To win a championship, Harden probably has to sacrifice a bit—and there’s considerable skepticism around the league that he’s willing. “I don’t think he is,” says a veteran executive with an Eastern Conference team. “James is like Allen Iverson: He wants to win his way and put up historical numbers while he’s winning. I would never question their desire to win, but they all want to win on their terms.”
Storyline: James Harden Trade?
Von Buchwaldt: He made Marbury look silly at times. And you’re like, that’s a guy you know is going to go in the NBA in the lottery. He was a freshman but Steve had his way with him. Winn: At that time (Allen Iverson) was the No. 1 point guard. This is a guy that when you watch what he does, can dribble, go to the hoop, dunk it, you’re like, Steve is in that class? Fizdale: He was a badass.
Mr. Smallwood grew up in Odenton, where he played high school soccer and baseball, and he was a 1987 graduate of the University of Maryland. He came to the Daily News in 1994 from the Rochester (N.Y.) Democrat and Chronicle, after having also worked at the Roanoke (Va.) Times. At the Daily News and then at the Inquirer after the staffs merged, he often wrote about college and NBA basketball, particularly during the Sixers’ Allen Iverson era. “Anytime he was interviewing you and asking questions, it was like a friend asking you,” former Sixers general manager Billy King said. “If you tried to B.S. him, he would give you that ‘Oh, come on, Billy, you know that’s not true.’ You couldn’t lie to him, because he had that look. He critiqued you with compassion.”
Thompson, who died at 78, wore a white towel over his right shoulder as he led Georgetown to great heights throughout his coaching career, which included the 1984 national title and five Big East championships. He coached basketball icons, such as Patrick Ewing and Allen Iverson. The idea, per sources, was discussed during offseason meetings that included “a large group of Black head coaches” in college basketball. Those on the calls wanted to find a way to acknowledge Thompson’s life in the first season since his death.
Q: What was it like playing against Allen Iverson? Steve Nash: It was awesome playing against Allen, great competitor, played our whole careers against each other. Such a dynamic ballhandler, penetrator, shotmaker. The toughest thing about Allen was he gets to the foul line. You could live with some of the shooting, you could live with some of the playmaking, but he got to the line and that broke your back so many times.
