Gilbert Central, Item No. 2: Gil as GM
After the win over Denver last week, the Wizards discussed Allen Iverson in their dressing room. Antonio Daniels suggested Golden State would send Baron Davis and Troy Murphy to Philly for Iverson. Cal Booth had many detailed thoughts, which I couldn't write down fast enough. Gil came out of the shower and joined the conversation.
"He's playing virtual GM over here," Brendan Haywood said of Booth. "I need cap space. If I'm Philly, I need cap space."
"Cleveland will do it: Larry and Ilgauskas," Gil suggested. "I don't know [about] Golden State."
(Gil later posted his thoughts about Iverson on his blog:
I do want to clear up something because me and my teammates have been having an argument for the last couple days. I said, "Name the top three players in the game." Name them. I always say, "How does everyone overlook A.I.?" How do you look over somebody who for the last nine years has been in the top three in scoring each year? I'm just saying, it's dominant. He dominates the game of basketball. He is one of the most feared players. I take Kobe, then him and then after that you can throw anybody you want under there. So the second best player in this league, he can go anywhere he pleases.)
Anyhow, the conversation turned to Iverson's plight.
"That's the messed up part; they're not going to trade him and now they're not going to play him?" Gil said.
"He's suspended, what's the hurry?" A.D. said. "He's not playing and he's getting paid."
"Now they ain't gonna get what they deserve for him," someone said.
"They're making it so they'll get back trash for him," Gil agreed. "Yeah, we'll give you Jonathan Bender and two bags of peanuts...."
