Allen Iverson signs with Memphis

Roughly 9 weeks ago, the 2009 NBA free agency began. Allen Iverson, who was once a star in the league, has still been without a team since then.

Finally, that all changed today. According to Iverson's Twitter, he will be joining the Memphis Grizzlies next season. He reportedly signed a 1 year deal for $3.5M, much less than the $21M he made last year in Denver and Detroit.

In his prime, Iverson was one of the best in the league. At this point in his career, his dominance has taken a dramatic drop. His numbers have fallen, and he's turned into a "chucker" on the court. The Iverson experiment in Motown didn't work at all, and I think it's one of Joe Dumars' biggest mistakes.

Who knows how his next experiment will work. The Grizzlies are a team FULL of chuckers...OJ Mayo, Mike Conley, Zach Randolph, Rudy Gay, and AI need to realize there is going to be 1 ball on the court.

And rumor has it Iverson may come off the bench. How's that going to work? Will he be happy with taking a reserve roll?

Many questions are still surrounding this signing...but hey, at least the guy signed with a team.
