Allen Iverson Hates Practice: 17-Year Anniversary | BONUS Clip | DESUS & MERO

Yo, this week marked the
anniversary of the greatest press conference of all time. Yes. 17 years ago this past
Tuesday, Allen Iverson set the media straight. After someone asked him
why he missed a practice. Practice. Not a game. Not a, not– not the game that
I go out there and die for. Mm-hmm. And play every game
like it’s my last. Not the game. We’re talking about
practice, man. Practice. I mean, how silly is that? And we’re talking
about practice. I’m not shoving it
aside, you know, like it don’t mean anything.
I– This is when your girl catches
you when you in the wrong. And you’re like, fuck cares.
– I don’t care. Let me just keep
talking until it stop. Yo, listen.
Yo, listen. The gaslight is on. Is that, like,
your new catchphrase? (LAUGHING) I’m
putting T-shirts available next Tuesday. We’re talking
about practice, man. We’re talk– we’re
talking about practice. We’re talking about practice. We ain’t talking about the game. We’re talking about
practice, man. – Mm.
– [INAUDIBLE] AI. Doesn’t he have, like, a
trust fund with, like, 70– Oh, yeah.
He got it. He got– –have money that’s waiting
for him when he gets older? Yeah, he got money on deck.
CREW: He has what? A trust fund? Yeah, cause they
say he went broke. But he has, like, all this money
his friend put away for him when he reaches a certain age. When he turns 50, right? Yeah– You know how wild you
have to be for your friend to put money away. It’d be like, “Yo, nigger, you
get this shit when you are 50.” Yo, you wildin. You wildin. And you– you going hard. I’m to 38. I’m like, can I get it now? Ha, ha. Ha, ha, ha. Ha, ha, ha, ha. A very reputable source. Oh, wow! Ha, ha, ha, ha. See, you joke about things. But, yo, that’s why you
gotta call JG Wentworth. Yeah. You know what I’m saying? Y’all– y’all know the number. You know what I’m
saying, 877-Cash Now. I have no idea what
they do but I know as soon as I get some
money, I’m calling them, like, “Yo, nigger.”
– Yo, I’m saying. “I have a
structured settlement and I need cash now.” “And I need cash now.” Ha, ha, ha, ha. “By the way, what’s a
structured settlement?” “Yeah, we [INAUDIBLE].”

  1. why you guys gotta sell out you were cool on viceland now its just sad interviewing industry plants and reporting garbage now

  2. "Yo , The gas light is on"!!!๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ’ฏ can't wait for the shirt.๐Ÿ’–

  3. the show is essentially the same as the vice show except they dont comment on up to date of funny shit like the gas station woman or the im not a fucking baby dude the show lost its edge i hope next season they fix it and do the old shit on a bigger budget

  4. What people forget is Allen lost a close friend recently and attended funeral a day or two before this.

  5. His friend died. So, nobody remembers that he was grieving? Then his statement makes perfect sense.

  6. If you listen without watching it sounds like Charlie Murphy ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ


    Bitch, you weariing a Viking suit on a subway.

  8. Those commercials for J.G. Wentworth are about some pretty evil shit. They give you 30 grand and your monthly settlement payments for the lead poisoning you got as a child that are worth hundreds of thousands go to the company. It happened to Freddie Gray.

  9. That dude in the audience was wrong, the title of that kicksonfire site was just clickbait, the reebok trust fund is still in effect

  10. I fucking hate this clip. this is white nba trying to make thug out of him. Don't even like to joke about this shit.


  12. read this . .. "The other part few remember from the practice rant is the raw and lingering wound Iverson still suffered from the death of his best friend. Rahsaan Langeford was shot and killed seven months earlier, an event with which Iverson struggled to cope. All throughout the '01-'02 season, Langeford's death hung over Iverson, and just days before his interview, the murder trial for the man accused of killing Langeford began.ย The 2014 documentary "Iverson" explores this dimension.

    "Nobody looks at the whole comment Allen made," Scoop Jackson says in the film. "He was talking about his boy dying … [The media] would not play that full track."

    In truth, minutes after he jokes about practice, Iverson becomes more serious and vulnerable.

    "I'm upset for one reason: 'Cause I'm in here. I lost. I lost my best friend. I lost him, and I lost this year. Everything is just going downhill for me, as far as just that. You know, as far as my life. And then I'm dealing with this. … My best friend is dead. Dead. And we lost. And this is what I have to go through for the rest of the summer until the season is all over again."
