Glad to see the Sixers are doing the right thing and wasting no time in giving Allen Iverson his much deserved respect.  

Iverson officially announced his retirement from the NBA at a press conference prior to the Sixers home opener, which he was in attendance at.

Now the franchise has announced that they will be retiring Ivy's number "3" jersey later this season on March 1st.  

The Philadelphia 76ers today announced that they will officially retire Allen Iverson’s number “3” in a special halftime ceremony on Saturday, March 1, 2014 when the Sixers host the Washington Wizards. [...]

Allen Iverson is, without question, one of the most iconic players to ever wear the Sixers uniform,” said Philadelphia 76ers Chief Executive Officer Scott O’Neil. “Allen left everything out on the court and no one could ever question his heart – he was relentless, fearless and pound-for-pound, was one of the greatest to ever play the game.”
