Allen Iverson jokes he couldn't coach because his team wouldn't practice

Thursday November 6th, 2014


Allen Iverson had a great NBA career. He led the league in scoring four times and was an All-Star in 11 consecutive seasons. But more than anything else, he'll be remembered for his infamous "Practice?!" rant, which is famous enough to be sampled on an Action Bronson track

A.I. seems cool with that, though. Speaking with the media recently while making a charity appearance in the Philippines, Iverson was asked if he had any interest in coaching. "I would never want to coach," he said, shaking his head. Why? "Because we would never practice."

The Answer is just a guy who knows his place in history.
