Iverson to Detroit

Denver decided to trade Allen Iverson to the Detroit Pistons for Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyees and Cheikh Samb Monday and made it official yesterday. WHAT!? Lucky Detroit.

Billups is a great guard and perhaps the combination will be better than Iverson’s skill alone. Still, this is hardly a championship caliber team and the payout ($$) will likely not match the rewards.

Back to the man at hand. AI is in a contract year, so perhaps he’ll pull a Burrell and step his game up to the next level. He’s never been the ideal team-player, but with Rasheed Wallce, Rip Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince and Rodney Stuckey fiening for the ball also, he may just have to learn to play nice.

As far as the trade: Pistons: 1; Nuggets: 0.
