The One, The Only: Allen Iverson!!!

Say It Ain’t So A.I. !!!!

According to ESPN reports, Allen Iverson is currently contemplating retirement. Love him or hate him, no player in the history of the game had the cultural impact on the game as he has. Before him there were no braids in the NBA, or dudes tatted up from head to toe. For all of his shortcomings, A.I. remained true to himself. As an undersized Shooting Guard he has carved his own niche in the league. If the “Fat Lady” has finally sang on his career, let’s not forget what he has meant to the game.

“When my career is over, I want to look in the mirror and say I did it my way”-Allen Iverson
