Allen Iverson has been a disappointment last season. He used to be a former MVP last 2001, when he and the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Lakers in the NBA Finals. He was traded to Denver after a few years, but he and Carmelo Anthony did not have enough success to lift them up in the NBA Finals. Allen Iverson was shipped to Detroit in exchange of Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess (who returned to Detroit after he was traded), but still no success for Iverson because of his role in the team as bench. He is not playing at his All-Star level due to his old age. When he became a free agent two seasons ago, he used to sign with the Memphis Grizzlies to a one-year contract worth $3 million. Unfortunately once again, Allen Iverson got unlucky because he was a bench player instead of a starter. His relationship with coach Lionel Hollins of the Grizzlies was not good, and he only played three games without a win.
He decided to leave Memphis and become a free agent once again. New York Knicks has been one of the possiblities that could land the former All-Star veteran. But their management had changed plans of not signing “The Answer” to the Knicks, which leds him to announce his retirement. Coach Larry Brown of the Charlotte Bobcats, a former coach of the Sixers with Iverson, says that Iverson should not retire because there is still an energy left on his battery to make an impact. The Sixers under coach Eddie Jordan had signed Allen Iverson to a non-guaranteed contract which is good for one year. The fans were excited about his homecoming return to the Sixers as he rejoined Andre Iguodala, Samuel Dalembert, Thaddeus Young and the others to lift the hopes of the Sixers. However, he is out of luck again.
He was appointed to be the starting point guard for the Sixers until the remainder of the season, but their team record was very awful and ended up eliminated in the playoffs. He left the Sixers after playing more than twenty games because of his personal problems with his wife and his ailing child. His wife filed a divorce on that time he left the Sixers, and he needs to rebuild his own block to return next season. But where would he join? He is a free agent now, and he’s looking for a job at least for a minimum contract. Why don’t he join a team that has power pack of players like Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James? Both James and Iverson are eyeing for their first championship ring, so that means its a possiblity that they could sign “The Answer” to the Sixers. Two days ago, Zydrunas Ilgauskas has decided to leave the Cavs to follow LeBron James to the Miami Heat, and sources say that Mike Miller is very close in signing with the Heat. Although they fail to sign Derek Fisher which he wants to play again for the Lakers, so what about A.I.? Do they need him to win a championship? We’ll see what happens if what team does Allen Iverson wants to be in order to win a championship, but there’s a good chance that he would sign with the Heat and join the “Three Kings”.
