I'm watching every Nugg game that comes on TV from now on. What a freaking steal. Nobody realizes how good this guy is. He might averaged 12 assists per game playing for the Nuggs.

What a deal.

Andre Miller and two late firsts for one of the best athletes of our generation. **** billy king. ****'em. He's an idiot.

Oh well, the bright side is the Celtic's don't have to face Greg Oden for the next 15 years because Billy King royally screwed that franchise. I hope they never fire that mutha****a. Say hello to the 10th pick of the draft you stupid son of a b****.

Thankfully they did not. AI/JR backcourt. Oh yeah!

Boynkins off the bench! Finally Denver will run again! Miller was too slow to run the point. He could've built Coors Field all by himself with all the bricks he tossed.

Okay, here's the interesting question. Who gets the shots?

Anyone familiar with the NBA knows that Iverson is an unapologetic volume shooter, who has a high usage rate (5th in the NBA) - meaning he has to have the ball in his hands most of the time, and he ends up shooting much of that time. For instance, Iverson shot the ball 24.4 times a game while in Philly this season. He made 10 of those for .413%, which isnt a good %. Now, the Sixers shot the ball 78.0 times a game. That means that Iverson took roughly 1/3 of the sum total shots of the entire team.

Carmelo Anthony shoots the ball 24 times a game as well. Denver shoots about 86 shots a game.

The Nuggets surely cant survive with those two guys taking a combined 48/86 shots a game, well over 50 % of the total. That would mean that Camby and JR Smith's shots would be reduced as well. I dont know if both of those players would be alright with taking 3-5 less shots a game.

I'm thinking he goes for the jersey trifecta, or at least states that he will be getting home, away and alternate AI jerseys.

What a steal.

Hats off to the Nuggets.

I have more respect for Melo after what he did in New York. Standing up for your teammates is not being a thug. And Karl is the perfect coach for AI.

Nice to have two sports teams again in Denver. I've given up on the Rockies, but the Avs will rebuild.

It's not going to matter to Camby at all. He's not concerned with scoring at this point of his career, although last night proved he can still get his if he needs to.

I have not gotten my jersey yet. New Year's Eve though, I'll get one.

And it's funny that a Charger fan of all people would call Iverson a thug. Yeah, he's a thug. Go back to your team full of guys getting arrested, driving drunk, and taking steroids.

Just like Clockwork said, hate away, I'm too busy doing backflips here.

For the last time, Iverson has never played on a team with decent scorers.

How did Jet Terry handle going from over 20 a game with the Hawks to playing with Dirk and Howard? And that guy isn't even a pass first PG.

Get a grip.

I agree. **** those who hate on the Nuggets. Jealous bunch of numbnuts, I say....

The article implied that Denver would get one or two others as well as Iverson?

Frankly, it wil lbe interesting to watch how this all pans out. If the Nuggets get a bit further in the playoffs, then it would have been worth it. But the way to build the team is through the draft. Maybe the new GM has a different idea....

Nah dude, Rod Smith is cool. As one 'Maner wrote on this very board once: "Rod Smith didn't beat his wife, he just got into a bad situation."

I need the definitive word from Nuggets4...

Sorry about 'Dre, though. But you still have the other "Dre.....

But all in all an excellent and timely move. Maybe the playoffs won't slip away this year.

Huge pick up for the Nuggets, the Northwest is now theirs to win. The Jazz dont have anyone that can defend Iverson, maybe in a couple of years with Sloan teaching D-will, but not now.

Great pick up for you Nugg's fans, it will be interesting to see how the #1 & #2 league scoring leaders develop chemistry.

BTW, no way does that 3 way trade go down with Utah and Boston Clockwork. You really think the Jazz would have given up Boozer for Wally, that trade held no weight with the Jazz front ofice.

Hopefully this is the last time that you say that, because its nonsense.

Jason Terry dreamed of playing with a contender, and specifically with Dallas. Comparing the two is pointless because Terry has a completely different mindset about basketball. You are kidding yourself if you think Iverson is willing to give up shots to come off of the bench, like Terry happily volunteered to do in his first season with Dallas. Iverson doesnt even have the integrity to take practice seriously. What makes you think that he's going to make decisions that hurt his legacy (ppg average) for the betterment of the career of Carmelo Anthony?

Iverson has never been a team player. Not even on the US natl. team. He wont take a backseat to anyone. He thinks that he's Micheal Jordan, but he doesnt understand that MJ was a winner and Iverson is a career .500 player.
