Warning: Miami Heat Don't Sign Iverson
I hope I don't come off as a scorned homer, but there is no reason the Miami Heat should even consider signing Allen Iverson. Ever since his departure from the Sixers last season there have been questions if the 14-year pro will return to the NBA.
Iverson himself is even getting in on the fun stating on his Twitter account...
@alleniverson: I want to return to the NBA this season, and help any team that wants me, in any capacity that they feel that I can help. I'm disappointed,
Allen you should be disappointed, and if you plan on returning to the NBA, Miami is the last place you should go.
I know it would be a great chance for him to finally win a title, but with the team that is consisting of LeBron James and D-Wade, having another ball controlling egomaniac is the last thing you want for team chemistry.
We all heard this story last year when A.I. joined the Grizzlies, the proclamation that he wants to be a team player and contribute in any role they want his...well that's all well and good for a little bit, but we all know when push comes to shove, A.I. will want the ball and to be the superstar and Miami has WAY to much of that right now.
I know that Allen dealt with many off the court issues last season and his return was mostly to boost the Sixers dismal attendance numbers. Even I will admit it was nice seeing him in Sixers garb once again, but after the smoke cleared I began to realize why we wanted to get rid of him in the first place.
This is the second time I have written this warning (the first time to the Sixers) , just like many things in sports we tend to look to the glory years to ease the tough decision.
Miami. don't do this to yourself. You're going to have enough problems with the Trio without dealing with The Answer.
