The latest addition to the 76ers Legend Walk at the Camden practice facility will be A.I. –

PHILADELPHIA – MARCH 1, 2024 – The Philadelphia 76ers will host a sculpture unveiling ceremony honoring Allen Iverson on Friday, April 12 at Penn Medicine Philadelphia 76ers Training Complex. As one of the most decorated athletes ever to play for the organization, Iverson was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2016 and selected as the NBA’s Most Valuable Player in 2001. This announcement comes on the 10th anniversary of Iverson’s No. 3 being retired by the franchise.

Named the NBA’s Rookie of the Year in 1997, Iverson spent his first 12 NBA seasons with Philadelphia, after the franchise selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft. The 15-year pro was named an All-Star 11 times, received seven All-NBA selections, was a four-time NBA scoring champion, and led the league in steals on three occasions. Iverson, a member of the NBA 75th Anniversary Team, returned to play his final NBA season with the 76ers in 2010.


It was only a matter of time. A.I. will join a bust group that includes Charles Barkley, Wilt Chamberlain, Mo Cheeks, Billy Cunningham, Dr. J, Hal Greer, Bobby Jones, Moses Malone, and Dolph Schayes. The statues are lined up outside of the Camden facility and players and staff walk by them while entering the building. They’re also gonna honor Iverson on April 14th at the Brooklyn home game.

What should the statue depict? Hand to ear? A.I. stepping over Tyronn Lue? Crossing up Michael Jordan? Walking into a TGI Friday’s? A classic “Iverson cut” for a pull-up 20 footer? The overtime steal against the Wizards?

Hopefully it’s a good statue and not like the one made for Saudi penalty merchant Cristiano Ronaldo:
