      I won't say much yet on this, but I do want to introduce one aspect
      with regard to

      One of the things I remember hearing about Dominique Wilkins and have
      heard about Allen Iverson is that their shots are more often
      rebounded by their own team because their teammates know that they
      are going to shoot the ball. We already have put forth evidence (I
      think, I know I did the work) showing that Iverson's presence does
      help the Philly offense even though the boy sometimes can't hit the
      side of a barn with his shot.

      Just something to consider.
