Brent Barry lip-synced Allen Iverson's 'Practice' rant

Thursday May 7th, 2015

Thursday marks the 13th anniversary of Allen Iverson's infamous "Practice" rant, so former NBA player Brent Barry marked the occasion by lip-syncing a portion of Iverson's meltdown. 

As great a player as Iverson was, the rant is his lasting impact on the game and he embraces it. Speaking with the media this fall 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."

So on the 13th anniversary of the NBA's most entertaining press conference, plenty of people paid homage to Iverson

Basketball writer Steve McPherson posted an adorable video of his young daughter mimicking A.I. and Barry responded with a tribute of his own.
