Iverson and Larry Brown Together Again?

Ask Larry Brown what he thinks about reuniting with Allen Iverson. His answer? Nahhh: “He said he’s still receptive to coaching Allen Iverson, who’ll be an unrestricted free agent this summer, but wonders whether the Bobcats — a team far from championship contention — is the right fit for Iverson this late in his career.”

    I doubt it. AI needs a token role on a contender. He’s not gonna help a young team.

    AI needs work. As pathetic as that sounds for a great player like him. Nobody is really checking him out right now after the Detroit fiasco.

  • http://www.slamonline.com James the balla

    hahahah DO IT … I want to see BET cryyyyyy.


    I think this will be a good fit for da cats AI can play the 2 while ramond can play da one. the bobcats will have a freakin starting 5 C Emeka Okafor PF Boris Diaw SF Gerald Wallace SG allen Iverson PG Raymond felton. if this lineup doesnt make da playoffs den its da chemistry.

  • niQ

    i think he could actually fit. felton chucks up shots like no tomorrow.

  • http://slamonline.com B. Long

    There’s this guy named D.J. who is gonna need some minutes next year.

  • WhaHuh

    Isnt DJ a PG

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Allen Iverson is STILL good. Why are people acting like he’s a reserve? Just last season he averaged 27 points and 7 assists PER GAME. So yeah, James the balla, shut your trailer tr@sh mouth.
    And I’m pretty sure BETCATS would be happy to have AI… Dumb@ss. I’m starting to think the g@y so-called “imposter” of you IS actually the real you. Idiot.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    *Que James’ immature, stupid insult*

  • $tev3

    Yea and no more ray felton dummies

    AI will never win a championship until AI himself realizes a team can’t win a championship if it’s built around AI.
    The Cats will be dominated by Iverson if he goes there, though they should at least sell quite a few more tickets until they’re 15-30 and fans realize he doesn’t fit any better there than he did in Detroit.

    i predicted this as soon as ai went to detroit.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    LMFAO @ Chen: He won’t fit in to Charlotte? Are you serious? If he goes there he’s obviously going to be the central figure. Who the hell else are you going to build a team around in CHARLOTTE?
    Oh, I forgot, the Bobcats really need Raymond Felton to be the top dog. Iverson is really going to have a hard time finding his role there, better not disrupt the chemistry. I mean, Charlotte IS a championship caliber team that doesn’t need an All-Star/Future Hall of Famer to help them out there, right? Best to not spoil all that nice, winning team chemistry! Yeah, you’re right Chen.

    ^Teddy The Bear and Tarzan Cooper are both extremely on point today! But honestly, if Iverson comes, he will most likely serve as 20-30 minutes of scoring/mentoring DJ and whatever Shooting Guard we draft. He would also open the way for us to trade Raja, which would get us a lot in return, but might mess up chemistry. If we draft Earl Clark, it will be a clear indication Iverson is comming. If we draft Terrance Williams/Gerald Henderson/James Harden/Demar Derozan it will be a clear indication he is not. Simple as that, watch the draft and draw a conclusion from their.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    but Teddy, please dont call me James the Balla, ever again.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    lol BET, I didn’t call you James… But I know why you don’t want to be called that. Point taken. Co-sign what you said about the draft, too.

  • http://Slamonline Eboy

    Ha! James the Balla what a b*tch

  • floridablack

    ai needs to go back to the sixers thats the only perfect fit for him ….larry brown great coach hell get what he needs to get done outta any player remeber detroit he taught those guys how to play their role ai just doest get it hes not a shooter

  • knock knock

    why do you people defend someone who’s made over a hundred million in his nba career? AI is a ballhog who shoots n shoots. Always on .500 teams because frankly he’s really not that good. Just because someone looks good shooting the ball doesn’t mean he’s a franchise player.

    * i’ve played with people like that in pickup games all the time, you kno..the guy who comes with baggy pants and a good handle, shoots more than 20 shots a game and makes less than half of them. The ONE guy who will make your whole team lose the game when erry one else is going for it.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    @ knock knock: You are a complete and helpless idiot. “frankly he’s really not that good”. HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED BASKETBALL? Wow, what does a person’s salary have to do with anything?
    Not a franchise player? The one guy who will make a whole team lose? Sorry, I guess I forgot that he never singlehandedly carried the 76ers to the Finals. He never averaged 30 points and 10 assists A GAME in a playoff series, either. You’re right, he’s not that good.
    If that’s all true, you aren’t a f*cking dumb@ss, either. Too bad its not.
    And you are.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Hahahaha HUGE burn by Teddy. That was actually really funny to read.
    But yeh, what BET said basically.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Blinguo

    Wow, figured the thoughtless comments wouldn’t get worse than mister “balla” ; Then it did, but Teddy took care of it in record time. Good work B.

  • knock knock

    ai has made the finals once. won ONE GAME in the finals. seriously tedddy, get off this guys nuts. What makes iverson so good again?? 30 points on 20 shots is horrible no matter how you put it. 10 assists in 48 minutes??? The only time he passes the ball is when someone can have a chance to score. “Finally glad to be on a team that makes it to the conf. finals every year” – allen iverson before joining the pistons. SERIOUSLY you may WATCH ball but you have no idea to play if you think a.i. is a good or even average nba player. he’s garbage

  • knock knock

    so take down all your a.i. posters i know you got hanging up all over your walls and next to your barbie dolls. LMAO

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Okay, my previous comment speaks for itself. AI is not “even average” in the NBA. Bahaha that was just flat out stupid. I don’t know what else to say, that left me pretty speechless..
    Maybe you should learn how to do math, idiot. 30 points on just 2-point field goals is 15 baskets made.
    But wait! knock knock here from the local YMCA thinks shooting 15-20, or 75% from the field is horrible no matter how you put it! I guess that means the entire NBA is garbage, and knock knock’s cr@ppy @ss bantam-league team could bring home the title.
    Kobe Bryant who?

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Oh and knock knock: by 30 points and 10 assists, I meant he averaged those numbers every single game for AN ENTIRE PLAYOFF SERIES. Thanks.

  • http://www.twitter.com/mansonovic Mansonovic

    I keep waiting on “knock knock” to slip up and call AI a “cartoon”. C’mon, Mr “Different Greek Name Every Week”, we know it’s you…

  • http://www.wow.com nate the great

    @ Teddy the Bear, Slam posting where Amazing happens.

  • truthteller

    I wouldn’t go as far as saying AI is garbage but knock, knock does have a point. AI only excels when he is the only star on a team. When there are other stars on a team that team struggles because AI doesn’t know how share. When he was in Philly he took over 21 shots a game ’cause he was given the green light to do so but when he got to denver and detroit, he wanted to keep doing that when there was no need to. Yes, AI averaged 30 in Denver and how did that do for the Nuggets? He also averaged 27 in Detroit and how did that go for detroit?

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    He didn’t average 27 in Detroit, truthteller. They played him 18 minutes…
    In Denver how did that go? He redeemed a team that hadn’t made the playoffs in what, a decade? I don’t even know how long.. I’d say it turned out fine.


    Nah a good fit for my dude A.I. would be Cleveland cuz LJ could care less about shooting with the answer running the lanes he’s sure to break the assist record cuz my dude put up buckets. A.I. is still that dude

  • http://slamonline.com blaze

    I think he should go to a team where he wont have to be the best player,much like Mitch Richmond did on the lakers if he is to ever get a ring.

  • http://slamonline.com blaze

    Im not hating, AI has always been one of my favs, but I really wish he would have become a pure point guard, hes too undersized to play the 2. He has a lot of heart but wont win a championship from the drivers seat.
