“We’re talking about practice?” What pops in your head when you read this? Probably one of Allen Iverson’s most famous off-court sound bytes ever.
Reebok Classics brings us back to this memorable moment with the Reebok Classics Question Mid “Practice” sneaker.
This shoe will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Question’s silhouette. The colorway is red grey and black, which was inspired by the the Boston Red Sox baseball cap during his off-court rant in 2002.
The shoe has an all grey tumbled leather upper and black leather overlaying on the mudguard. There will be red stitching on the sides and red shoe laces. Also, complementing the shoe will be a baseball stitching on the side panel and a gum bottom to finish off the shoe.
The Reebok Classic Question Mid “Practice” will hit stores on May 13th and retail at $140.
Rumors always spread about Iverson being drunk at his infamous press conference, but that wasn’t the case. During a press conference in Philadelphia, he announced his retirement on October 30th, 2013 because he lost his desire to play. At the end of his unforgettable era, he was able to tell his side in front of everyone. The Hall of-Famer talked about the highs and lows of his career, but of course he couldn’t leave in peace without talking about his legendary “practice” speech.
He wasn’t mad or angry, but sad, due to the death of his best friend that had past that morning of the press conference. AI has been ridiculed for his aggressive and abrasive personality, but he simply was in mourning.
It was reported that A.I. said practice 22 times. Who would’ve known one word in a press conference would be one of the most unforgettable in NBA press history?
