Iverson Misses Practice - Gets Fined by Team

Via TSN

Quote:
DETROIT - Allen Iverson apparently chose family and food over practice - and he'll be fined for it.

Iverson was the only player who didn't show up when the Detroit Pistons worked out on Thanksgiving.

Coach Michael Curry confirmed Iverson will be fined, will not start Friday night against the Milwaukee Bucks and might not play in the game for missing the practice.

After Detroit traded for the superstar, Iverson insisted he would do whatever Curry wanted him to and even mocked his famous rant about practice while playing for the Philadelphia 76ers.
LOL! One quote had him saying

"ITS ONLY A PRACTICE? PRACTICE, I DIDNT MISS A GAME!"

and here we go...

Typical Iverson.

It's not even practice that matters; it's the fact that he doesn't really seem to care about being with his teammates.

Maybe INSIDER, was right.

the guy is a veteran,,, he's what the young guys will look up to.
he doesnt give a shit about his teamates, or chemistry, or camaraderie.
he's a lost cause.

I understand it's thanksgiving, but this is your job. I'm sure the Pistons realized what day it was and probably didn't schedule a long practice. Good on the team though for fining those who show up late and threatening not to play Iverson. One person isn't bigger than the team.

So do NBA players who practice and/or play on Thanksgiving get paid 2X like the rest of us working on a stat holiday? lol

I think the fact that they earn millions of dollars exempts them from that...lol..

Joe Dumars and Michael Curry can't say they are shocked by this can they? I mean check the video about. Thanks for posting that I love that Iverson Rant a true classic for all time.

As Iverson said "We takin' about practice man, we talkin about practice, not the game, but practice"

How is supposed to make the players on the team better in practice

These are all AI's words. But he does play the game and always hustles, you can't bash him for that.

Once again. "We takin' about practice man"
