O.J. Mayo: Hopefully We Can get Allen Iverson

Friday, July 31st, 2009

O.J. Mayo: so young, so young.  Mayo claims that if Allen Iverson were to become a member of the Memphis Grizzlies, that AI would help him a lot in practice.  Ha.  'Practice?  You talking about practice?' That's not Iverson's thing, O.J.  Either way, for a man people ridiculed as being ...

There's plenty of sub-plots, high stakes for the team following a disappointing year in 2008 and plenty of strong personalities (i.e. Clinton Portis, Chris Cooley) to keep an eye on.
