During Kyle Korver’s first few years in the NBA, the Philadelphia 76ers held a few of their training camps at Duke University.
Former Blue Devil JJ Redick remembers when the Sixers came to Durham, recently telling Korver a funny story about watching Allen Iverson practice in socks.
(Via The Old Man and The Three with JJ Redick and Tommy Alter):
“I just remember going to a practice and AI walked in a tad tardy. He played for the first 15 minutes, live basketball by the way, in socks. I was like, ‘What is happening here?’ Then I would hear these stories about him like they would do a mile run and he would win the mile running the last lap backwards. He was just a freak of nature.”
