08:08 AM ET 01.01 | This edition of "A.I." in Denver -- Andre Iguodala -- is very different from the Allen Iverson years. [Said George Karl:] "Andre is a good, solid basketball player. He doesn't have a flamboyant part to his body of work." ... [Iguodala's] veteran leadership is expected to pay huge dividends down the road. George Karl isn't pushing that, understanding that it takes time for a team to accept a new leader. "I think he's taken small steps, but to become a leader on this team is probably a whole year process," says Karl. "I think Andre Miller is still our leader, but Ty [Lawson], Gallo [Danilo Gallinari], Kenneth [Faried], the window for leadership is wide open for anybody who wants to take responsibility and demand respect."

I don't know about this leadership identity crisis... I'm here to help Denver. Take my picture and blow it up in your arena, locker room, team bus and all your merchandise... This will make me your leader and solve the problem...

Denver had the veteran presence a few years ago when the had Billups and they chose to include him in the trade with the Knicks. I know they wish they had him back. I understand that it was just business but for Denver's point it was bad business because Billups actually wanted to be there.
