Is $5 Mil Enough to Bring A.I. to Memphis?

Team owner Michael Heisley certainly hopes so: “Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley wants to meet with Iverson and is seriously considering a one-year, $5 million offer, according to team insiders. Heisley’s renewed interest presents a sudden turn of events, given that the organization had all but decided to pass on Iverson…What began as exploratory discussions with the Griz has turned into substantive talks, according to sources. And the Grizzlies are a house divided on the issue. There is little to no support for signing Iverson in the organization, but Heisley is having second thoughts. Heisley will make the final call, and he is leaning toward the risk-reward given Iverson’s marketing appeal and basketball ability compared with his controversial work ethic.”

    Lang is raising the five million himself to give to Memphis to give to AI just for the cover.

  • PArsons

    I REALLY hope this doesn’t happen or Memphis will be rebuilding until shaq’s kids have finished college.

  • geof

    Z-bo and AI . . . together at last

  • rikson

    Everyone gets what he deserves -> except Sideshow Bob and Bargnani

    If they get AI, they will be a purely offensive team. Good thing they have Thabeet for Defense. But then again, it’ll be like Denver all over again. (Camby being the only one playing defense)

  • http://www.slamonline.com wayno

  • Quail

    @jim: Darius Miles wouldnt be in the PF rotation. Darrell Arthur would.

  • whooo!

    this is sad… who woulda thought that it’d come down to AI WANTING to be in Memphis cuz nobody else wants his selfish ass.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    5 mil? That’s some BS. Carlito Cool gets 50 million and the Grizzlies are trying to throw FIVE at Iverson? This must be a joke…

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    whooo! can you tell me how many assists Iverson averaged the season before last in Denver? Can you tell me how many shots he took per game in Detroit, compared to his career averages in shooting? No? Then don’t talk about selfishness.

  • 585

    actually i think ZACH RANDOLPH WILL START PF

  • http://gmail.com Evan Dunphy

    It’s not about selfish if AI would like his team to win he should be able to average 20 and 10 instead of trying to be the next Jordan.

  • #6marjon

    it’s all he’s worth

  • Cmac

    if iverson can only pull 5 and sideshow can get 50 i am very dissapointed in the league. please go back to the sixers, or the bobcats

  • http://www.slamonline.com richie rich

    no iverson needs a championship team he needs to go to clevland or miAmi

  • JUFU

    this proves it. ai’s career is dying.

  • RC the Bx

    Who would have thought a perrenial All Star throughout his entire NBA career would have it come down to being offered the mid level exception by a perrenial rebuilding team.
    Iverson has no one to blame but himself, throughout his career, he was one of the most selfish players to ever play in the NBA.
    He refused to defer to his team mates, takes an enormous amount of shots per game and was only interested in personal glory not the betterment of the team.
    Basketball was and always will be a team sport.
    Even Kobe Bryant realized he can’t win a championship by himself.
    This is sad end for what should have been an illustrious career.
    He has the numbers, All Star appearances but NO CHAMPIONSHIPS.
    Sad end for a great talent.
