Iverson was the best part of the team

the revenue and fans he brought in made up for his personality.

I never watched basketball with much interest until the sixers drafted iverson. his style of play, his heart, and his passion made me a sixers fan

then king trades a.i. for what? Andre Miller?

And anyone who thinks Iguodala can carry a team is an idiot, he couldn't score 30 in a game if he was playing a high school team

Why hire the GM from another equally incompetent organization? The Nets are as big a joke as the Sixers. How about raiding the management of Detroit or San Antonio?

It's tough being a Philly sports fan when upper management is so damned stupid.

Should have happened in 2001, Billy King doesn't know the first thing about basketball, even after playing at Duke.
