Get AI the value of your team goes up. If you don't you look cheap and nobody will want to play for you.
They're reporting that he may be taking his chips off the table. I couldn't see a better reason.
Jordan knows. Who wouldn't have signed a 34 or so year old Jordan?

I wonder if the potential sale is hindering any negotiations with Iverson.

I think we can all agree now as a city and blogosphere that it's now B. Johnson's put up or shut up moment.
We've heard this a million times for the past 5 years. Nothing's changed. Everytime Bob makes a positive move, there's 30 new ones he must make to prove he's not tryna rob us all blind. It wont be up to Bob whether AI comes here or not, it'll be up to AI. Bob could want him here all he wants but if AI dont wanna be here, guess what?

I dont think thats enough to lure AI. It might be, but I dont think that is the dealbreaker for Iverson as its been hyped up. If he comes here, I'll be happy, but Im not expecting miracles and Im not expecting us to become a better team because I dont see it. Dude is washed up and not the same player he was, and he's not the leader you want as the face of your franchise. Anything he brings to the table would be short term. There's a reason why only teams like the Grizz, us, the Clippers are even entertaining bringing him in.

That's the issue with playing time. Brown knows exactly what AI needs as far as PT and monetary respect go.
Brown said it's the money and the playing time. That's as blunt as you can get. IMHO I think the Felton issue is slowing things because of them not knowing but come on!?! He may not want to sign and get traded, who knows?
You own a team. Don't cry about it. Put up or shut up.
I'm tired of the media talking about it. I'm tired of hearing about it.
