    That George Karl article about Iverson was taken out of context. They have a whole article about how it was taken out of context over at Hoopsworld. Karl was basically saying how frustrating it was for him not to have a PG on that team. Iverson didnt play the PG for the majority of the time he played SG. He said when you dont have a PG that usually turns into a lot of throw away plays. He did say that he felt Iverson had a problem trusting his younger teammates at times when it came to passing the ball..He also went onto say that he beleives Iverson will strive in Detroit because of not only their system, but the veterens that are surrounding AI. Karl has said that he has nothing but respect for AI and enjoyed Coaching him, he was trying to give Billups praise for what he has brought to the team and also trying to give Iverson praise for what he can bring to Detroit but it got taken out of context.
