If we got AI and lost Earl Boykins, I'd donate all my Christmas presents to charity, because that in itself would be the best present ever.

It'd be a Christmas miracle.

Of course there would be an outcry from children eleven and under all across the state of Colorado, but what are you gonna do? You can't please everyone.

Man this is going to be a huge letdown now if Denver's deal is not taken.

I really hope this doesn't turn into a disappointment. At first I tried not to get my hopes up. And now this talk of dealing Earl Boykins has just basically pushed me into oblivion. This better happen now.

I haven't got my hopes up at all, not a bit. They've let me down enough times when they were allegedly close to getting a big deal done that I'm not believing anything until it actually happens.

Clockwork, you hear anything more on your other sites. That one site you linked has that eric dude who must have inside info. He seems to have become quiet.

I haven't gotten to see a ton of Nugz games this season. Why is everyone so ridiculously down on Earl?

Nothing new. Though there's a guy on the RealGM 76ers board who claims to have inside connections (take it for what it's worth, the regulars there seem to believe he's legit) and he said earlier today that it's basically down to Denver and Minnesota.

Well this year he has been less than stellar shooting wise. Defense tends to take a hit with him in the lineup. Finally, he tends to take a lot of shots.

Rumors are cooking all over the net and on the Nuggets radio broadcast about the deal. Shimmel said something about a buzz in the building that the Nuggets landed AI. I agree with Rhyme, if they could get AI and get rid of Boykins it would be too good to be true. I hope this happens.

I don't think there is anyone in the world that wants Iverson to the Nuggets as much as me.

Don't get too excited. Reports are Minnesota is trying deperately to find a third team to swing a deal. We won't hear anything until Friday if Nene is involved. :crossed fingers:

I'll be a sad panda if the T'Wolves get him. I mean, if Denver doesn't get him that's one thing... but Minnesota? No good.

The thing is Minnesota has to get another team involved to get a deal done. They don't have much to offer except KG but that defeats the purpose of going after AI. Reading the realGM boards for Philly they are hoping against hope the Denver rumor isn't true. That eric guy hasn't posted on the nuggets site about the trade lately so I am not sure what to think now. Then O4L posts that the pregame on 950 said the Nuggets were a buzz as they were hearing that Denver landed Iverson. I guess only time will tell but again I am still leery.

someone posted that eric posted in another place that Portland nixed the Nene deal so now Denver must find another team willing to take on that contract. That roadblock is hard to overcome. Man losing out on AI would really suck. Maybe Melo can convince AI to say its Denver or nothing get it done.

Dallas could send them an expiring contract. I think that Dallas is interested in moving expiring deals.

If Nene and his huge contract hold this deal up, I wouldn't be surprised. That is going to be hard to move.

Minnesota will make a run (probably not Finals, but round 2 at least) with AI and KG if they can make this work. That could be a great combo.

And Eric should have known this from the get. Just because Portland has Jamal Magloire's expiring contract on their books, absolutely does not mean they ever wanted Nene. I told you it was bogus from the get.

Had Portland acquired Nene for Magloire, they would have three of the most untradeable contracts in the league on one team -- Darius Miles (9 mill a year), Raef Lafrentz (11 mill) and Nene (8 mill). Not only that, but they already have 6 legit low post players in Brian Skinner, Raef Lafrentz, Joel Pryzibilla, Zach Randolph, Jamal Magloire and Lamarcus Aldridge. They never wanted Nene.

The only reason Portland got in this mess is because somebody put two and two together and thought, "If Portland would take Nene, we could acquire AI. Sounds good."

My darkhorse for Allen Iverson -- The Miami Heat.

They have two expiring contracts in Jason Williams and James Posey that equals 14 million dollars plus two young players in Dorrell Wright and Wayne Semien. If they threw a first rounder in there, its ovah!

If the Heat acquire Allen Iverson, I might cry. That's not fair.

On FoxSports.com they have this section called Dime Smack which is written by the writers of Dime Magazine.

They put it best: "AI and D-Wade? Illegal."

That would be a nasty duo, and even though Shaq isn't shaq anymore, when he comes back they would be a force to reckon with.

I dont think that that would work. They are both ball-dominating two guards. If I am the Heat, I dont want Iverson anywhere near the ball when Wade is on the floor. Wade is a much more efficient player.

They perform the same role. Who is going to take the back seat?

Iverson will not give up the ball. I dont see that situation being beneficial for either the Heat or Iverson. Iverson just wants to win scoring titles. He's a career loser. Wade is the opposite.

I think Iverson gets a bad rap as a 'ball hog' because hasn't played with anybody. It's not like Iverson has been stealing shots from all-stars. Who is he suppose to pass the ball to?
