Although the Grizzlies' interest in Iverson began with Heisley's strong insistence, Heisley contends he never would have sealed the deal without consent from general manager Chris Wallace and head coach Lionel Hollins.

If he kinda has the mentality that he still should be a 35, 40-minute player, I don’t think that will be successful. I don’t think coach Hollins will be able to figure that out; I think if AI realizes that he’s a 20 to 25-minute player, and on some good nights a little bit more, I think he can still have a major impact on a basketball team."

George Karl, who coached Allen Iverson for parts of 3 seasons in Denver, is skeptical about Iverson's ability to be a difference-maker in Memphis.

We made a 20-something year commitment and so on...That's a huge length of time to make a commitment, okay? I would say, it's more likely they're going to tear this place down in 20-25 years than it is that we're going to leave… Let's put it this way, I'm 72, I'll probably be gone before the Grizzlies are gone.

Jeff Adrien said he is "still playing the waiting game’’ after suiting up for Memphis in the Las Vegas Summer League...teams are realizing he could be a force off the bench as a rebounder and overachieving scorer near the basket. In Las Vegas, Adrien had 35 points and 26 rebounds in 78 minutes of playing time in four games, shooting 11 for 23 from the field and 13 for 20 from the foul line, as the Grizzlies went 5-0.

In the Memphis Grizzlies' War on Fans, tonight was not a deciding victory for the boys in blue, but they've definitely flanked their opponent and are headed for engagement.
