    I highly doubt that he is. It's the exact opposite, IMO.

    Ainge will watch his team going probably at least into conf. semifinal. Then he will sleep very well after having a thought of switching Baynes to Hayward in the starting lineup next season.

    I think Allen Iverson may have had this label.

    That's an interesting one, but I don't think he ever really changed his game that much. He just happens to be an all-time great so he could overcome that style.

    Iverson's rookie year he attempted 19.8 shots a game and averaged 7.5 assists.

    His career averages in those stats: 21.8 shots a game and 6.2 apg.

    My point was Allen Iverson was once considered a selfish basketball player but no one wanted to win more than him so he sort of escaped this category for me. You are right he did not change his game.

    That's fair. But if the Suns are going to play Brandon Knight at point guard I want him to change his game hahaha

    Probably right because you'd be left with a bunch of egos, declining and injured talent and no obvious leader that would inevitably lead to bad on-court chemistry, but that's not the whole story - there IS talent there that:

    1. Will fall gladly fall into role-playing line behind LeBron.

    2. Would make a pretty good roster elsewhere e.g. IT, Booker, Crowder, Love and a steel chair at centre (a defensive one at least), with Korver (still doing his marksman thing / he definitely hasn't fallen off a cliff statistically) and Wade off the bench (18ppg last season) is likely a playoff team assuming IT gets back to where he was before.


    So not an entirely clear cut statement, I don't think.

    I was referring to the Celtics great PG Tiny Archibald.

    Me too. His name is Nate. That’s why I called Ulis Not.

    I'm not sure that that team is any better than the current Suns.

    A point guard of IT’s calibre, plus Love over Bender or Chriss?

    It’s better.

    Again, we're talking about the IT the cavs have experienced thus far, and in what little he has played he's been terrible.
