NBA legend Allen Iverson is considere as one of the best superstar to ever played with the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Sixers will honor Iverson on Saturday, March 1, by retiring his No. 3 jersey at halftime against the Washington Wizards.


“The Answer” spent the first 10 years of his NBA career in Philly, making seven All-Star games during that span. He led the Sixers to an NBA Finals appearance in 2000-01, earning the league’s Most Valuable Player award that season by averaging a league-leading 31.1 points and 2.5 steals per game to accompany 4.6 assists and 3.8 rebounds.

Based on the organization’s official Instagram account, “Sixers players will wear a special ‘Iverson Forever’ patch on their jersey and an Iverson #3 on their shooting shirts pregame.”

Iverson as the greatest player ever played

"Pound-for-pound, probably the greatest player who ever played," Miami four-time MVP LeBron James said of Iverson in October.

At a listed height and weight of 6’0”, 165 pounds, he didn’t let stature get in the way of a phenomenal career.

Iverson won the NBA’s Rookie of the Year Award in 1996-97, was the NBA steals three times (2001-03), won four scoring titles (1999, 2001-02, 2005) and made the All-NBA First Team three times (1999, 2001, 2005).

The 38-year-old ranks 21st on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
