What's the point of Walker in Philadelphia? There's no reason to put a shoot-first guy on a team that already has one, especially after seeing his disaster of a season with the Mavericks last year.

He's overpaid to boot. The only reason to get him would be to bite the bullet for a season and keep him and his problems, then with his contract expiring be in better position for free agency the next year.

But Allen Iverson isn't getting any younger...

I agree, they need a guy that can complement Allen's game, not conflict with it. They need a good point guard now they lost Eric Snow and a big body down low.
