3. If the Sixers' ultimate goal was to swap Iverson for young
players, draft picks and cap space, why not deal with Boston then?
Considering how badly Boston wanted Iverson, they would have agreed to
any trade not involving Pierce or Jefferson (even a trade with multiple
first rounders) ... but we'll never know because Philly didn't want to
trade with someone in their own division. Which sounds good on paper,
until you remember that Philly will be rebuilding for the next 3-4
years. Who the hell cares who's in their division then? Ludicrous.
My thoughts exactly. Simmons just made me depressed. I think I might have to go watch Rocky.
