Most Awkward NBA Press Conferences in Recent Memory

Unfortunately, press conferences are just a part of life for NBA players. They are something that is required and most would probably rather not do them if they could avoid them. Press conferences generally can either be super uneventful or talked about for the next 10 years (especially when Allen Iverson is talkin' about practice).

What follows is a compilation of some of the most disgustingly entertaining, painful and ill-advised press conferences and press conference answers in the NBA in recent memory. Expect many appearances from non-media savvy types like LeBron, Dwight and the beloved Stan Van Gundy.

So let's take a gander. Keep in mind that these are in no particular order.
