machine) is reporting that Allen Iverson and Grizzlies will officially part ways (H/T Jeff):

Griz and Iverson agree to end contract. Iverson will be waived, sources tell The Commercial Appeal.

Where Iverson goes from here is anyone’s guess. We could argue for hours about where he should go, but it’s clear AI wants to start and play for a winning team. More specifically, he wants a chance at a ring… this season. Would a contender give Iverson the major burn he’s looking for?

I think the conversation starts and stops there.
