    If you were the coach how would you handle Iverson

    Iverson refused to play when he was told that he would not be starting. How would you handle the situation if you were the coach?

    You're aware this is 4 years old...right?

    Anyways, I'd be inclined to get rid of him. Now and 4 years ago.

    History repeats itself.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGDBR2L5kzI"]YouTube - Iverson Practice![/ame]

    I guess this is why he thinks practice isn't important. They should have seen this coming. Detroit is probably already trying to figure out how they can unload him.

    Re: If you were the coach how would you handle Iverson

    Another guy I can't stand right now is Stephon Marbury.

    Wednesday was the second time in 6 days that he refused to play although the Knicks were down to 8 players.

    Isn't that a breech of contract, and thus voiding it? I know the players association would never let that go, but come on.

    Re: If you were the coach how would you handle Iverson

    Haha i think the marbury is kind of a funny situation. If they're going to bench you for no other reason than they dont like you, then good make their plan backfire and say no. Yes its very childish and theres no way he should be getting paid to do it, but the fact that its a big joke to him when they only want him when they need him is kind of humerous

    Re: If you were the coach how would you handle Iverson

    The Marbury situation is silly. I agree with IOWASTATE, they said he didn't fit into their plans and they didn't want him to play. But when they are down to two guards because they are trading players away like the Plague the call on him. I would tell them to stick it too.

    Re: If you were the coach how would you handle Iverson

    Iverson and Marbury are 2 guys that are talented but both can be royal pain in the rear sometimes. Iverson at least is a gamer and will help you win some games and has that desire but he can be a little selfish at times. Marbury is just plain selfish and has never won anything where he's been in the NBA as well as been labeled a cancer which is why the Knicks are never going to be able to trade him and that fat salary of his.

    Both need to have their moms just smack them upside the head and knock some sense into them.

    Maybe the Knicks and Pacers can trade headaches. Marbury for Tinsely.

    Re: If you were the coach how would you handle Iverson

    You don't play you get fined by the team. You don't play to your potential you get fined from your team. If you still don't play you lose the salary for that game, till you play. Then when the season is over, you get put on the block. If noone signs you you lose all of your income for the remainder of the years due and get cut, or you straighten up and play like you get paid to do. Players union would object, but then again read my pro salaries post

    Here's our answer...no pun intended (it's for Marbury anyway):

    Marbury suspended, docked about $400,000 by Knicks - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

    LOL i love how the knicks suspend marbury for 1 game. Yea that'll show him, suspend him for 1 game when a) you dont want him to play or b) he tells you to shove off when you tell him to play. Haha what a big joke im sure this will really straighten him out
