Sixers To Retire Allen Iverson's Number 3 Jersey

The Philadelphia 76ers have announced today that they will be retiring Allen Iverson’s number 3 jersey on March 1st. The ceremony will take place during halftime vs the Washington Wizards.

Sixers CEO Scott O’Neil stated,

“Allen Iverson is, without question, one of the most iconic players to ever wear the Sixers uniform. Allen left everything out on the court and no one could ever question his heart — he was relentless, fearless and pound-for-pound, was one of the greatest to ever play the game.”
