A matchup between the 76ers and the Lakers on a Friday night in mid December sounds like a total snooze fest these days. Fortunately for us, the 76ers planned Allen Iverson Hall of Fame Night for this must miss game.
During a press conference before tipoff, Iverson mentioned that he never lifted weights while playing in the NBA because, “that shit was too heavy.” Classic Iverson. Moments like this prove that he truly is, The Answer. One of the most cutthroat, tenacious, cold blooded assassins to ever play the game. Iverson is, and always will be, the realest.
Lifting weights? Practice? Allen Iverson had NO time for either.
