The Philadelphia 76ers will retire Allen Iverson’s jersey on March 1 | Ball Don't Lie - Yahoo Sports

Since last playing in the NBA in 2011, NBA legend Allen Iverson has gone through a not particularly respectable period of time typified by news stories alternately unfortunate and ridiculous. However, things appear to be looking up for Iverson, in part because he finally announced his official retirement from basketball shortly before the Philadelphia 76ers' opener in October. The hope is that, with this chapter closed, Iverson can transition into a less volatile lifestyle and build on many of the fond memories fans have of his career.

Now, the Sixers have decided to formalize Iverson's meaning to the franchise and honor his excellent career. As announced Wednesday, the franchise will retire his iconic No. 3 jersey on March 1.
