Allen Iverson

The Answer finally calls it quits

One of the most polarizing and complex individuals in NBA history is hanging up his jersey. The NBA may have retired Allen Iverson years ago, but now the man calls for retirement on his own terms.

Iverson is a surefire hall of famer as he was a league MVP in 2001 and had led the league in scoring four times. In 2001 the same year as his MVP award Iverson single handedly delivered his Philadelphia 76ers an NBA Finals birth. The 11-time All-Star averaged 32 ppg that year along with close to three steals per game.

Towards the end of his career Iverson could have helped a few teams make championship runs, but his unwillingness to come off the bench and change playing styles scared teams away.
