76ers retire Allen Iverson's No. 3 jersey

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - March 1, 2014

Iverson received a roaring standing ovation in a ceremony that stamped him as one of the franchise's all-time greats.

Iverson was emotional as he thanked former teammates and friends and had his No. 3 retired at halftime of Saturday's game against Washington.

Iverson officially retired in October after last playing in 2010. He won four scoring titles for the Sixers and was the 2001 MVP when he led them to the NBA Finals. He never won a championship, the lone omission in a stellar career.
