After the 2002 NBA season, the 76ers failed to reach the Finals again, and coach Brown bluntly said that Iverson did not train! For a time, Iverson became the target of public criticism.
In the 2001 NBA Finals, Iverson single-handedly defeated the Lakers who won all the playoffs, although in the end they lost to the "OK" combination 1:4, but Iverson always gave people a feeling of a lone hero! However, on May 8, 2002, head coach Brown publicly declared to the media: Iverson does not train! For a time, Iverson became a hot topic of discussion among fans! At the press conference, a reporter asked Iverson: Are you not training?
Iverson laughed widely and said, "Can a player get an MVP without training?"
Subsequently, Iverson was not spared, he used 22 "training" to ask the reporter, and for a time the scene became Iverson's personal talk show, and the reporter was also dumbfounded.
In 2016, Iverson was asked in an interview whether he often missed training that year, and Iverson recalled: In fact, at that time, I was just reluctant to undergo strength training, I was more willing to undergo physical therapy, so that I could recover my strength as soon as possible after the game!
In fact, when Iverson played in the 76ers, his bench press strength was as high as 130 kilograms, and he was only 183 centimeters tall, and he was already good in terms of strength, you know that Maddy was only 120 kilograms in the bench press!
In April 2016, Iverson and Yao Ming entered the Hall of Fame together. When Yao Ming was the first to take the stage, he said to Iverson: I am the first to go on stage, don't laugh, I think this position should belong to Iverson, because I need more training than him!
As soon as he said this, Iverson laughed a lot! The "training gate" that has been 14 years has been revived by Yao Ming, and the audience can't help but laugh!
Indeed, Iverson has entered the Hall of Fame, why is Yao Ming still mentioning "training"? #打卡挑战局 #
