Allen Iverson to Officially Announce His Retirement From League He Hasn’t Played in Since Before the iPad

This reminds me of the time Wayne Ellington felt it necessary to hold a press conference announcing his return to North Carolina for his junior season.

From Slam Online:

Allen Iverson is prepared to officially announce his retirement from the NBA in the coming days, a source close to the native of Virginia told SLAM.

Iverson, 38, played his last professional basketball in Turkey in 2011. Before that, he appeared in his final NBA game, as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, in 2010.

When he last spoke publicly, at a Sixers game on March 30, Iverson answered a question about continuing his career by saying, “My No. 1 goal is trying to accomplish to be the best dad that I can. And if basketball is in my near future, then God will make that happen. But if not, I had a great ride and I’ve done a lot of special things that a lot of guys have not been able to accomplish and people thought I couldn’t accomplish.”

We’ll always miss AI… but what the hell?

    He might be a street thug but I’ll always love Bubba Chuck.
    He left more of his skin and blood and soul out there on the court than any other Sixer ever has.
    I’ll never forget when he re-signed with the Sixers and when he was introduced he got on his knees and kissed the Sixers emblem at center court. A Philly guy all the way.

    Nothing but love for AI. That guy gave everything he had every game. And those Reebok commercials he did with Jadakiss were off the chain.
