Miami Heat superstar LeBron James has been asked plenty of questions during press conferences since the team lost Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but Saturday's presser ended on a high note.

Dwyane Wade asked LeBron the final question of the press conference, wondering when he would be coming back to practice. In response, LeBron made a reference to Allen Iverson's famous "practice" rant. 

The timing is perfect, as today is actually Iverson's 39th birthday.
