        He had a big falling out with management as did chris webber!


        Also philly are looking 2 rebuild and wanted to get Iverson and his huge salary off their books.


        Denver should push now they have the leagues top 2 premier scoring players!!!


        And the much unheralded Marcus Camby is back from injury. Do u remember how awesome he was with the knicks a few years ago?

          I was very much into bball back in the day...both as a player and fan...been to many nba games over the years...but dont watch too much of it anymore...


          Camby was a very hot and cold player,much like the knicks a few years back...


          AI used to be Mr Philli, hence my surprsie as his departure...actually got to play with him in a camp in the states,about 9 years ago now...

            Balls, I had hoped to get to the '76er's Cavs game in April and was looking to watching Iverson playing. At least LeBron will be on show. Anyone the story with the playoffs? I'm in Noo Yawk the following week and had hoped to catch a Knicks game at MSG but the regular season is over.

              The knicks are currently eight games under .500 in the worst division in the league. There will be no playoff action in MSG for a while..........


              Iverson got tired of losing and the sixers got tired of him whining, messing up the team spirit(he asked for a trade)and paying his huge salary so they traded him for cap space and a pass first point guard. They also bought out chris webber (38 million for nothing, nice deal Chris). Sixers are effectively tanking it this season for a good spot in the draft. Greg Oden and Kevin Durant are two probable franchise playerswho should be up for grabs this year.This years draft is ridiculously deep.


              Camby wasnt that special at the knicks, he's come on an awful lot now, pulls down 12 boards a game and is a great shot blocker, a bit injury prone as always. Still dont see denver winning it this year. They made a very smart move in getting steve blake in though.Hes a pass first, decent % shooter that will get the ball to people in the right spots. AI is more of a two guard.Nuggets will be a tough team to beat but hey; have to get past phoenix, dallas, spurs etc.


              If you like basketball at all try and check out some phoenix suns, theyre great to watch. Withnash, marion and stoudamirerunning theyre killing teams now. You can see highlights of games on nba.com.


              Dirk deserves a starting spot but will get voted in by the coaches, ditto steve nash (theyre both looking at possible MVP awards this season).

                  Celtics Hold On to Beat Lakers 108-102, Take 2-0 Series Lead
                  One game after being carried off the floor following a scary — but ultimately insignificant — knee injury, the Celtics forward scored 28 points to lead Boston to a 108-102 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers and a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven NBA finals.
                  Pierce hit a pair of free throws with 23 seconds left after Los Angeles cut a 24-point deficit to just two points, 104-102. The Lakers tried a quick 3-pointer, but Pierce partially blocked Sasha Vujacic's shot to protect the lead.
                  Pierce also had eight assists and four rebounds.
                  The captain and longest-tenured member of the team, Pierce was carried off the floor by teammates after colliding with Kendrick Perkins under the basket during the third quarter of Game 1. He rode a wheelchair the rest of the way to the locker room, but once he got there he realized he wasn't that hurt after all.
                  Coming back into the game — he missed only 1 minute, 45 seconds — he drained back-to-back 3-pointers to give the Celtics the lead for good as they coasted to a 98-88 victory.
                  But in the sequel the only one Pierce was hurting was the Lakers.

                    Boston One Win from Banner 17


                    They trailed by as many as 24 points, but the Celtics staged an epic rally at the Staples Center on Thursday night to win Game 4, 97-91, and they stand on the brink of their 17th NBA Championship as they lead the NBA Finals 3-1.


                    Paul Pierce played lock-down defense on league MVP Kobe Bryant, holding him to just 17 points on the night. Meanwhile, Pierce scored 15 of his 20 in the third quarter rally as the Celtics cut an 18-point halftime lead to just two points at the end of the third. They then outscored the Lakers 26-18 in the fourth to seal the victory.


                    The Celtics will try to close out the series and win the championship in L.A. Sunday night at Staples Center in Game 5.

