Video: Iverson, practice, and MJ

In 1996, the Philadelphia 76ers used the 1st pick of the NBA draft to select a 6-0′ skinny guard out of Georgetown.  Allen “the Answer” Iverson helped finally bring the Sixers back to respectability.  Known for his tattoos, outspoken behavior, and post-game feedback, the Sixers have quickly fallen apart without his presence.  In 14 NBA seasons, Iverson averaged 26.7 points and an often overlooked 6.2 assists per game.  The 2000-2001 MVP also owns four individual scoring titles and an NBA Finals appearance.  In honor of his 2010 retirement, and viscous reports regarding his lack of self-control and responsibility off the court I have posted two of my favorite Iverson videos. The infamous Iverson crossover of Michael Jordan (which should have been called as carrying), and the famous press conference referring to his love of practice.
