Allen Iverson Deal Receives Luke Warm Reactions in Detroit

Allen Iverson Deal Receives Luke Warm Reactions in Detroit

Reactions across the Internet have been mixed regarding Allen Iverson becoming a Detroit Piston. Heck, the kids at Detroit Bad Boys aren't even sure about giving the Answer his number.

What number does Iverson wear? Rodney Stuckey is the future, asking him
to give up No. 3 for what could be a one-year rental doesn’t sit well
with me (nor, I’m guessing, with all the fans who already bought his
jersey).

Tom Ziller of FanHouse writes:

This deal isn't about tomorrow or April, though: it's about July. Iverson is a pending free agent, while Billups and Antonio McDyess will take up $19 million of cap space next season. If Dumars lets A.I. flee and fails to re-sign aging forward Rasheed Wallace,
the Pistons will be looking at upwards of $20 million in cap space in
the summer of 2009. The free agent crop is solid -- not replete with
superstars, but solid. Lamar Odom, Shawn Marion, Hedo Turkoglu, Carlos
Boozer, Mehmet Okur, Ben Gordon ... there's a chance Dumars could pick
up two of those guys with all his space.

Wow. From the NBA elite to a guy dealt more because of his cap
relief in a year than his actual on-the-court value. A lot can happen
in a short period of time.

Brooks' 4 TDs leads Penn by Lehigh 65-47 in 60th meeting

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.

Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.

Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.

Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.

Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
