Allen Iverson trade is a strategic one for Piston’s General Manager Job Dumars, who knows a little bit about winning. Dumar s brought in Iverson and combined him with Rip Hamilton, which gives them a potent two guard set with Iverson being a great duo purpose guard who is at home playing the point and scoring as well. It gives the Piston another option in the backcourt and increases the overall scoring capabilities.
Chauncey Billups handled the point effectively, however the Piston’s offense was slow and methodical, which nullified any backcourt threat that the Piston may have had. With Billups at the point the Pistons had a slow methodical offense that did not suit the talent that the Pistons brought to the table. Iverson increases the tempo and the flow, freeing up scorers like Rasheed Wallace ,Tayshaun Prince, and Rip Hamilton, all three thrive in an up tempo offense.
