In the pantheon of famous Sports' speeches, the Allen Iverson "Practice?" one ranks up near the top for me. I'd include it on a short list with Jimmy V's at the ESPYs, Lou Gehrig's "Luckiest Man", Jack Buck's Poem after 9/11 and Jim Mora's "Playoffs?" rant (sarcasm people). I don't know why but every time I hear the clip, I just start cracking up.
Well fast forward to AI's press conference today announcing him as the newest addition to the Pistons. Iverson was sitting with Joe Dumars, and discussing how much he's willing to sacrifice for a Championship, when he walked right into it....
Hilarious! I can't stand how good the East is now. Not that the Pistons weren't good with Billups, but every single team got better except the one I root for. Good times in Detroit, but I still don't entirely understand the trade.
