Love Him or Hate Him, We May Soon Know the Answer

 

It appears that a deal for Allen Iverson may be imminent. Within the hour A.I. (@alleniverson) has Tweeted the following:

My people just informed me that we are getting close to a deal. I asked them to call me the when its done. I am   so ready to know!

I have not been this eager with anticipation since the night before the NBA Draft in 96. Then I knew where I was going, now I want to know!

I have been blessed to make plenty of money in this league. Now it's not about the money, its about playing me getting back on the court &playing every game like its my last! Stay tuned.

The last quote A.I. provides intrigues me. There has been a lot of discussion here on whether the C's should sign Iverson. Most critics have claimed that A.I. wants to sign for at least the mid-level and will not sign for less.  This quote makes me wonder would he consider a minimum deal for a chance to win a title. I believe A.I. would thrive in this environment. He would have a one-year window to re-establish his value and go back on the market in 2010. My belief is a team that loses out in the 2010 FA Derby would consider bringing in A.I. if he can re-establish his value. Before you say no way, think back. What were your thoughts when the name Stephon Marbury first came up?Discuss amongst yourselves!
