Allen Iverson “Answers” the Hall of Fame call, and now will forever be enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame class of 2016.
The 1st overall pick in 1996, Iverson instantaneously became a fan favorite in the city of brotherly love, and gave us fans some of the best years of professional sports, which in Philly may not mean much recently…
We all remember the famous step over verse the Lakers in the NBA finals, the endless crossovers, and the excitement EVERY time AI stepped on the court.
Iverson will be enshrined on Sept. 9 in Springfield, Massachusetts, along with Shaquille O’Neal, Yao Ming, Tom Izzo, Sheryl Swoops, Jerry Reinsdorf, referee Darell Garretson and coach John McLendon, while Zelmo Beaty and Cumberland Posey will be enshrined posthumously.
