So I'm sure I don't need a source because everyone NBA fan already knows about this and I don't want to put up a stupid link. Anyways, what do you guys think will happen and who will get him?

Garnett showed some interest, but dang, I knew this would come soon, but it'll still be weird to consider AI as anything but a sixer.

He'll either go to a team that
a) rebuilding
b) missing that final dynasty piece

..hopefully it'll be b)

I hope he goes somewhere he isn't the big star. All the attention has gone to his head.

Sixers won't trade AI to any teams in the East. Anyone with some basketball knowledge knows that. You don't trade an all-star/MVP type of guy to someone in your own conference. Teams with money and the talent to offer the 76ers in my opinion are the Mavs, Wolves, Lakers, Nuggets and possibly the Supersonics. Boston would be a good trade for AI but they're in the same conference so that's very unlikely.

Here's who I think the Mavs/Wolves/Lakers would have to give up (minimum):

Mavs: Devin Harris, Maurice Ager, and a first round draft pick + cash.

Wolves: Mike James, Randy Foye, and a first round pick + cash.

Lakers: Jordan Farmer or Smush Parker, Luke Walton, Andre Bynum, and possibly another 2nd rounder.

Nuggets: Andre Miller, JR. Smith, and Joe Smith

SuperSonics (Unlikely but possible): Luke Ridnour, Rashard Lewis and a second round pick and Sixers would give Savlik Randolph along with AI.

He has to touch the ball so much to be effective, if he went to Minnesota KG would get half the stats.

Boston is interested I was reading about it today. He will be a missing piece for this team I think. Someone to play along with Pierce. I don't know who they would give up, or who Phily wants.

KG will still put up his stats. His points might go down to maybe 17 per game but it's not that bad. It might not even go down. More than likely, KG will still get his 20 pts and for sure he'll still get his 10+ boards. AI might feed him better balls and he could do the same for AI. Iverson will take his 25-26 shots per game and KG takes about 16 per game. No NBA team takes less than 75 shots per game and no team takes more than 84 shot attempts per game. So give AI his 25-26 shots, KG will get his 16 shots per game and there's still about 28 more shots to go around. Look at the Wizards. Arenas is averaging 27.1 ppg, Butler is getting 17.8 ppg, Jamison with 17.7 ppg, and Stevenson is getting 9.6 ppg. So there's no way that KG won't be able to put up his same stats. KG isn't a volume shooter.

Boston can give the 76ers: Theo Ratliff's swollen salary before retirement, tough young interior player Al Jefferson, exciting young point guard Sebastian Telfair and a No. 1 pick. It's good for both AI and the 76ers but the Organization probably won't do it because they're in the same conference.

I dont think teams will have to give up that much for him, i mean it will be a pretty penny, but he is towards the end of him prime, and he wants out.


I think hes going to Boston, just a gut feeling.


Also, there is just about no place that would take him where he wouldnt be the star or StarA (next to melo or pierce or KG). Hes going to get attention wherever he goes

This is going to be VERY interesting.

Minnesota has said they can't afford him already but we'll see.

SuperSonics (Unlikely but possible): Luke Ridnour, Rashard Lewis and a second round pick and Sixers would give Savlik Randolph along with AI.
No way would the SuperSonics give up Ridnour and Lewis + All that other shit for AI... I mean seriously, Lewis is good and Ridnour is alright for a guy that's really only going DOWN? Nah..

I don't even like basketball and I know that he isnt worth a 1st round pick AND players anymore. It's debateable weather or not hes worth a 1st round pick.

Apparently, you've failed to realize that he's the league's leading scorer. A first round pick won't score 30+ ppg in their first season, unless their name is Carmelo Anthony or LeBron James. AI can make an immediate impact almost anywhere he goes.

:hilarious: yeah fucking right, AI is a great player but we won't trade our two future stars, a decent/under-rated PG and Luke who's starting to play to his potential for an "old" great player, HELL NO. :confused:quint: you got to be joking, that's a fucking rip-off...

EDIT: this coming from someone who likes AI FYI

Apparently, you've failed to realize that he's only making like 45% of his shots.

Ok dude. You act like you own the Lakers or something with your "we won't trade our two future stars...." line. BTW, the Lakers probably won't get AI anyhow but if they did, you get an automatic championship contender there. Put AI with the Wolves and you get an automatic contender as well. It's that simple, give AI another star and they're contending. You obviously don't know sports.

Here's to Villian and bsquared:

You, of all people, should know what a great player is worth. While AI isn't a Shaq, he's also not as old as Shaq was when Shaq was traded and AI is actually in his prime while Shaq was in the decline. Last year was AI's best year to date. And the Lakers traded Shaq away for Lamar Odom, Caron Butler, Brian Grant AND a first round draft pick. That shows that you both don't know shit about basketball, trades, and the actual value of players. AI will give you 5 great years while who knows what will happen to Walton, Parker or Farmar. AI is worth two decent young player and a no.1 draft pick.

I only said it that way because i'm a lakers fan and they're my team, do you know what i am saying? Automatic championship contender? yeah right, it depends on the team, T-Wolves suck and they don't have enough supporting-cast to be a championship-contender, hahah, if you trade him to a team with a fairly good team (not one player) then maybe they can but another aspect to consider is how the stars will play together, you think both stars will be their best considering the fact that they'll be touching the ball alot less? Hah, what ignorance from your part. :rollseyes

Can't see A.I. on a team with Kobe:motz_6: ! Egosville. The Lakers don't need that type of player anyway. He takes a lot of shots. TOO DAMN MANY.

While AI isn't a Shaq, he's also not as old as Shaq was when Shaq was traded and AI is actually in his prime while Shaq was in the decline.
Ha ha hahhh ahhh! Please. Shaq has a handful of championship rings cause he got boards, blocked shots and scored (no not at the line). Iverson is not Shaq...... your DAMN right. We have Kobe, and I for one as a Lakers fan don't want A. I. in L.A. I hope Phil Jackson isn't serious in being interested.

Would he fit in Boston. Denver...hmmmm, or maybe Indiana could use him.

He'll put butts into seats anywhere he goes that is for sure.
