Any excuse to talk about Allen Iverson, the one and only AI in my book, I will take. And if it's an opportunity to reference his famous "practice" rant, then even better.
SportsCenter informed its viewers this morning that today marks the anniversary of several notable events in the NBA. My favorite of these moments is featured below. If you can believe it, AI's infamous "practice" press conference took place 9 years ago today. How times flies. Oh how I miss you, Allen Iverson.
It was another rough Sunday for The Sports Muse. A few posts featuring updates from the past few days in the world of sports are due, but until then, reader Joe Camp shared a video so amazing I had to share it with you. It is a compilation of some of the best lines in sports history put to music. This video is heavy on the NFL side but includes the important presence of Allen Iverson's infamous "practice" sound bite. The video has been on the interwebs for over a year so you may have seen it before, but if so it's worth another look.
