Allen Iverson has left the building. Officially.
Out of the game for over two years now, yesterday an emotional yet content AI finally bid farewell to his NBA life and announced his retirement at Wells Fargo Center, home of the Philadelphia 76ers.
After the announcement, the NBA took some time to honor AI and everything he contributed to the game. Via its Instagram account, the NBA led fans like myself who still aren’t quite prepared or willing to accept AI’s retirement, on a trip down memory lane.
Here are some of AI’s best career moments, both seen and unseen.
THE DENVER DAYS. JOKES WITH MELO.
THE BIRTHDAY BOY.
THE FAMOUS TYRONN LUE STEPOVER.
THE PUTBACK OVER MARCUS CAMBY.
AND FINALLY, THE CROSSOVER. AI VS MJ EDITION.
Thanks for the memories, AI. If you missed yesterday’s press conference, go here to check it out.
