    Team Iverson..smh.. it’s always all about him. jk

    I hope your right Pardeep. I hope he doesn’t just play the first half of every game when they aren’t playing defense.

    Pardeep’s right A.I. has been out on football field all over Atlanta since the summer training with the guy that trained Mike Vick before he had that near MVP season in Philly with the Eagles… Vick’s workouts were designed to have his fast twitch muscles firing like they were in the past and he got those back gaining his speed and quickness back it was easy for him he was always a freak of nature so AI should be a lot quicker and explosive than the last year.. AI was there almost every other day and that is just the athletic part he was in Virgina Pro-Am hooping all night as well. He will be able to run with the young cats.

    This should be really good, be good to see if AI has still got it, also good to see alot of the rookies going at it.

    how can we know if he still has it when most players probably do not care about defense in these types of games?

    This man has a heavy curse on him this is a good chance for him, but nothing goes his way these past couple years if you follow him as a fan like myself u wud think hes cursed to the point where this game doesnt happened bcoz the lockout ends a day before:l
