    Allen Iverson is extremely fun to watch play basketball. I've seen him play many times. The little man can take it to any big man, score 50 points with ease and get a crowd going with one play. Unfortunately, that does not win championships. I am not saddened at all that Iverson will not be a lowly Sixer anymore. It actually made me happy once I found out that the idiotic nuggets gave us Andre Miller, Joe Smith (who cares) and TWO, I repeat TWO first round draft picks. 3 first round draft picks in the upcoming draft brought a little excitement me, as I have not enjoyed the Sixers or the NBA of late. The future is looking bright.

    He is trouble, its like Dallas being all excited they got TO, wait till he gets to your city and brings the team down from day one. Philly talk radio is pretty happy about it, those two picks were key

    I knew TO was crap before he even landed with the Eagles, let alone Dallas.

    How about the Tuna saying "One of us won't be in Dallas next year".

    I love an 'it's him or me!', baby!

    The only downfall is that this year is going to be an absolute waste. But it should change quickly if they draft right, which historically they have not

    Yeah, I agree. Miller is an alright point guard but his numbers have been dwindling for a couple years. Plus, this will be his fourth team in eight years. Not exactly your franchise-type player. Having three picks in the first round of this year's draft is pretty sweet but not exactly a "dealmaker".

    Unfortunately the Sixers' hands were tied and they had to take what they could get. They were lucky Sissy 'Melo got suspended or else they'd still be without a deal.

    They should trade all three of their first round picks for the first pick overall (Oden).

    The two picks they got (are probably going to be in the 20s). Late first round picks are overrated -- even useful players in those rounds don't normally mate a big difference in the standings. It is the sixers own pick which will be valuable because they really stink

    77 catches for 1040 yards and 11 TD's.

    You gotta admit; that's a pretty good week!

    I'm telling you, he is going to do something stupid, especially if my eagles beat him again this week. He will bring down whatever team he is on.

    Philly fans suck; you turn on people at the drop of a hat. I still remember them booing Mike Schmidt.

    Owens had 9 catches for 122 yards in the Super Bowl for "your" Eagles. Did he bring them down that day?

    I am a New England fan who now lives in Denver.

    First of all what T.O. did in the Super Bowl was amazing and if the Eagles had won T.O. would most likely have been the MVP. He seemed to be the only guy that day actually playing and he was playing hurt after that injury.

    Second, AI coming to Denver looks like a great move for the Nugs since he likes to play a fast game, has a good relationship with the coach and averages 7 assists a game which means Melo will still be getting the ball. Andre Miller is a good player and has been popular here in Denver but he is not equal to one A.I. even with two first round picks thrown in.

    In fact if the Sixers were run right in the front office they would have made better use of previous drafts and got A.I. some quality around him so I don't see how all of a sudden the Sixers are going to stop making poor management decisions next year and draft some great players.
