Detroit Pistons Getting Inside 2009-10-30

Detroit Pistons Getting Inside 2009-10-30
Allen Iverson won't let it end. Iverson's disastrous tenure with the Pistons was the fault of former coach Michael Curry, said Iverson, who continues to blame Curry for the disaster that was last season.

"I was ecstatic about it (the trade) when I first heard about it, but it just didn't work out," said Iverson, now with the Memphis Grizzlies, before Wednesday's regular season opener. "I was put in a bad situation that I wasn't obviously ready for mentally. I was promised it would be another way, and it was totally different.

"Obviously it didn't work out because the head coach (Curry) even isn't there after one season."

Iverson didn't play Wednesday because of a hamstring injury.

Iverson said he had no problems with Joe Dumars, president of basketball operations.

"I don't have any problems with Joe," Iverson said. "My problem was being told it didn't turn out the way Michael Curry told me it was going to be."

Rip Hamilton agreed with Iverson that Curry handled the situation poorly.

"It could have worked out," Hamilton said. "I just thought the coach we had at the time couldn't put us in situations where we all could be at our best. When you don't have that, it makes it difficult. All the guys are trying to figure it out on the floor, on the fly, rather than putting us in situations that put us where we could be better."

PISTONS 96, GRIZZLIES 74: For a team that's supposed to struggle defensively this season, the Pistons held Memphis to 36.1 percent shooting (26-of-72) and pulled away for an easy victory. Hamilton scored 25 and Ben Gordon had 22 points in his Pistons debut. The Pistons shot 51.4 percent (37-of-72) themselves in an impressive performance at both ends of the floor. Marc Gasol had 21 points for Memphis.
