Philadelphia Still No Answer For The Answer

The Jim Rome Show asked it listeners what should it do with the Philadelphia basketball team. You probably noticed that all teams in its division have done some makeover . Drastic in the case of Toronto Raptors and key upgrades in the case of Boston Celtics and New Jersey. On the ongoing saga of trading ' The Answer ' , Allan Iverson. David Alridge of NBA TV , thinks that parting with AI will be a mistake . ' Trading the 2nd highest scorer in the NBA and who has more assist than ever is lunacy '.
Coach Calipari , appearing in The Best Damn Sports Show Ever is for trading AI although he ' puts bodies on the seats and that the Sixers management must insure there is no let down after the trade .'
The added problem is that the Sixers management appears so desperate to trade AI . ' It's a sellers' market ' is how Jim Rome puts it. Denver , Boston and Golden State are interested but seem unwilling to give equal value player(s) in return for AI. I am sure they do not want to commit the same mistake as Rob Babcock in case of Vince Carter. AI is now resigned to the change of address and reportedly said ' maybe this trade is not a bad thing '. Anyway , back to the calls to Mr. Rome.

1 one caller said that the Sixers get back GM Pat Croce who led the team in the Finals vs. the Lakers.Otherwise , perhaps have the whole team in his TV show !
2. one caller said that Philadelphia has not won anything since the American Revolution.

Boy o boy , Philly is really in a mess. I'd say Philly better get back Terrell Owens . Not to play football , but to complete the mess !

TO : Now that's heroic !

Philly needs a complete overhaul from management to the players. It just not right .There was no harmony last season.
The entry of Webber did not help !

Nice post. I think Philly needs a change . It used to be a fun plce to play and watch b'ball . I remember visiting the place one time and I had a blast in their place. It's a lunch pail crowd and they deserved a good b'ball team.

AI is Philly. I don't know how the Sixers will fare without him . Too bad the days of stars playing for one team until the end of their playing days are over .
