Last night, in light of the news that Allen Iverson is set to announce his retirement, the Fox Sports 1 team of Charissa Thompson, Andy Roddick, Donovan McNabb, and Gary Payton, discussed Allen Iverson’s career. Of course, the topic of Iverson’s unforgettable “practice” press conference eventually became the focus. Thompson seized the moment and asked Payton to corroborate the rumor mill that suggested he was responsible for Iverson going off.
Here’s video of Payton’s response in which he breaks down the origin of that legendary rant.
LOL. Although Payton is probably mostly known for his “practice” advice, I’m sure this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as stories go. I know I’m not the only one who’d tune in to watch Payton talk about conversations he’s shared with athletes on vacation… while buzzed!
And because it never get old…
