You know the old adage, “Practice makes perfect?” Apparently, that doesn’t hold true for  the rich, famous and self-destructive.

Yes, we’re talkin’ ‘bout “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen and his exclusive interview with NBC’s Jeff Rossen that aired Monday on “Today” in which, among other things, Sheen references Iverson’s infamous 2002 press conference in which the now retired player says the following regarding the importance -- or unimportance  --  of practice.

”It’s easy to sum it up if you’re just talking about practice. We’re sitting here, and I’m supposed to be the franchise player, and we’re talking about practice. I mean listen, we’re sitting here talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, but we’re talking about practice.”

Following A.I.’s lead, Sheen tells Rossen that he’s never missed a day on the job that cost anyone money -- claiming that he’s only ever missed rehearsal, or as he refers to it -- practice.

“I missed practice. We’re talking about practice...practice is for amateurs, you know?”

Maybe Sheen can find a hit sit-com in Turkey?
