|BetCBSports.com POSTS ODDS ON: 'WHAT WILL BE THE ANSWER TO WHERE THE 'ANSWER' WILL BE NEXT YEAR? IF HE DOESN'T STAY IN PHILLY WHERE WILL HIS QUESTION BE ANSWERED?'|
(Zapote, Costa Rica, 29 March, 2004)-If you look up AI in the dictionary you will find that it is an acronym for Artificial Intelligence. What is a lesser known fact is that the second definition is also an acronym, an acronym for Artificial Iverson. The man, who once was referred to as the 'Answer,' has been leaving most of us with nothing but questions, especially his teammates and the 76'ers organization as a whole.
Iverson has been acting quite artificial lately. Whether skipping practice for the 50th time, or benching himself and refusing to play because interim coach Chris Ford was going to have him come off the bench. What must that madman Ford have been thinking? The fact is, at least he was thinking, compared to Iverson who isn't the sharpest pencil in the pocket protector.
What is sad is the fact that he still is one of the best players in the NBA, a league that continues to transform into a younger and younger version every passing year. It seems like an eternity since Allen Iverson was a young phenom coming out of Georgetown University. At age 22 he was considered very young to be a Lottery Pick and entering the NBA Draft after his sophomore season.
The rest, as they say, is history and A.I. has become one of the most dynamic and talented players in the NBA, but also one of its most controversial. This season has been a total disaster for Iverson. Not only have his senior citizen-like Sixers struggled mightily all year, but Iverson has single-handedly had one coach fired, in Randy Ayers, and is attempting to drive his current coach, Chris Ford, to jump off the Walt Whitman Bridge.
'A.I. is still one of the most dominant players in the NBA, but he is an eight-year veteran now and his temper tantrums are not helping his team's success at all,' said BetCBSports Senior Odds Maker, Dan 'The Man' Johnson. 'Obviously the rumors have been rampant about Iverson being traded away. Their performance at the end of this season while Iverson remains on the sidelines could determine his future in Philly.'

It got into the business in a very deliberate and independent way. Nine years ago, several staffers, now management of BetCBSports, got together to review the state of the online gambling industry. They quickly concluded that there was extraordinary potential for success, and they also realized there was a clear need for a professional, secure and service driven facility for the growing numbers of online players.
Characteristically, the BetCBSports planners got off to a quick start. BetCBSports created a modest internet business that appeared to meet the perceived need. During the intervening years since then, it has continually proved it has the right formula, because it has grown and improved every year. Today, it is part of an expanding affiliate network that includes over fifty sports book companies.
