Jerry Stackhouse on Iverson: "Scoring titles is the only thing on A.I's mind"
From Ira Winderman's Sunday Column:
WAIT AND SEE: Mavericks guard Jerry Stackhouse, a former teammate of Iverson's in Philadelphia, remains unsold on the prospects of the Iverson-Carmelo Anthony pairing in Denver. "He has aspirations of winning scoring titles, no matter who's on his team," Stackhouse said. "I'd say give it until the end of the season. Somebody might want to get out."
Stack is right........scoring titles is the only thing on AI's mind.....just not owning it himself...
While Iverson is second in the league to Anthony in scoring average, his focus isn't on winning another scoring crown. He's already led the league in scoring four times.
"I want Melo to win it," Iverson said. "I want him to have something like that on his resume because he deserves it. I'll be right there to help accomplish that."
Would he have said that eight years ago?
"It depends on when I won my first (scoring title)," he said with a grin. "After that, it didn't matter. Eight years ago, I would've thought I would've won eight championships by now. I'm going to do anything it takes to win a championship."
