Although Allen Iverson had a lot of accomplishments on the court, one of the most infamous moments during his career came when he ranted about “practice” during a press conference.
Back in 2002, following the Philadelphia 76ers’ elimination from in the first round of the Playoffs that year, A.I. spewed out the word “practice” over 20 times when asked about… well, practice.
14 years later, Iverson was asked about his feelings toward practice again, during a Reebok press conference… and gave another legendary response.
“Obviously you didn’t get it. Obviously you didn’t get it when I explained it, man. I didn’t think I’d ever get that question again,” he said. “See, you might have not seen the documentary—so I’ll give you that. I’m just gonna hope you didn’t see it. You just heard me say I was the MVP. That’s the best player in the whole world. You think I can be the MVP without practicing? That’d be a bad motherf*cker.”
Watch it below, followed by the original rant from 2002.
