At this point in the season there is a rare opportunity to pick up a former MVP and league scoring champ. It is a risky proposition but Allen Iverson is sitting at home waiting for a call. Could an organization like the Suns handle AI well enough so that he would not be a distraction? Is AI now willing to be the back up point, 6TH man, instant offense guy that the Suns need? Surely he and his agent have gotten the message that he will have to adjust his expectations if he would like to catch on with an NBA team. This man is very much in need of a friend and an organization like the Suns.
I think the Suns organization is strong enough and Alvin Gentry is patient enough to handle Allen and turn him into a wonderful asset for the team. He can probably be added for about a million dollar salary.
