Iverson: ‘I’m Ready to Play’

And so, it begins. Allen Iverson feels healthy, and says he’s ready to take the court for the Memphis Grizzlies: “Allen Iverson says he’s ready to run with the Grizzlies if the trainers give him permission. And MRI results put Iverson closer to his goal Thursday morning when he was cleared to participate in a full-contact practice. But while Griz coach Lionel Hollins said the workout was encouraging, his understanding is that Iverson’s return is targeted for Monday when the team plays at Sacramento. ‘I felt good,’ Iverson said. ‘It was a regular day of practice for me. I didn’t feel any pain. I didn’t feel fatigued to not be able to get through it. I’m ready to play. It’s up to them.”‘

    I understand his desire to want to come back and prove he’s still got it. But, he’s older now and if I were coach I’d be extremely cautious and wait another week and then limited action.

    I still don’t “get” what’s happening in Memphis, I just hope AI will have a good season, and they’ll get some wins there.

    What’s happening is that the Memphis owner has decided to take the fantasy league approach to building a team with the hopes of making some money off the rubes.

    The Answer!

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Why would Iverson not start ahead of Mike Conley, Wayno?

  • FoCo

    this fool poisons my Denver Nuggets and now my fantasy team…I put Iverson (along with Mo Williams, Shaq, and Steph Curry) at the very bottom of my draft list to ensure I wouldn’t get them as I was unable to be at the live draft and I end up with Conley…Traded Conley, Ron-Ron, and Ben Gordon for Rondo and Stuckey and now I’m set tho.
