AI WITH LB AGAIN?
Allen Iverson still wants to play basketball - on his terms, of course. And guess who might give him the chance next season?
Yep. his old coach in Philadelphia. Larry Brown said he'd be more than willing to take AI back and give his team an offensive spark. Charlotte ranked last in the league in scoring this season.
AI better hope that LB doesn't study the replays of AI's stormy season in Detroit. It was clear to me that AI had lost a step or two and his drives to the basket became increasingly unproductive. I was amazed how often he missed layups and shots within five feet of the basket. And when he didn't put it up, he had an annoying habit of dribbling through the lane and going back outside, rather than looking to pass it to a big man in the lane.
All I can say to LB if the Bobcats sign Iverson as a free agent this summer is good luck. He'll need plenty of it, if he's expecting AI to be the piece that puts Charlotte in the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.
