Says here that the Clippers’ owner has little organizational support in his pursuit of The Answer: “Clippers owner Donald Sterling wants Allen Iverson, but not many of his top basketball people are thinking along those lines. ‘It’s out of our control,’ complained one Clipper executive this past week. ‘This is owner-driven.’ Apparently, Sterling has noted that Clippers tickets are moving as slowly as L.A. traffic. He sees Iverson as a box-office draw, even in a bench role following a disastrous season in Detroit that ended with him being sent home for the playoffs. But it’s pretty clear that Iverson, a free agent one GM called ‘our league’s Barry Bonds,’ isn’t in coach Mike Dunleavy’s plans.”
