07:18 AM ET 08.23 | With Allen Iverson retiring, in addition to the many, many clips of on-court greatness worth reliving, few moments of his career are more indelible than a certain interview about practice. In honor of his departure, FOX Sports Live spent some time Wednesday night discussing the 11-time NBA All-Star. Gary Payton -- a legendary NBA point guard himself -- took center stage in the discussion. And he revealed quite the gem. Payton says he was essentially responsible for Allen Iverson's infamous "We talkin' about practice!" rant. ... The story goes that Payton and Iverson were hanging out one night and Iverson asked Payton how he keeps his body in such good shape. "My coach George Karl didn't let me practice," Payton replied. "So that was it. You have to stop practicing."

If AI has been out of the NBA for three years why did it take so long for him to 'retire'? Does his pension improve? If not I don't get it.

On a side note. This site may be FUBAR but some people are getting too worked up over this. Also why post if you can't see beyond page 1........

Too bad Glove didn't pass on financial advice to Allen. That would have been the right "answer" to more important questions.

Technicians at fannation must be congratulated for finally fixing a monumental "page scroll" issue which otherwise takes decades of sophisticated research and experimentation to figure out.

Great job indeed!!
