Some of the comments in this thread are pretty comical. It's obvious a lot of people have no idea what type of player AI is, how he's matured over the years, and what he's going mean to this city and team.

Anyways, he used to be my favorite player of all time in any sport that didn't play one of my teams. Now Allen Freaking Iverson plays for the Nuggets. I could not be more stoked, and I'm definitely going to try to go to the next couple games.

BILLY KING IS AN IDIOT.

The Sixers clear 16 million off their cap after this season (Smith's 6.8 + 10 million difference between AI and Miller) And something like 26 million when Webber's contract expires the following year.


Besides, most of the Sixers good players were late 1st 2nd round type picks.

One think King has done OK is work the draft a little.

Seems to me like you are not addressing the fact that Melo, AI and JR could be lethal together. every championship team has had at least 2 guys that commanded the ball and that could take over a game. AI get to play along side the first superstar of his career.

I dont like the deal because I dont like Iverson. Now I have to see his sideshow act 2 more times a year. Also, I like Anthony and I like the city of Denver. Now Iverson's thuggish mug will be included on Denver oriented sports sites that I visit. I wish he would have stayed on the east coast, and out of the spaces that I visit, but I have no control over that. I can laugh at him though.

Iverson has matured?



Sounds like alot of wishful thinking to me. Good luck with that.

Still not enough to get under the cap until Webber leaves.

So they will be mediocre this year and next...and with JUST enough talent not to tank especially in the awful Atlantic.

The one reason i don't see this working out is because of George Karl.

I think it's possible that Carmelo and Iverson could co-exist. It's not really probable, but possible. Sure, at first they will be like any new couple. ESPN will eat it up. We'll see what happens

But George Karl couldn't even get along with Ray Allen or Sam Cassell. How on earth will he handle AI? On paper, this is really something to be excited about for Nuggets fans. If you make this trade on NBA Live '07 you're golden. But i think this was the wrong move for Denver to make. We'll see.

Yeah on the Karl angle. It's why he wanted to keep Miller rather than JR. With Miller he could still control the game, but with "the answer" at PG ..... God only knows, and he prolly has no clue as to what AI will do ... other than put it up. The RMN says they're thinking about bringing in a vet PG anyway, and moving "the answer" to SG. How they match up defensively then, I dunno. But maybe it'll be a return to English/Kiki and who needs D, but with Karl I don't think so.

Karl has wanted melo to move w/o the ball more and more, but with the lack of a no.2 guy with K-Mart being a no show, that's been on hold. Assuming "the answer" isn't at PG, they can now run set plays for melo cutting with "the answer" keeping teams from being able to just collapse and force Den to shoot from outside. "the answer" is indeed maybe the answer, cause no doubt he can shoot. We'll see whether he wants to win a championship.

Money wise it looks like Stan's making up the luxury tax with added tix sales ... he makes money on everything he does, cause if a move doesn't make money, he doesn't make the move. It's tenatively a two year deal to win a champrionship. After 'the answer's" contract is up after next season, Stan'll have to rethink.

heck of a trade. Miller's a decent PG, but Smith is .... old. And the two no1 picks are late ones. Besides Miller all Den gave up was money, and they don't lack that.

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.
ps, I think the shots come from JR and Camby, but, hopefully, with teams not being able to collapse on melo in the half court game, his shooting% will increase, so he may be happy to put more energy into D and become the total and great player he has the potential to become.

Jamal Mashburn comes off after this season also, that's another 11 million I believe.

you know, nobody mentioned what I want most for this whole thing. That is for Those 2 crusty old bastards George Karl and Doug Moe (especially Moe) to win a championship. Ive always loved the hell out of Moe, since I was like 6 years old, and Karl deserves a retirement ring. Its gonna be a hoot watching them coach this team now. If Martin comes back next year, and they dont have any major injury problems, they have all the talent they need to win a title.

And the great thing about this whole deal is that we now have something to REALLY keep us entertained during the offseason.

Personally, I rewarded the Nuggs by getting 3 5 game holiday packs when I usually only go to 1, maybe 2 Nuggs games per year.

Yay Denver!!!!!

So glad this blizzard hit today. Probably going to have to eat the tickets for tonight's game and there's no guarantees AI will be here yet anyway.

We may luck out thanks to this blizzard. It wouldn't shock me to see the game get postponed.

Damn good thing. Iverson wasn't likely to play, which would have left the Nuggets with a starting lineup of Boykins, Diawara, Kleiza, Nene & Camby.

Let it snow, let it snow......
