Hey, A.I.: It's been a Blast
A.I.It's been a Blast
The try with A.I. is over. It was worth a shot, but in the end it just didn't work. The pieces didn't fit together, the chemistry not quite right. When the Nuggets first traded for A.I. you can count me among those who weren't sure it was a good idea. I just didn't think Iverson was capable of playing team ball and that he wouldn't be a good influence for a young maturing Melo. But Iverson grew on me and I came to respect him and his tenacity on the court. That said, I think Billups will be better in so many ways. He is a true point guard and knows what it takes to win. That makes a huge difference.
Trouble in Dove Valley
The thing the Broncos are missing the most of is they don't have enough guys on the roster who understand the commitment it takes to win championships. They don't have Rod Smith and players like him to be an example for guys like Brandon Marshall and Jay Cutler. Let me know what you think.
