Why would they hold PRACTICE on Thanksgiving? A game, ok, but PRACTICE? They have a game tonight. so practice wouldn't be intense... so why bother...

I understand that he should have gone to practice, but I don't blame him for spending the holiday with his family either. If he's willing to pay the fine, who are we to judge. His money, his life, his family. Personally I don't care for him, but the future Hall of Famer has the bucks for the fine.

!!!! marbury cat mak'in all that paper out here & he front'in on his team like that!!!!!!! Man their are millions of people who would love to be in your shoes right now, he's acting just like a little rich kid. Grow the Hell up stephon, your to old to be acting like a sissy with your coach!!! Your teammates are not the problem, you & your coach maybe at odds but when you turn your back on your teammates to me YOU AIN'T !!!!. Quentin shoulda punched his punk !!! in the mouth, GET RID OF THAT DUDE "NEW YORK" A.S.A.P. You don't need him, he's a good ball player yes he is & you can't take that away from him but, he's not for his team & it shows from his actions. He'll be lucky if other NBA team picks his butt up, if i owed my own team i dang sure wouldn't.

Looks like because of practice AI sucks again. Oh well serves him right for agreeing to play for a stolen team who turned all their fans into convicts.

Every PROFESSIONAL athlete says that even though they play a "game" it is still a Business! Iverson can NEVER be anything more than a PUNK from the ghetto.
I hope that the pistons cut his behind!
Alright look, I hate the Pistons just as much as the next person. That Dip Shizz Fred Zollner let the city of Detroit steal them from Ft. Wayne Indiana when he clearly should have either moved them to Indianapolis Indiana instead and possibly changed their name or just kept them in Ft. Wayne. Then Indiana after having the Pistons for over 20 years went 11 years with only a farm league baseball team (come on what state doesn't have that) and 10 more years with a farm league MLB team + A farm league ABA team. Then to make matters worst, when the Pistons moved to Detroit they turned all their fans into convicts.

But honestly I think AI isn't really that bad of an NBA player. He's still got something left in him. He is just with the wrong team in Detroit, because they already have a good SG in Richard "Rip" Hamilton (their star player) meaning AI can't be much more then a bench player for the Pistons behind their star player. But I think allot of teams like the Cleveland Cavs who could use an elite SG like AI would trade allot for him. For example I bet the Cavs would give the Stolen Pistons, Ben Wallace, Wally Serbiak (correct me on SP if needed), Anderson Verajauh and A draft pick for AI and possibly Rasheed Wallace. Or maybe just AI. And I think AI would do good on a team like Cleveland, Minnesota, Utah, New Orleans or maybe Portland since they need A SG. But he isn't going to do anything for the Pistons, because they already have about the best SG in the NBA.

Because little Joey Dumars has been a idiot who has made allot of bad bad moves in changing his stolen team around this season.

No doubt that Isiah Thomas has had an influence on Dumars. I hope Dumars stays away from sleeping pills while Iverson is with Detroit.

I doubt he does, signing Kwamie Brown was bad enough. But then again that serves him right for agreeing to work for a stolen team who turned all their fans into convicts.

Curry called a practice on Thanksgiving because of their lack of chemistry on the court and their lack of practice time together since the Iverson/Billups trade.

I know I don't blame him. I wouldn't want to practice for a stolen team who turned all their fans into convicts either.
