Everyone knows about Allen Iverson's "practice" rant, but former Creighton star Kyle Korver recalled another tangent the NBA Hall of Fame guard went on.
Korver was drafted by the 76ers and played alongside Iverson, who was benched at one point during that tenure for not attending a post-All Star break practice.
In the following practice, Iverson was asked about being benched. Korver knew the interview was going to be good, so he kept close to the former MVP.
During a recent episode of the Road Trippin’ Podcast, Korver recalled what Iverson told the reporter — using his best AI impersonation.
"He’s like, ‘I don’t know no former eight-time scoring champ that come off the bench,'" Korver recalled. "'I don’t know no former 10-time All-Star that come off the bench. I don’t know no former MVP that come off the bench. I don’t know no former Olympian that come off the bench.’
“And this dude read off his whole resume right off. ‘Why is it always Allen Iverson’s fault?’ I was like, ‘This is amazing!’ And it got no love."
You can check out the full podcast below, along with the original interview with Iverson, below. The Iverson story starts around the 26-minute mark.
