Allen Iverson AppearanceThe Philadelphia Sixers honored 11-time All-Star guard Allen Iverson by retiring his No. 3 jersey during a ceremony at halftime of a game against the Washington Wizards at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday.

“You have to show me the fool that says dreams don’t come true,” Iverson said. “Because they do. I love you, Philadelphia. I love y’all for accepting me and letting me be me. Letting me make my mistakes, letting me be human, let me learn from them. Just embracing me and making this my home forever.”

Wearing a black jacket, black pants, black glasses, a black hat and gold chains, Iverson addressed the crowd at center court in front of a line of his old jerseys. He was welcomed by the Philadelphia crowd with “M-V-P” chants.

“And now it’s time to party,” Iverson said, concluding his speech.

The ceremony culminated with a red banner bearing Iverson’s name, the Sixers name and logo and the No. 3 in white being raised to the rafters. Tina Turner’s “Simply The Best” played as the banner proceeded upwards.
