    "I'm the captian on the team and to be suspended just for being a couple of minutes late doesn't sit well for me. I'm supposed to be one of the leaders of the team, and this is not a good look."

    Yeah? You're a leader? You want a good look? Then get your ass to the venue on time. I highly doubt Allen was in a time crunch on account of having to stay late at his second job or something.. Wake your ass up 10 minutes earlier.

    Got a cell phone Al? Give us a call if your running late for some good reason.

    what the fuck were they thinking when they took him over Michael Redd? Nothing would be better then to see the team lose in the Olympics because of a 1-15 shooting day and 8 TO's from AI.
     
  4. He sure has a profound grasp of the leader concept. He can play lights out at times, but his barin spends too much time on the bench.

    As much as I hate his attitude, behavior, and the sock on the arm, tatoos, and cornrows, this guy can really play the game. It hurts me to say it, but he is amazing at times and unbelieveable at others. I wouldn't want him on my team though, I'd rather watch from a distance!

    Iverson shows all the leadership qualities of a recent Buckeye "captain" named Rombo.

    Anybody who doesn't want to practice (yes, we're talking about PRACTICE) isn't a leader in a team sport. I mean I'm sure if one asked Jerry Rice, he'd say work ethic wasn't important and all :shake: AI has a lot of talent, and he can play hurt, which means he's tough, but IMO he pisses all that away with his give-a-shit attitude about making his teammates better and improving his ridiculous turnover numbers and shot selection, all of which you do at PRACTICE.

    He is only a leader when he's on the floor. i don't think he has the off the court kind of leadership ability he needs to be captain of an olympic team.

    But speaking for the 3 guy's who were late, Lebron, Amare, and Iverson: "they were all of 4 minutes late with a very good excuse but Larry Brown did the right thing and sttod by the team rule and had to suspend them". This incident doesn't go along with Al's past transgressions but because of his past he looks even worse for this one.

    JohnnyCockfight Beer is God's proof that he loves us.

    I'm a big Iverson fan, if for nothing more than for how far he has come considering where he came from, but I do wonder if his style of dribbling is allowable in international play. Does anyone know the international rules, and whether or not he's going to be called for travelling every time he puts the ball on the floor?

    scarletngrey11 All right, all right, all right.

    The Knicks. :biggrin:
     
  13. KG was sure lobbying hard after the game for his TWolves to try and get him, but who do they have to give up...

    Maybe the The rookie from Nova(name escapes me right now) and a draft pick or two...
