If you haven't heard, it looks like The Answer is coming back to the Eastern Conference. In a trade that has been agreed to in principle, the Nuggets will be sending Allen Iverson to Detroit for Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess and Cheikh Samb. I will get into trade analysis later, but what this means for the Raptors is that we have a decent shot at 4-0.
Once this deal gets approved, I doubt Iverson will make it to Detroit, or Toronto for that matter in time for our match up on Wednesday. Thereby leaving the Pistons without their starting point guard, big man off the bench or Iverson. Call it what you will, but that's what good teams do, find ways to win. So while I'm not trying to celebrate too early, as long as the Raptors do what they're supposed to. We can keep our undefeated record intact.
