Allen Iverson was named to 11 All-Star games and won an MVP award in his highlight-reel career, but his infamous 2002 rant about practice may live on longer than any stat or accomplishment — and Iverson hates it.
“I wish I could take it back. My kids tease me about it,” Iverson said after being selected for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (via CSN Philly). “It makes me so mad. I’m a Hall of Famer and I can go outside today and go to a restaurant or wherever and somebody will come up to me and say, ‘PRACTICE? We talkin’ bout practice?!’ Man, I am a Hall of Famer and that’s all you can think about?”
