"I would lead by example," -Allen Iverson

After months of not knowing where Allen Iverson would be playing ball next season, it appears he's heading to the much rumored Memphis Grizzlies.

Full story here.

His reunion with Larry Brown in Charlotte will not come to fruition. Iverson tweeted, "God Chose Memphis as the place that I will continue my career."

Iverson goes from making $21 million last season with Denver and Detroit to a one-year contract worth $3.5 million with Memphis.

The Grizzlies now has plenty of offensive firepower with Iverson, Zach Randolph, O.J. Mayo, and Rudy Gay to go along with young point guard Mike Conley and young centers Marc Gasol (this site's favored center) and Hasheem Thabeet. I'm not sure how this experiment in Memphis is going to work out, but Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley is hoping the move will help the franchise sell tickets and perhaps be a bit more competitive on the floor.

I recall being very excited when Iverson was initially traded to Denver and even marveled at his play at times with the Nuggets. I hope the 34-year-old guard will change his game a bit and play into more of a team concept ... but you know what they say ... you can't teach an old dog new tricks.

Regardless ... things should be interesting in Memphis this season.
