Is the CBA the ANSWER? - Jun 2, 2012


POSTED BY:

Alex's Articles

One of the NBA's most gifted players ever, has now been out of the league since 2010. A sure fire HOF candidate when eligible, former #1 overall draft pick Allen Iverson has been searching for the answer to his question for the past 2.5 years, why won't an NBA team give me a chance, bench player or not. Even though that answer remains elusive, AI has been busy, he played in a number of exhibition games in China this past month, and played as if he was trying to get the attention of one of the top (at least money wise) leagues in the world, the CBA.

Iverson still and always will have the skill, no one can take that away from him, but at the age of 36 ( turning 37 in early June), father time has caught up with him, no longer as quick, no longer as crafty, he now must rely on his intelligence as a player, and ability rather then his trademark speed, and relentless pursuit to the basket. The question, is will a CBA team look at this as Marbury 2.0, or just another publicity stunt to pad AI's wallet, for his well documented financial issues.

Only a handful of teams can afford what Iverson likely will command in terms of pay, as well as off court stuff. Beijing and Shanghai, the 2 most desirable cities to live in for foreign players, won't be available as Marbury has all but cemented his legacy in China, and Shanghai traditionally is a no risk team. That leaves the rest of the league. Xinjiang the powerhouse team, that has recently tilted the financial boundaries in the CBA, likely wont make the same mistake twice, as they did last year signing a NBA veteran, Shanxi, the 1st team to lure a proven NBA All Star, in Marbury, won't have interest, as standing now trumps showing. So who will take the Answer, that leaves a lot of questions from now till the star of the 2012-13 CBA season
