Will Iverson Practice If He Joins The Bobcats?

Allen Iverson finds himself without a team, and rumors are circulating heavily that he may join the Charlotte Bobcats, reuniting him with Larry Brown his former coach with the Philadelphia 76ers. It's hard to believe that Brown would consider reuniting himself with Iverson. Perhaps he needs to see Iverson's infamous "Practice" rant that took place 3 years ago when Iverson was still arguably one of the top players in the NBA. Iverson is now coming off one of his least productive year as a pro, and quit on his former team the Detroit Pistons. He's apparently become so desperate that he went on a Twitter rant last week regarding how he's in such great shape.

While I love Iverson's talent and he's a sure fire first ballot Hall of Famer, it pains me that he hasn't adjusted his game with time and evolved as a more complete player. Iverson only goes with one direction and purpose and that's the the direction that serves him points instead of trying to make teammates better. Warning to Larry Brown, beware of what you ask for, and hopefully Michael Jordan will have the foresight to veto this possible move.
