We know these are the dog days of August when there is little NBA news, but suggesting that the Nets take a chance on Allen Iverson?
Fran Blinebury of NBA.com lists New Jersey as one of five possible landing spots for Iverson who after 14 years on the circuit can't find a home. Blinebury believes Iverson would give the Nets' star power: "Why not give the fans a reason to drive a few extra exits down the turnpike to Newark to watch Iverson try to turn back the clock and work his old magic?"
Why not?!? We could list a lot of reasons--and get our dander up about the Nets not needing retreads. But instead, we'll just note something Blinebury didn't-- the the man who'd decide whether to hire A.I. is named Billy King. 'Nuff said.
