Thoughts like that surface sooner or later if you're used to being your team's leading scorer, and it'll nag on you and take its toll if you're not careful.


of course... people will be saying that after weeks, months, even a year...

Default Why-verson you haters?

Why is everybody hating on AI? Can't you guys appreciate the special player that he is? His skills are incredible, his resiliency is even more amazing. He's a hall-of-famer and he'll make things work pretty well in Denver, he's too talented not to.

He is definitely one of the best players under 6-feet ever. I don't care that he's listed at 6 feet. AI is a winner, period.

I respect AI, I've read his biography, and I think he's one of the most talented players ever.
But I don't think he's the type to defer to another player in the long run. He's just too self-reliant for that. Part of his warrior personality seems to be that he believes that he himself and alone should be the key to his team's success.
And so far he's been everything but a winner in this league.

Don't get me wrong, I've said time and again that I really wish for this Nuggets team to work out and for Iverson finally to be successful. But I have serious doubts about that.
Oh, and he and Melo were really clicking, weren't they last night? That's what I told you before, expect them to be deferring to each other in the extreme the next few weeks.

Man, I gotta admit..... I was gettin jealous watchin those guys ball and excite the fans......

I think AI and Carmelo will be fine as long as the other players play their role and Karl keeps a level head

P.S

Glove 20 is hilarious

He is bragging about how he is always correct while wearing a chicago bears avatar...


guy is a nutball

based on what? theres nothing to base that opinion on. his time in philly? when he was THE MAN? had to shoot every time? had no one to pass to? hes never been in a position like this so those assumptions dont work at all.

I agree. That's why the Boykins trade was big, if you ask me. Getting a player like Blake who plays within his role and doesn't make stupid decisions will be key to making the tandem work. Throwing Boykins in there would just ruin it.

iverson had the hot hand but only took 16 shot attempts.

meanwhile, carmelo, who was quite rusty, went kobe style and jacked up 25 FGAs despite bricking most of them. (he only made 10 out of 25).

so whose team is it?

clearly, it's not the new guy.
