On Saturday night, the Philadelphia 76ers officially retired Allen Iverson’s No. 3 jersey, but that isn’t the only honor they bestowed on the 11-time All Star.
Among the bevy of gifts, the team presented the legendary guard with a WWE-style championship belt that reads “Pound for Pound One of The Greatest.” The 76ers selected the 6-foot, 165-pound guard with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft.
But the 76ers didn’t stop there. They also gave Iverson a fishing boat that is aptly named “The Answer.”
Iverson spent his first 10 seasons with Philadelphia, winning four scoring titles, taking home the MVP award and leading his team to the 2001 NBA Finals — the team’s first appearance since 1983. He ranks third in franchise history in field goals made (6,962), first in three-point field goals (885), third in assists (4,385), second in steals (1,644), and averaged 27.6 points per game.
