Say goodbye, Iverson retires from NBA

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Say goodbye, A.I.

Advertisement
Allen Iverson officially retired from the NBA on Wednesday, ending a 15-year career during which he won the 2001 MVP award and four scoring titles. Iverson retired in Philadelphia where he had his greatest successes and led the franchise to the 2001 NBA finals.

Iverson says he'll be a Sixer ''until the day I die.''

The 6-foot guard had not played in an NBA game since Feb. 20, 2010, and had a brief pro stint in Turkey. He also played for Denver, Detroit and Memphis. Iverson scored 24,368 points and was an 11-time All-Star.

Former Georgetown coach John Thompson and former Sixers great Julius Erving were in attendance for the ceremony.

Iverson says he always thought retirement would be a ''tragic'' day. But he says he's happy in his personal life and at peace with his decision.
