Two decades ago, Allen Iverson unleashed his “practice” rant in front of the media. 

“We sitting in here – I’m supposed to be the franchise player, and we in here talking about practice. I mean, listen: We talking about practice. Not a game. Not a game. Not a game. We talking about practice,” Iverson said. “Not a game. Not the game that I go out there and die for and play every game like it’s my last. Not the game. We talking about practice, man.”
