Allen Iverson spoofs ‘practice’ rant in new commercial (video)

“We’re not talking about the game. We’re talking about practice.”

Despite all of Allen Iverson’s NBA awards and accolades, those words from his infamous “practice” rant may be Iverson’s greatest contribution to popular culture.  (Can you imagine if that had happened during the Twitter era?)

Fortunately, Iverson has a good sense a humor about the whole thing and has even made reference to it in his retirement speech in October.

In a new Reebok commercial, Iverson further spoofs his rant while starring alongside Shaq and Shawn Kemp.

It’s a nostalgic trip down memory lane for NBA fans.
