Brown tired of Iverson?: Is this for real? I thought that the Sixers were just a second scorer away from getting a higher seed. Are Iverson's missed practices hurting the team or Brown's feelings?

Considering that they just got elimated from the playoffs, I don't know if I'd put much stock in this. It could just be something Brown said out of frustration. The article's examples of Iverson's not going to practice are pretty sketchy, but it does seem like most championship teams have strong leaders on and off the court, and Iverson's not filling that role. He's very talented and a fierce competitor, but maybe he's not much of a leader or team player.

Feh...Iverson's too valuable to be traded, so I'd bet on Brown quitting after next year. Although I would love to see a Vince Carter/AI deal. Hey, it worked for New Jersey...
