Iverson is a selfish thug. The sooner he's out of the D the better.

He's injured right now, and not at 100%
Give him a break!
He will come back!

Who didn't see this coming?

Oh well that's what Detroit gets for steeling the Pistons from Indiana and turning all their fans into convicts.

This was a bad move by Dumars anyway.. AI is a little biaatch because he can't get his way.. Someone needs to slap this little Biaatch.. I don't see why Dumars traded for another point guard anyway, they need some big guys..

I still cant see why they traded Chauncy for him.
Seems like maybe that was a bad move.

But, Iverson seems to allways be willing to give the ball away to a team mate for the assist, when he could have gone in and scored himself.

I still think though, they should have kept Chauncy!
He's a class act player!

And the same goes for the rest of his stolen team who turned all their fans into convicts. Especially Rasheed "Pot Head" Wallace.

1.Detriot and the stolen Pistons want to sign some one big next season when there aren't any big name FA's out there.

2.In 2 years there will be a bunch of good big name FA's, but Rodney Stuckey will be one of them.

I'm just glad he is done. I don't see any team signing him to play as a starter. Bynum is a hell of alot better than him.. 26 point 4th quarter... AI go hide under a rock and cry.. Hopefully his B.S. didn't do to much damage to the team mentally.. If they do make the playoffs I don't see them going to far but it would be nice to watch.

Because they were originally the Fort Wayne INDIANA Pistons:

AI will be hiding under a rock and crying after his stolen team gets sweeped in the first round of the 2009 NBA playoffs.

PS.
I will have a broom in my hand when I watch that game.

Dumars is very over rated as a GM, can you say Darco???
Piston's are starting many years of bad teams
Where's Al Eberhard when you need him???

Dumar's didnít make the trade for Iverson thinking he was the missing piece of the puzzle. He knew this was a rebuilding year, and he wanted to develop his younger players, Stucky, and Will Bynum. Getting rid of the big money contract of Bilups, and picking up Iverson on a one year deal will free up a lot of money for next year. I think after this season Iverson , and Wallace will be gone, and I think Dumars is going after Chris Bosh. He may have f upped on Darko, but he is a move or two ahead of most. Bosh would be a great addition to this young rebuilt team.

It was done for salary cap reasons. For Piston fans, it was "hang on to Chauncey until death do us part"...sort of like the Tiger fans' love affair with Pudge Rodriguez.

At the end of the year, both A.I. and Hashish Wallace will be gone...hopefully Michael Curry will be gone as well. He certainly isn't an NBA caliber head coach.

Just the wrong player on the wrong team. But remember the piston's made this move to clear up cap space. I doubt iverson is done though, he's still virtually the same player when he has played:
