Allen Iverson officially retired from the NBA on Wednesday. So in response the basketball world is taking time to remember what Iverson did both on the court and off the court.
On the court, Iverson ushered in the era we see today of smaller guards no longer being asked to run a team, but also being looked upon to score. But off the court, he’ll forever be remembered for his legendary “Practice?” rant while as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers.
The story behind Iverson’s rant hadn’t been told. But thanks to Gary Payton, that story has now come to light. And yes, alcohol was involved.
