Practice we talkin bout practice!!

Allen Iverson always showed toughness, heart and great scoring ability, but he did not always show up to practice. So on May 7, 2002 when he was asked about missing practice during a press conference, Iverson’s response was one for the ages!!!  He obviously was upset about the question, and his answer covered everything: his relationship with Former 76ers coach Larry Brown, the issue of Larry Brown announcing to everyone that Iverson missed practice, the rumor that he may be traded next year, why he missed practice, and delivered his very own question “How the hell can I make my teammates better by practicing?” The practice press conference is one of the most infamous press conferences of all time and tainted Allen Iverson’s image for the rest of his career.

In this post I could not beat the practice record I said practice seven times(including practicing) Iverson said it 24 ½ times (he also said the word game seven times).
