Why the Bobcats Should Sign Allen Iverson

1: he will score points
2: he will fill seats
3: we will not need to spend big money on raymond felton (that one kind of hurts to write)
4: Augustin will be the starter in 2010 anyways
5: he would not break the bank
6: people in charlotte might actually remember there is an NBA team in the city
7: the Bobcats do not have a volume shooter
8: i hear he throws a mean lob (which is the only way Tyson Chandler is capable of scoring)



these are not perfect reasons. probably not great reasons. but i think they are a better alternative than throwing too much money at an average league guard in Raymond Felton.  Iverson can keep the seat warm for Augustin for a year, then come off the bench in two years or retire.  i know he's not the same player he was 5 years ago, or even 3 years ago, but he's a warrior. the cats are young any more, but augustin is one who could learn from AI.  An offseason that adds a legitimate center (Tyson Chandler), a young 2 guard (Henderson) and a veteran PG (Iverson) could push the cats into a 7 or 8 seed without breaking the bank for years to come.
