A common joke during Iverson’s playing days was that he weighed 160 pounds soaking wet.
Yet, despite such size and weight disadvantage, he averaged 26.6 points per game for his career, which is good for sixth all time to go along with four scoring titles. Unfortunately, Iverson’s legacy will be his infamous ‘talkin’ about practice’ rant, where he implored the reporters in attendance that it made no sense for anyone to have an issue with him missing practice.
Throughout the entire press conference, Iverson was himself - unabashed and up front. Iverson had no filter and he didn’t care what you thought about him. Allen Iverson’s don’t grow on trees, and that’s the real shame. I’d give anything to watch "The Answer" just one more time.
