A federal judge announced his decision to uphold the cancellation of the Washington Redskins trademark on Wednesday, and in his decision he quoted a great legal mind of the 21st century, Allen Iverson.

Judge Gerald Bruce Lee cited the landmark case of Iverson v. Practice in quoting the point guard's infamous rant, with the judge using it as a simile for how cancelling a trademark registration is not the same as ending a trademark.

“Just as Allen Iverson once reminded the media that they were wasting time at the end of the Philadelphia 76ers’ season ‘talking about practice’ and not an actual professional basketball game, the Court is similarly compelled to highlight what is at issue in this case —trademark registration, not the trademarks themselves.”
