Allen Iverson: "Practice" Remix

On ESPN, Stephen A Smith is reporting that Allen Iverson is going to announce his retirement from the NBA, following his abrupt departure from the Memphis Grizzlies earlier this season after only three games. He was reportedly unhappy coming off the bench rather than starting.

In recognition of this day, embedded below is a 4 minute rap remix of an absolutely legendary press conference that Iverson once held when he played for the Phildalphia 76ers years ago, in which he held forth on his disdain for practice.
"We're sitting here, I'm supposed to be a franchise player, and we're in here talkin' about practice," he says dismissively. "How the hell can I make my teammates better by practice?"
(This clip also intersperses a few short segments from some other legendary sports press conferences, including a drunk, long retired Joe Namath hitting on the female sideline reporter who is trying to interview him live on Monday Night Football.)
