Iverson is already mad

Grizzlies Kings Basketball

“I had no problems with the hamstring.  I had a problem with my butt sitting on that bench for so long.  Go look at my resume and that will show you that I’m not a sixth man,” Iverson said. “I don’t think it has anything to do with me being selfish. It’s just who I am. I don’t want to change what gave me all the success that I’ve had since I’ve been in this league.”  This fine AI talk came after missing the first three games while recovering from a partial right hamstring tear, he was a reserve last night, scoring 11 points in less than 18 minutes.

I love the way he talks, last year when the Pistons benched him he said, “I would rather retire then come off the bench”.  Not easy being a great player getting older.  A few months back I wrote how Iverson would take the Grizzlies to the playoffs, /?p=1280but the man can’t do it while coming of the bench.  He needs to start, playing time and the ball to be successful.
