Allen Iverson had publicly spoke about how going to Detroit was the worst career move he ever made and how that they lied to him. Apparently he is saying that Michael Curry lied to him about the fact that he would always been a starter and not come off the bench. If you all remember it didn’t exactly go that way next year. The Pistons were struggling and Michael Curry was in fear of losing his job. In my humble opinion the trade for Iverson was the worst in Pistons franchise history. We lost one of the best players that Detroit has ever had and we got rid of him for a ball hog who destroys the mentality of every team he has ever been on.
As a Pistons fan I can personally tell you that I am very happy he is no longer on the team. The Pistons have a new look, a new team and a new attitude. The Pistons still have Tayshaun Prince, Rip Hamilton, Jason Maxiell, and Rodney Stuckey. The Pistons also added Ben Gordon, and Charlie Villanueva to the fold. I think the Pistons will be a good team but I don’t think they will be a contender. They are in rebuilding mode right now and I will give it two years and they will be back in contention. Stay tuned for more because the Pistons open up the season against Iverson and the Grizzlies. I for one cannot wait to see what happens there. The season starts on Oct. 27th. Basketball is here but more importantly Detroit Basketball is back!