                          Paul Pierce: His time has come [img]smileys/biggrin.gif[/img]





                          @@@@SPAN =articleBegin>A@@@@/SPAN>t this time a year ago, Paul Pierce [stats] basically wanted out of Boston.


                          Selected 10th overall in the 1998 draft, he had blossomed into an All-Star alongside Antoine Walker, leading the Celtics [team stats] to an Eastern Conference final in 2002.


                          But as the Celtics got younger and younger - and dropped further and further in the standings - Pierce’s frustration grew. His championship clock was ticking and he didn’t feel like babysitting a rebuilding effort.


                          Then Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett arrived and suddenly the Celtics were contenders. And Pierce was their captain.


                          He totally bought into the team concept, happily sacrificing his scoring average and playing time for wins, the only stat that matters. He memorably sat on the bench while the reserves took control of a late-season showdown against the Pistons.


                          Pierce still made his sixth All-Star team, averaging a team-best 19.6 points per game. He only topped 30 points seven times during the regular season, when the Celtics rarely needed his scoring outbursts to prevail.


                          A typically selfless game came on Nov. 16 against the Heat. The C’s blew a 15-point fourth quarter lead, so Pierce muscled in the game-winning layup with 25 seconds left. He finished with 12 points.


                          The playoffs brought a need for the Pierce of old. With points harder to come by, Pierce did what he had to do, whether it was scoring 41 in a historic showdown with LeBron James to clinch Game 7 against Cleveland or coming back from what momentarily looked like a devastating knee injury during a 15-point third quarter in Game 1 against the Lakers.


                          The player memorably nicknamed “The Truth” by Shaquille O’Neal had confirmed a truth of his own - winning feels a whole lot better than anything else.


                          “A year ago I thought I’d never make it to the NBA Finals with the Celtics,” Pierce said. “It was tough times, going through tough seasons, and I didn’t know if I wanted to come back.


                          “But boy, how quickly things change.”

                              Duhon Is Added, Signaling End for Marbury [img]smileys/wink.gif[/img]</NYT_LINE>


                              Chris Duhon has agreed to a two-year deal with the Knicks, paving the way for the franchise to cut ties with Stephon Marbury, their troublesome starting point guard.


                              Whether Marbury will be traded, bought out of his contract or simply waived is yet to be determined. But people with close ties to Donnie Walsh, the team president, and Coach Mike D’Antoni consider Marbury’s departure a near certainty.


                              Those briefed on the matter spoke anonymously because the discussions were private, and because the subject has apparently not been broached with Marbury.


                              But the Knicks’ intentions were evident in their recruiting of Duhon. As part of his sales pitch, Walsh all but offered him the job as starting point guard.


                              Kevin Bradbury, Duhon’s agent, said, “For Chris, the opportunity to be a starting point guard, to have the opportunity to be the starting point guard for the Knicks, to play in New York and to play in D’Antoni’s system” was too good to pass up.


                              The decision was made Thursday, after Duhon spoke with Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash, who, like Duhon, is represented by Bill Duffy Associates. Nash had only modest success before joining the Suns, then became a two-time most valuable player under D’Antoni.


                              “Steve said so many great things about D’Antoni and what D’Antoni did for his career,” Bradbury said.


                              Even before signing Duhon, the Knicks had resolved that they could not move forward while Marbury was still in the locker room. In their brief time with the franchise, Walsh and D’Antoni have learned how incredibly unpopular Marbury is with his teammates.


                              Duhon, who chose the Knicks over Orlando, will sign for the midlevel salary-cap exception, which is expected to be close to $6 million for the coming season. His two-year deal could be worth $11 million to $12 million.


                              Precise figures cannot be set until Wednesday, after the league completes its salary-cap calculations and lifts its annual moratorium on deals. The Knicks are not permitted to comment until then.


                              Duhon, a second-round pick by Chicago in 2004, spent his first four N.B.A. seasons with the Bulls, averaging 6.9 points and 4.5
