He sure helped the Pistons out, and the Nuggets went straight downhill without him.
I think that is an unfair arguement. Granted the Nuggets did surge once he left, that was more do to the fact they brough int Chauncy and the role he filled. The Nuggets needed a vetern point guard. We all know A.I. is a scorer first. He didnt fit with that team from day one.
As for Detriot, they have been on the decline all year long and that was inevitalbe coming off their recent run.
I would love to have A.I. go to the Bobcats for the next couple years. He is a proven scorer and Larry Brown knows how to use him the best, see Philly tenure.
Sure, he is at the end of his career, but he is going to help score points for this team (which they need bad) and bring more money in for this franchise (which they also need bad).
Will he win a championship in Charlotte? Probably not, but he will help this franchise make the playoffs and put some life in it. All the while, the Bobcats can begin to look for his replacement over the next couple years.
