Allen Iverson Reitres, The Only Way He Can

Alone in a crowd Announced today in Slam Magazine, nearly as dated a document as the player, Allen Iverson announcing his retirement. It is, of course a courtesy to call this a retirement.

Allen Iverson Loomed Large Over NBA While Scurrying Between Giants’ Feet

Saying Goodbye to A.I. and Remembering the Garden in 1996

One Night at the Garden…Doug Pensinger/Getty Images It was March of 1996, and I was 19 years-old. To be honest, I can’t remember why we had tickets for the Big East Championship game at Madison Square Garden or what I was even doing home (Spring break?).
