    6ft, gonna miss the guy, will wear my nuggets jersey tonight in my game warm up

    He was a great Basketball Player. And at 6 Foot, he was usually dwarfed by the other players, but he was usually faster and made a good player

    Yes, very sad news. His competitive streak and ability to break the ankles of much bigger players was legendary. Good to see someone brought this up here, micoo.

    nope just retired but he was the best "little" guy to ever play the game and one of the best of the last 15 years

    I'm a NBA fan.


    PRACTICE?

    HEH

    the guy can still play but no team wants him. He just refuses to practice or accept a bench role. He could just do what Gary Payton did but AI's attitude caused his own downfall.

    He'd be a great punch off the bench if he could accept that role...

    It's a real shame that he couldn't get a title before going out. I'd love to see him destroy Tyrone Lue one last time.

    haha :lol: tht was epic, theres no way he would take a reserve role but theres no team that can really give him the starting role he wants tht is actually a contending team, cavs maybe but do they have their MLE available? and even if he did go to cleveland, with lebron, shaq and AI on the same team there wouldnt be enough balls on the court lol

    One situation I can see happening (which won't happen) is if the Spurs' injury problems continue. If Parker goes down, and Manu continues to have struggles, AI would be the perfect offensive punch in the backcourt. He's definitely not good for their system though.

    I'd love to have him have a last crack in Philly. Why can't he fit there?

    ...oh yeah, and as for the Cleveland MLE situation, I'm not sure if they would have used that in one of the Leon Powe / Anthony Parker signings...
