During his appearance on the All The Smoke podcast with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, Allen Iverson opened up about the infamous Sixers practice rant back in 2002.

Iverson, one of the best players in NBA history, explained the reasons that led to that infamous rant.

Iverson said he was dealing with the passing of his friend and trade rumors, while he was upset that Philadelphia lost in the first round of the 2002 playoffs after making the NBA Finals in 2001.

Iverson is one of the Philadelphia 76ers legends and finished his NBA career with averages of 26.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 6.2 assists.
