That has little to nothing to do with the lockout though.

On a side note I was reading that players signed to Chinese teams are not going to be able to get out of their contracts. This really hurts Denver with Kmart, chandler, and jr smith all signed in china. The only play that will be allowed to go back to the nba is YI!

Also the Chinese season ends early march which will surely make player signings for the playoffs crazy!

Now that's a depressing thought. Iverson sucked.

Iverson was to basketball shooting percentage what Mendoza was to batting average in baseball.

Remember when he shot Denver out of the playoffs a couple years ago?

People remember Iverson's 15-30 games for 35pts and a win. They forget the other two games where he shot 9-30 and they lost by 20pts. both times.

Perhaps the worst player to ever win the MVP....certainly in the bottom 2.

I believe he won the MVP because his performance led the sixers to being the number 1 seed in the East during the 2000-01 season who also managed to play well enough to give the Lakers their one and only loss in the playoffs that year.

They squeeked past the east with two separate 7-game series against such powerhouses as Milwaukee.

He took 162 shots in the finals against the Lakers...shooting a dismal 40% or so. Shaq only took 110 shots, the 2nd most of any player in the finals.

Would you atleast say he was one of the most entertaining NBA players of the 2000's?
