Grizzlies fall in OT Iverson gripes
I was wrong about Allen Iverson. I gave him too much credit. I bought into his offseason talk about just wanting to play somewhere for the love of the game. When he signed here, I bought his statement that he would do whatever the team needed him to do. His caveat, of course, was that the team had to win games. Four games, and three losses, into the season, we have our first disgruntled Iverson outburst. Iverson now says he is not a bench player, not a sixth man, and he doesn’t want to change anything about himself. I’m sure someone has videotape of him saying the opposite, and I would love to see his reaction to viewing that. But we knew this would happen eventually. It’s his nature. I am just surprised it has happened so soon. Iverson has played on bad teams before. He just can’t fit his ego around the fact that he is not the star in town.
