That's the thing, Kroenke has been trading away draft picks to avoid paying the luxury tax forever. Have no doubt of this.
But with Iverson, Kroenke has to say hello to the luxury tax for the next three years AT LEAST. Thats a HUGE move for him. Huge.
He goes from making money, to losing money. The Nuggs might be the object of his affection, but everybody has a breaking point. I seriously doubt he wants to take money out of his own pocket to watch the Nuggs for the next three years.
