Lean Blog Audio — “Practice? We’re Talking About Practice?” Yes, Practicing Lean

Allen Iverson was a legendary NBA point guard and scorer who played from 1996 to 2011.In a 2002 news conference that still appears regularly on ESPN, Iverson responded to criticism that he missed practice (due to injury) and he somewhat indignantly asked (over and over) some variation of:

“We’re talking about practice?”

Iverson wasn’t complaining about having to practice, but more about the media’s insistence on asking questions about practice, which is a topic he apparently didn’t think was too interesting to talk about.

Practice is certainly important. Maybe not when you’re already as good as Iverson was.
