“You have to show me the fool that says dreams don’t come true,” Iverson to the sellout crowd. “Because they do. I love you, Philadelphia. I love y’all for accepting me and letting me be me. Letting me make my mistakes, letting me be human, let me learn from them. Just embracing me and making this my home forever.”
Between Mo Cheek’s number 10 and Charles Barkley’s number 34 in the Wells Fargo Center rafters now hangs Allen Iverson’s number 3. The 11 time All-Star, 7 time All-NBA, 4 time scoring champ and 2001 MVP became the 8th player in Sixers franchise to have his number retired. Wilt, Billy Cunningham, Hal Greer, Bobby Jones and DR J were the others.
Dr J along with NBA legend Moses Malone were also in attendance to honor Iverson. A lot of the league’s best who couldn’t attend the game paid their respects to Iverson by posting about the “pound for pound” great on Twitter and Instagram.
