Warriors become the New Jersey Nets?

If Iverson comes to town.

Okay hold on a minute, everyone loves to talk about New York, no matter how bad they are.

Iverson and Baron = Starbury and Francis?

Why don't we take a look at New Jersey for a minute, bear with me here.

-Vince Carter: Takes the most shots, on the fence whether he is a superstar, capable of 30 point games, continues to shoot even on bad nights, okay passer.

-Richard Jefferson: Viable 2nd scoring option, nice atheletic ability which makes him an above average rebounder for a guard/SF.

-Jason Kidd: One of the best distributors in the league if not arguably the best(besides that MVP Nash guy), and a nightly triple double threat.

-Nenad Kristic: A serviceable center, shoots a high percentage, rebounds above average, scores when the other 3 don't.

Doesn't that sound like:
-Allen Iverson
-Jason Richardson
-Baron Davis
-Andris Biedrins ?

Too much ego on one team you say? Not enough balls to go around you say?

The Lakers went to the NBA Finals with Payton, Shaq, Kobe, and Malone a few years back (along with some 0.4 sec. miracle shot by Fish).

The Miami Heat won the whole thing last year with Wade, Shaq, Walker, Payton.

And both of those teams were thought of in the preseason as teams who would not have enough shots to go around, or too many egos.

Nellie himself took Dallas well into the playoffs with Nash, Dirk, and Nick (didn't want to come to Golden State after his hot shooting in the playoffs with Dallas) Van Exel.

New Jersey plays in a weak conference, weak division, where winning half their games is enough to make the playoffs, yes, and haven't done much damage once there since the early 2000's Finals runs. We wouldn't have Shaq either, but we would have 3 viable scoring options at any one time.

If we manage to swindle a deal for Iverson, we can have a lineup how they have in New Jersey albeit a few inches shorter, but with minimal difference in talent and abilities. Then if a PF we have left steps up alongside Biedrins' continued growth, even better.

Don Nelson wouldn't be shy about sitting Iverson if he isn't shooting well. But if Iverson doesn't want to be here if he comes over in a proposed trade, we get the Nick Van Exel fiasco all over again.

But if he wants to win and believes this can work, he can play hard every night and know that having a big ego won't get you wins, won't win you a championship, and he'll only have soo many chances over the next few years to even get to try for one.

Thanks for reading, leave some thoughts on any of this; Why it can or cannot work!
