Hello Sactown Royalty,
I made you my new home for online Kings talk a few months back and I love it here. I want to contribute in a positive fashion. After having an unneccesary definition spat with LPA, and my first fanpost actually being a duplicate (RE: OKC/MIA Draft Trade) I want to apologize, ask for forgiveness and consider this now my second chance at making a better first impression upon the community.
I love the Kings. I've been watching them since about 1988. I feel that my basketball knowledge is, at the very least, par for the course and that outside of my senseless humor that I can participate amongst the ranks here.
Enough about me, I waited all day to make sure that I didn't make an A.I. post with another one being here already.
So here we are, 07/06/2010 and Allen Iverson has tweeted that he wants another chance. He does not want to leave the game the way he did. He says he owes it to himself, the league, and his fans.
After the jump I would like to entertain the thought.
Would Allen, could Allen, should Allen be a Sacramento King?
So, I'm still hungover from the NBA draft. I absolutely LOVE where Petrie has this organization in the present. My brother and I are going halves on the Summer League Broadband pass. I need a fix and I need it now.
We all know that the Kings could use another guard for their rotation. After the endless lists of mediocre guards and one extremely complex and informative list of all guards (sans Iverson), it is pretty obvious that this is an area that needs to be addressed on the roster.
If Iverson were willing to play in Sacramento, on a one to three year contract for 5 million or less per year, I would do it. For me, in order for the contract to be "right" however, it would need to have incentives to protect the Kings from any changes of heart that he may have about playing here with the Kings only guaranteeing a smaller portion (2-3 million) of each year.
Where does he fit?
I'm not really sure, maybe he starts at PG. Maybe he's our first guard off bench.
We already have the best finisher at the rim since Allen Iverson in Tyreke Evans. Why not bring Allen in too?
Do you think that Tyreke can learn anything from Allen? Do you think that Allen would be the right person to mentor Tyreke?
Do you think that Allen Iverson is a worse option than some of the other guards being proposed as potential pickups?
What do you think?
Is he the Answer?
