Better off the bench

Don't get me wrong, Allen Iverson is one of the best NBA players of all time, quite possibly.  The guy is MAYBE 6' tall, and is able to score at will, slipping through the 7-foot monsters with relative ease. 

When the Detroit Pistons traded for him, I thought it was a huge mistake.  Incumbent PG Rodney Stuckey really isn't a pure PG, and of course neither is Iverson.  Rip Hamilton, the starting SG, is able to play some SF, but really is too undersized to keep up with the current lot of SFs in the NBA these days.

I heard the Pistons will relegate Iverson to the bench when he returns from his brief injury-related hiatus.  Good move, in my opinion.  He's going to provide the Pistons with instant offense and can fill in at either guard spot.  Or, alternatively, the Pistons could roll with a 3-guard offense, depending on the opposing defense.

With many of the teams in the East hurting (Kevin Garnett, Jameer Nelson, etc.), the Pistons are probably set up to sneak into the playoffs and will be a force to be reckoned with, mainly due to their playoff experience.  They play fantastic team defense, and now with Iverson coming off the bench, will be a solid offensive team.

maybe he can start producing in the starting role if he just works harder during practice. http://www.lunch.com/data/Allen_Iverson_Practice_Interview-1010066....
