Allen Iverson, who was named the NBA Most Valuable Player in 2001 when he led the Philadelphia 76ers to the NBA Finals, will have his jersey number retired by the Sixers, the team announced Wednesday.
The 76ers will retire Iverson's No. 3 uniform on March 1 in a ceremony before a home game against Washington.
He becomes the eighth 76er to have his jersey retired, joining a group that includes Julius Erving, Charles Barkley, Wilt Chamberlain, Maurice Cheeks, Billy Cunningham, Bobby Jones and Hal Greer.
