Yeah, I know of his daughters illness. Maybe that did have SOME part in it but, that's not his sole reason for underperforming.

I dont know about "lots of offers" either other than the opportunities he had over seas and blew...

The real action is here though and AI wants back in, no NBA teams are biting though. Just here recently, AI said he would play for ANY team in the NBA.

The problem is, AI cant take critique or suffer through any sort of disciplinary action for too long before he snaps. He just wants to be the guy, period. Remember, it's not just his physical step that he's lost, but his mental one.

Also, teams dont want a potential distraction AI might bring such as going off on police officers for a fault that lied soley on him...I mean, renew your tabs, youre rich. LOL

If he could accept coming off the bench and playing limited, someone MIGHT have actually had some interest by now too.
