As good as Iverson is, he's 31, has a history of injuries and a fat contract. No one is going to sell the farm for him and obviously that's what King was banking on someone doing.
I didn't see it coming... I mean I sort of did... I expected the Sixers would find a way to deal him, but I guess it's not that surprising that they didn't, for the reasons you mentioned.
