Allen Iverson's "PRACTICE" rant was caused by Gary Payton

From an interview with Slamonline, Gary Payton explains his longevity:

SLAM: But how were you that durable? How is that possible?

GP: I was really smart. When I started playing, I was playing a lot of minutes—at one point, for like two or three years, I was averaging 46 minutes per game. So what I did was, I didn’t practice a lot. George Karl would tell me to go into the Jacuzzi, ice up, and come out only when we would have major things on the court. So I would practice for about an hour, and then George would pull me out. Then I would go back into the Jacuzzi and do the whole thing again. I kept my therapy and massages, so when I would play in the game I just left it all on the court for 46 minutes because I had the energy.
Yep, nothing to add here except that the NBA is the greatest, and so is Gary Payton.

"I was really smart ... So what I did was, I didn't practice a lot."

It probably didn't happen this way, but I imagine him holding court in the Sonics jacuzzi with women and champagne like a Biggie video brought to life, all while talking sh-t to Lil Penny on an impossibly large cell phone. Just another day at NBA practice in the 1990s.

Also, there's this:

I did that routine for a long period of time. And actually, it’s funny. I told Allen Iverson the routine and he went and tried to do the same thing, but he ended up doing it the wrong way.
... AND THAT'S WHERE KEEPING IT REAL WENT WRONG.

This has always gone on. Some players and coaches work it out, some dont. In Iverson's case it was mainly because of who he was and the way he went about things at that time that caused it to blow up to that magnitude.

which explains why he had to bandwagon for his ring.. Makes me wonder how good he could have been if he actually practiced more.

Payton is possibly a better talent than Kobe.

Only in his 6th year and he already carried the Sonics to the finals with an overeating fatass.

In the western conference that's even more stacked back then.
