Nike Vetos Tribute Sneaker After Iverson Objects

Nike Zoom Flight 96 Allen Iverson Tribute

For his entire career, Allen Iverson has been sponsored by Reebok. The iconic Question and Answer lines owed most of their popularity to AI’s ability to equate his on-court brilliance with off-court popularity. Nike was going to release the Nike Zoom Flight iteration commemorating the 1996 Draft class, and Iverson got his own tongue-in-cheek commemorative shoe. Well, AI didn’t take kindly to his likeness being used by a competitor and so Nike will not offer the Nike Zoom Flight 96 to the public. Read More »

Video: Adorable Little Girl Recites Allen Iverson’s Infamous “Practice” Rant

Maggie, Allen Iverson

It was over 12 years ago that the Philadelphia 76ers’ Allen Iverson – who Kevin Durant recently dubbed “pound-for-pound the best” – ended his season in ridiculously quotable fashion by going on, and on, and on about practice. The original video is awesome, and certainly worthy of your time. Far more entertaining, though, is this adorable little girl’s take on The Answer’s rant. Read More »

Durant Says Allen Iverson Is “Pound For Pound The Best” In Instagram Post

Kevin Durant, Allen Iverson

It’s only natural that today’s NBA generation would idolize 2001 NBA MVP Allen Iverson. The twentysomething superstars of 2014 were still in their formative basketball years as The Answer rose to such rare heights in the late 1990s and early 2000s, surely influenced by Iverson’s flair, attitude, and, most importantly, success. Kevin Durant counts himself among that group, as the reigning MVP confirmed on Instagram yesterday by calling Iverson “pound for pound the best.” Read More »

Woman Takes Selfie With Allen Iverson, But Admits She Doesn’t Know Him

Allen Iverson, Clueless Girl

We’re not a big fan of the selfie phenomenon, but we’re probably just old fashioned. If we saw Allen Iverson in the club, we’d probably just note we’re at a great club. We already got a chance to pick his brain, but others aren’t so lucky. That being said, if you snap a pic with The Answer, you better know the answer if someone asks who is in the pic of you on Instagram. Read More »

LeBron Channels Iverson With Smiling “Practice” Rant

LeBron James

After LeBron James cramped up in Game 1, forcing his early departure and an ensuing Spurs run, his health — and heart, unfortunately — has been speculated upon during the extra day off before tomorrow night’s Game 2. James was the last player to leave the podium before today’s practice, and it was apparent he was back to his old self when Dwyane Wade set him up for a fun Allen Iverson impression. Read More »
