Allen Iverson, who previously played on the Philadelphia 76ers, retired in October after last playing in 2010. His former team retired his number 3 jersey during Saturday night’s game against Washington. Way above the court in the Wells Fargo Center, they hung Iverson’s banner in-between Maurice Cheeks’ number 10 and Charles Barkley’s number 34. Iverson is the eighth player in the Sixers franchise to have his number retired.They all wanted me to talk about how much y’all loved me,” he said, “but trust me, the feeling was mutual.” Iverson won four scoring titles for the 76ers and was the 2001 MVP when he led his team to the NBA Finals. I don’t regret anything,” Iverson said when he announced he was retiring back in October. If I could take back all the mistakes that I made throughout my career, I would have had a perfect career. I would have missed no shots. I would have made no turnovers. I would have went right instead of going left when I was supposed to, every game. I would have got on (I-76) at 4 o’clock instead of getting on 76 at 5. I can’t take anything back. So I don’t regret it.” Iverson, who put together hip-hop culture and hoops like no player before, was perhaps at his peak in his 5th NBA season. The 165 lbs. guard averaged 31.1 points, and propped an entire franchise on his 6-foot frame all the way to finals.
