I don't know if this is the best thing in the long-run, but in the short-term it will help. This is because the top scorer in the league is sitting for 15 games because the NBA doesn't want to punish the Knicks for starting the whole mess. See the Rocky Mountain News Story.
The big issue will be in when Carmelo Anthony comes back in mid-January and the two top scorers in the league are on the court at the same time.
Also how will AI and George Karl get along? Karl has done well and also struggled with high profile/troublesome players. Maybe he will call his friend Larry Brown and get some advice?
Also, how will AI fit into the Denver Community? The Nuggets are heavily involved in community fundraising and events. AI will need to participate and show compassion for the community and they will except him. Otherwise it will be tough for him to be accepted. All of the stars in Denver Sports history have done tremendous community work and he will too. But this is a tremendous step up for the Nuggets and makes them a legitimate contender for the title.
I think that this blogger has captured it pretty well, Iverson traded to the Nuggets. Go Nuggets!
