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