    Iverson traded to Denver

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061219/...verson_trade_2

    Looks like Iverson for Miller, Joe Smith (the most traded #1 pick ever) and a couple 2007 picks

    Re: Iverson traded to Denver

    Huh. George Karl decided he'd better bring in reinforcements to cover for Melo's suspension, I guess......

    It will be interesting when Melo is back to see how a team works with the #1 and the #2 scores in the NBA. When K-Mart gets healthy, it's not a bad lineup with Melo, AI, Kmart, Camby and (doesn't really matter). Lets see if they can have better chemistry than Kobe, Shaq, Malone, and Payton.

    We'll see. This should be interesting, I'm not sure that it helps them with Melo out, you can almost see Iverson growing accustomed to the #1 role and not wanting to differ to Melo once he gets back. Karl will force the issue - it obvious Melo has to be the go-to guy at this point hes the francise.

    interesting.

    Re: Iverson traded to Denver

    Man...that team of Kobe, Shaq, Malone, Payton, and all the other Lakers cohorts should have been able to just dominate the playoffs that year. That team was the picture perfect example of how important team chemistry is.

    Re: Iverson traded to Denver

    I think with that lineup they should auction off the other spot to the highest bidder.

    A highest bidder that wants absolutely zero shot attempts.

    It helps that Camby doesnt shoot much.

    Re: Iverson traded to Denver

    That line up needs a Dennis Rodman type, only worries about rebounding and defense.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Cambys good when he's not hurt, K-Mart is good when he's not hurt.

    They complement each other well, K-Mart is the toughness, Camby is the shotblocker/ rebounder.

    But they're always hurt.

    Re: Iverson traded to Denver

    Camby is actually a solid defender. I think he plays that role very well.

    Re: Iverson traded to Denver

    That other spot will go to JR Smith, who I think will fit in great when he comes back off his suspension because he's such a good 3 point shooter.

    Re: Iverson traded to Denver

    I think Smith is part of the trade Bryce.

    Correction, It's Joe Smith in the trade. JR is going to fit well, you're right. Najera is also going to be a great fit off the bench. Now if they could only bring in Duncan or Garnett ;-)

    Re: Iverson traded to Denver

    This Denver team has all the weapons it needs to win a championship. But I really doubt all the egos will allow for it to happen. Karl better keep these guys under a microscope.

    They have both Joe & JR Smith - the Yahoo! article indicated Joe Smith was involved in the trade. JR is still with Denver

    They wish it was JR, looks like he's having a much better season.
