    After hearing about how Allen Iverson turned down an opportunity to play for Dallas' D- League team because he felt it was beneath his talents because he feels that he should be a starter in the nba instead, there seems to be a lot of Miami Heat fans who think that Allen Iverson will make the Heat virtually unstoppable.  I honestly don't think it's a great idea.  No offense to Iverson, but his style of play wouldn't fit with the Heat's style, but that's just me. 

    However, what do you guys think?  You think A.I. should want to be on the Heat?  Should the Heat even want him to begin with?  Or do think I'm probably just crazy, and that the Heat would be damned fools not to want him?  What are your thoughts?

      Philadelphia is my favorite sports city, my family grew up from around that area so of course I love that team and even more so, Allen Iverson. I love how fearless he was and so forth, but his game is pretty much the same as Wade. Having two of the same player on a team that is ball-dominant is never a good idea. Wade and Lebron have worked well together solely because Wade has completed given the reigns to Lebron, paired with the fact that Wade is not the same player he once was. Wade was a better version of Iverson, and with age being an issue...Iverson might not even be a viable candidate for a team like the Bobcats.

    No! There would be no chemistry.

    No. A thousand times no. AI was the Answer a decade ago but his game depended on speed, ball control and willpower. His talent is long gone, evidenced by his inability to crack the starting rotation of an Israeli league time. His willpower is gone, evidenced by his quitting on that team (not to mention the Grizzlies, the Pistons, and the 76ers on his second go-round). And what team would want him to control the ball at this point? He can't distribute. What's worse is that he somehow still thinks that it's 2001 and that teams should bend to his will and not the other way around.

    AI is done. The sole thing he can offer a franchise these days is the ability to sell a few tickets. Since Miami already sells out every game, there's literally nothing he can offer that franchise.
