A few days ago, the Philadelphia 76ers finally decided to retire the number three jersey of one of the best players in their franchise, Allen Iverson.
“The Answer” as most fans would remember him, he was drafted number one overall by Philadelphia. A true fan favorite because of his “killer-crossovers and ankle breakers”, Iverson played 11 seasons for Philadelphia amassing 27.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.2 three pointers made while with the team. Iverson was a Rookie of the Year winner, 11-time all-star (2000-2010), former MVP (2000-01) and Four-Time Scoring Champion (98-99, 00-01, 01-02, 04-05).
Earlier last week, various sites reported that recently bought out Danny Granger will sign with the Los Angeles Clippers. THAT alone shows you how much the organization has grown; from a team headed to the lottery almost every draft, the Clippers are now a destination for players who want to win a title. If you closely look at the Clippers roster, you can see that the players they mostly have are either their draft picks or players who came in via trade. ESPN reported that the Spurs, Rockets, Mavs and Heat were all interested in getting Granger off waivers but he chose to play for the Clippers because of Chris Paul and Doc Rivers.
