I don't know how he does it... 

Allen Iverson of the Philadelphia 76ers spent all day today keeping it real, the 2,548th straight day he has done so. The mark is thought to be a record for keeping it real for consecutive days by an athlete.


Iverson’s string of keeping it real dates back to November of 1996, when he ended a streak of 1,194 days of keeping it real at that time by watching an episode of “7th Heaven.” His previous instance of not keeping it real came in the summer of 1993 after he listened to, and enjoyed, a Bon Jovi song.
