Gary Payton Inspired Allen Iverson Practice Rant
I left of the, “we talkin’ ’bout practice man. I’m a franchise player and we talkin’ about practice!” rant out of yesterday’s Allen Iverson retirement post. But this is too good.
Gary Payton and Allen Iverson are out drinking during the off-season, and Gary Payton tells AI that George Karl doesn’t let him practice. Payton then recounts an conversation with Sixers coach Larry Brown after the ‘Practice Press Conference’. It’s a good thing that Gary Payton played in Seattle and not in a city where sports writers feel more comfortable calling out team stars, I can see him having a similar style media meltdown.
