    Is Allen Iverson a punk for quitting on his team, or, in today's me-first world is he justified in demanding a trade to a contendah?

    Definitely justified. He carried this crappy franchise on his back his whole career. He took a team that had Eric Snow as it's second best player to the finals.

    Justified? What the fuck has Iverson ever won? What the fuck has Iverson ever done but be for Iverson?

    He didn't win a championship but face it spnited, he's NEVER had a surrounding cast/great player around him. In the Sixers' "glory" years with Iverson, he was surrounded with guys like Aaron Mckie,Eric Snow, and Matt Geiger.
    Secondly, this guy isn't a center or power forward. He's a 6'0(he's listed at that but he's really around 5'9) point/shooting guard. That's amazing.

    Chuck, buddy, I like you and this is not intended to make you feel bad, but this is starting to sound REALLY familiar.

    Georgetown's all-time leading scorer when he left
    Two-time Big East Defensive Player of the Year
    World University Games Gold Medalist
    1st Overall Draft Pick
    Rookie of the Year
    League MVP
    Two-time All-Star Game MVP
    Olympian - and one who spoke out about players not wanting to win enough
    Survived 11 seasons in the NBA at six-feet tall (if that)
    Four-time scoring champ (as a six-foot guard)
    Brought a poop team to the finals

    He hasn't done much.

    And I guess Charles Barkley sucks, too. After all, he never won an NBA Championship.

    I know, I know but that's what I believe. But I will say this. On the field/court, Michael Vick couldn't hold AI's jockstrap.
    You might not agree with me on the Vick thing, but you have to look at what AI has done.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention coach-killer!

    I'm not questioning Iverson's ability. Just everything else about his personality

    He's done some stupid stuff in the past. But he's alot more mature than the old days.

    He had his spats with Larry Brown, but in the end, they worked it out.

    Aren't AI and Vick from the same area of Virginia?

    Chuck, you sure you're a Michigan boy? :D
