Default Had Allen Iverson gone to the Celtics


How good would they had of been if the Celtics could have acquired AI instead of Denver. They were one of the front runners to get him in the first place, but Philly didn't want to trade him to a rival. They probably would have traded players like Gerald Green, West, and Jefferson. So how good would a duo of Iverson and Pierce be? How far would they go?

Their line-up would look somewhat like this

Pg: Sebastian Telfair
Sg: Allen Iverson
Sf: Paul Pierce
Pf: Leon Powe
C: Kendrick Perkins



Don't really know who there other bigs were at the time. Edit the line-up how you think it would have been.

If we did Jefferson, Green and West we would have kept the number 5 pick and added a big, probably Yi.

All I can say is expect a lot following posters to underrate him.

Hypothetically, I think they would scratch a winning record.

Pierce and Iverson are capable of commanding double teams, and are 24+ PPG threats almost every night.

Nuggets situation right now is slightly better..

Oh and Iverson and Tony Allen would probably start, Or Rondo and Iverson.

I love Iverson but I think we made the right decision going for KG and Ray Allen, hahah.

They would be a playoff team easily of course because it is the Eastern Conference.

Then don't make the thread if you don't wanna take the two minutes it would take to look it up. Stop making threads please.

Boston made the right choice.

Boston still would've been amazing tho in the East. maybe they still could've gotten Ray. that would've been interesting.

Boston's bench woud've been better

Your so kind. Now go look up some stats and post something about basketball, and stop making these useless "what if" threads. Nobody cares. It didn't happen.

No hard feelings though man, just a thought I had, I don't like to argue here, so...

Boston would be better off with Allen/KG than Iverson, and the Nuggets would be better off with Iverson than Miller/Smith. They wouldn't be 19-2 right now, that's for sure.

Wouldn't have worked. We don't end up with the #5 pick if we trade for Iverson, so if Big Al was involved we would have no quality bigs. It would have been Pierce, Iverson and Wally Szczerbiak with probably Perkins and Powe in the front court.

Rondo
Ray
Pierce
KG
Perk

OR

Iverson
Pierce
Wally
Powe
Perk

Thank god Billy King was unwilling to trade Iverson to a team in the East let alone a team in the same division.

The deal never was going to involve Jefferson. At least that's what Ainge said two summers before the talks began.
