Iverson: ‘Memphis Made an Offer’

Straight from the horse’s mouth, or Twitter feed: “Well I am about to begin another workout session. Agent informed me that Memphis made us an offer on yesterday. Stay tuned.”

    rather have him on charllotte but i just wanna see him on the nba court again

  • http://www.daytonastate.edu/athletics/ White Chocolate*DSC*

    I just want him to go to a place where he can at least win a little bit

  • dave

    i thought Charlotte would get him for sure… still might

  • cramzy

    dammit ai, sign a contract!!!f*** All this stay tuned twitter nonsense!…i’m sorry. Is it October yet?

  • The Coach

    Sad to see A.I. career ending like this….Memphis, where he should be a mentor to kids..but he will show them where to party at sorta how he did in Denver. If he goes their chemistry issues will be interesting to watch..

  • J

    Iverson deserves to be with a championship worthy team, he gives 100% in every game, he has hunger, determination and great energy, who would not want him??

  • jdote

    memphis would be good if they had a solid coach.. obviously have enough talent to atleast compete every night.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Zach Randolph, Rudy Gay, OJ Mayo, and…….Allen Iverson?? This will not end well.

    well J if you havent noticed by now iverson is a chemistry killer not like back in the day when he crossed over MJ.

    Guess those Bobcats stories were a little premature.

    Terrible fit. It’ll slow down Conley’s maturation. Considering that they passed up on very good pg’s in the draft…it’s a weird move. And you can’t have 4 guys hunting shots.

  • http://www.sonicbids.com doyouwantmore

    LOL What a line-up. Maybe they can just take turns bringing the ball up the floor. I can imagine the poor Coach in six months: “Run an iso.” two minutes later: “Run an iso.” two minutes later: “Run an Iso”

    co-sign doyouwantmore. its like the hawks, only really boring since there will be no ball movement with 4 blackholes on the floor.

    I still think NY is the best place where he could play because he would return to his old self again.

  • AgentZero

    ugghh…that is awful – A.I. in Memphis.
    no no no he needs to take his act down to Charlotte and try to rekindle some of his popularity and put some of this supposed maturity and selflessness on display with the Bobcats who are in dire need of some offense – someone, anyone who can get their own shot.
    Memphis has no need for A.I. with Gay and Mayo and Conley.

    The Bobcats found a way to fu(k up again….

  • Sergey

    I rather seem in as a Bobcats player. Why would he go there unless they said he can start at PG. He can start over OJ Mayo, but Mayo should start also. So his only choice is start a PG. But they said he can’t they won’t let him start. So why in the world would he come of the bench for a loser when he can for a title team? Heck he can start for some title teams I think like the Cavs/Magic but that is another story. I hope AI does not go to Memphis.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Cheryl

    I’m with TADone on this one. This does not look like a good fit in terms of “the right way”. Whoo boy, I see a train wreck coming.

  • Pardeep

    Fu(k the Bobcats fu(ked up.

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Memphis would be a good fit for AI. Being surrounded by Gay,Mayo,Z.bo,Thabeet,Gasol.. He wont have as many responsibilities as he did in Philly and Denver. Plus Conley is a pretty good back-up and eventual starter….

  • http://www.slamonline.com Pardeep

    I still don’t know why he wants to go to Memphis. It would be a disastor and ai would get blamed. They would finish 11th in the West. Charlotte with Coach Brown would be great because the Bobcats could make the playoffs if they let Iverson play like Iverson. That deal was supposed to signed by today? But I guess the Bobcats were probably offering like 2 million compared the Grizzlies 5.85 mill. Iverson needs to forget the money and do whats right.

  • http://sevendeu2u.wordpress.com/ Seven deuce

    This is going to catapult Memphis past Golden State as the most dysfunctional team in the league. And most certainly push Rudy Gay (and possibly Mayo) out the door when free agency comes. oh well, they’re a profitable team and that’s all they care about.

  • tavoris

    Mayo has said repeatedly that he wants to play the point…and he’s a good shooter. So why would this NOT work? Conley did well in the end of last season, but he’s clearly not in the Grizz’s plans.

  • tavoris

    take my last sentence back

  • http://www.slamonline.com Pardeep

    Tavoris: Trust me this wouldn’t work. They are all guys who excel when they score. Zach,Mayo,Rudy,Iverson are all scorers and Iverson has been to good of a scorer his career to let youngsters pass him by. They would not move the ball or anything. A.I. is trying to prove doubters wrong but it isn’t going to work on Memphis. I hope A.I. signs with the Bobcats (hopefully this situation works). But I hope he signs before training camp because the last 3 years the team Iverson’s been he has missed training camp!. Last year with Pistons he wasn’t there but he was injured in Denvers training camp and did not go much. The year before he was traded mid-season so he wasn’t in training camp with his actual team.

  • “IZ”

    A.I. should sign with the Memphis, but, he should come off the bench after Conley!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://sevendeu2u.wordpress.com/ Seven deuce

    The only person who would be glad he’s there is Zach Randolph.: “Thank God, somebody will take the glare off me! Now I can roll up this spliff in the club in peace after I beat down another clown asking for an autograph.”

  • Exile

    Losing interest…. wait….. nope…gone….

  • http://www.google.ca tealish

    No. I don’t like this.

  • http://fdjsklf.com Jukai

    Who’s this Allen Iverson you speak of?

  • sweetrose

    What is going on with AI? I thought he was close to a deal with The Bobcats. I am getting frustrated now. This has to be a better offer than The Bobcats. Ofcourse the Bobcats don’t have money and they are up for sale. Look like Dime Magazine wasn’t reliable. Both teams have a lot of talent. Anyway I think the East is as strong as the West.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    WHY would Memphis want to sign Iverson when they have OJ MAYO?

  • http://WWW.Facebook.com Watari Atari

    A.I. To Bobcats!

  • http://slamonline.com Dave

    Well, it makes more sense than pairing him with D-Wade (didn’t work with Melo, why would it work there?). On the downside, he’ll never see the Conference Semi’s the rest of his life.

  • Tyquan

    I thought he was an LA Clipper last month with a Miami Heat special request from Pat Riley if I didn’t know any better it seems like he playing the role of his own damn agent slash I don’t know where the hell I might end up sort of scenario.
    Like I said in June he should go to Miami with more established vets. Quentin Richardson trade was an underrated pick up despite breaking a record for gettin traded 4 times in two months. Peace!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Pardeep

    I think the only thing making A.I. want to sign with the Grizzlies is the money. It might be these comments made by the Grizzlies GM today though.http://www.myfoxmemphis.com/dpp/sports/nba/grizzlies/082609_Grizzlies_GM_Talks_on_Iverson_Interest

  • cballer

    Can’t he go somewhere else with more chance to win a ring?

  • George B

    Stop writting rumors. Wait till he signs then you report the real news.

  • skywalker

    he should just retire while he still has some honor left

  • Shem

    Uh oh conley, oj, rudy, AI, and randolph on the same team. The 8-ball tells me trouble is ahead
