The Atlanta Braves’ home opener at the brand-spankin’ new Sun Trust Ball Park isn’t scheduled for another 10 days, but the team decided to get out in front of it by inviting NBA Hall of Famer – and baseball enthusiast – Allen Iverson to give it a bump.
Unfortunately, like his now infamous press conference rant about practice, things went in a different direction when Iverson was asked about parking:

Parking? We’re talking about parking? At a state-of-the-art stadium? Yeah, I’d walk out after that set of questioning, too.
Surely, you all remember Iverson’s “We’re talking about practice!” press conference with the 76ers, back in the day, but there’s never a bad excuse to watch it once again:
Iverson mentions practice 20 times. Clearly, that’s not what he’s there to talk about. So combined with the Braves presser, we now all know never to bring up practice (or parking!) in front of Allen Iverson.
That’s not what he wants to talk about. OKAY!?
