Allen Iverson Will Have His Jersey Number Retired by the Sixers in March

…And the Basketball Gods are pleased…


Earlier today the Philadelphia 76ers announced that they are planning on retiring Iverson’s jersey number 3 later this season. AI is in exclusive company as he joins Julius Erving, Maurice Cheeks, Wilt Chamberlain, Hal Greer, Bobby Jones, Billy Cunningham, and Charles Barkley up in the rafters.

“Allen Iverson is, without question, one of the most iconic players to ever wear the Sixers uniform,” Sixers CEO Scott O’Neil said in a statement that was released today. “Allen left everything out on the court and no one could ever question his heart.”
