sad it has come to this,
i remember at one point iverson single handily carried the sixers all the way to the finals and single handily gave thw lakers their only loss in the play-offs that year in game 1.
but once you burn some bridges you can't fix them, i heard too many stories of how A.I would be gambling till 5-6 am in the morning, skipping practice and team doing nothing cuz he'd drop 30 out there easily. But eventually that will get under a team/coach's skin especially as age catches up and your production deteriorates.
one of the greatest athletes of our time though, i went to school around his area and if he didn't make the nba he would have been in the nfl for sure. Better high school prospect than Vick as a QB, they played him on defense one year and he broke the school record with like 6 interceptions in a game.
