Allen Iverson Plans to Retire

According to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, Allen Iverson plans to retire from the NBA. Iverson is one of my favorite players of all time, and is arguably the best small guard in the history of the League. I remember playing basketball as a kid in his Reebok shoes.

A couple stats:

One of the NBA’s great scorers, Iverson entered this season with a career average of 27.1 points that ranked fifth all time.

If this is the end for Iverson, he leaves with four scoring titles and a playoff scoring average of 29.7 points that ranks second only to Michael Jordan.

I hope that A.I. can get another chance in the NBA this year, but if not he’ll retire as one of the greatest players of this era.
