Allen Iverson earned his place in Philadelphia 76ers history a long time ago but the team has just revealed that he is receiving a very special, rare honor. The Sixers said the legendary guard will become only the tenth player in franchise history to receive a sculpture at the team's training complex located in Camden, New Jersey.
The team is set to reveal Iverson's sculpture in an April 12 ceremony, when they will also host a special celebration for the Hall of Famer before the team plays the Brooklyn Nets.
Charles Barkley, Moses Malone, Wilt Chamberlain, Julius Erving, Billy Cunningham, Hal Greer, Dolph Schayes, Bobby Jones, and Maurice Cheeks are the only other 76ers players who have received sculptures like this one.
Iverson's sculpture will be found on the 76ers' Legends Walk, a section of the training facility that honors the great Philadelphia 76ers of years past.
During his 12 seasons with the 76ers, Iverson averaged 27.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 6.1 assists and earned four scoring titles as well as winning the 2000-01 NBA MVP award. He also led the 76ers on an Eastern Conference title run that year too.
Since retiring, Iverson has made many media appearances and has also earned his place in the Hall of Fame and NBA 75th Anniversary Team too. He is still considered by many to be one of the greatest and most inventive and special guards of all time.
