Allen Iverson will be out for the rest of the season. Conveniently, the team is citing Iverson's sore back as the reason he will be out.
The trade of Iverson for Chauncey Billups was a salary cap move, but clearly the Nuggets came out the victors in that deal. Billups has done wonders in Denver, leading them to the second best record in the Western Conference. Meanwhile Iverson has done nothing but cause trouble in Detroit, as is his usual act, and will now ride the pine as the Pistons try to stay in the playoff hunt.
