Kings, Warriors, Celtics, Pacers In The Lead For Iverson
Celtics, Warriors And Kings Lead Hunt For Iverson

Boston was in the hunt for Allen Iverson on Monday, with a deal that would include Al Jefferson and Theo Ratliff with his $11.7-million contract.
Jefferson said neither Rivers nor general manager Danny Ainge had spoken with him about it. "I don't want it to happen, especially my name involved in it," Jefferson said. Told after the game that Jefferson doesn't want to be traded, Rivers said: "He won't be. I try to stay out of it because I have to coach the players and I don't want to lie to the players. But I'm pretty comfortable in saying that Al will be here."
The Sixers reportedly want to include forward Chris Webber, who has $43 million remaining on his contract, but teams are backing away at that idea.
Golden State and Sacramento also appear to be among the teams most likely to acquire Iverson.
Indiana emerged Monday as a strong player, with discussions centering around Jamaal Tinsley and Stephen Jackson.
Man screw the Pacers. Who the hell wants Sjax and Jamaal Tnsley. First of all SJax is cancer, and is streaky and isn't that great and Jamaal well he is a walking accident. He is always bound to get injured, you can count on that every single seeason.
The Kings really need AI but I don't know if we'll get him. I'm still doubtful but eh, we're screwed now if we don't. Bibby will have to get traded anyway and I'm sure he knows he's been dangled for Iverson.
And because we don't want his dreadlocked ass coming west!!!
Its called Braids homie lol ..:) And I cant see him playing for the Pacers because anyone who has followed his career would tell you hes not too liked in indiana by the fans (racial slurs) Its all about him being on a team that needs his scoring (bulls,kings,T-wolves,Celts)
