Bleachers report
Three years after the NBA decided it was done with Allen Iverson, the 11-time All-Star is expected to officially declare that the feeling is now mutual.

According to Tzvi Twersky of Slam, a source close to Iverson said a retirement announcement is imminent.

Iverson last played in 2010 for the Philadelphia 76ers in what turned out to be a farewell tour. By that point, he wasn’t the same player that had wowed fans around the world with his fearless drives and brash attitude.

But nobody will remember the Answer as he was in his final years. Instead, people will celebrate his incredible toughness and truly remarkable athleticism. At just 6’0″ and generously listed at 165 pounds, Iverson was never afraid to throw his willow-thin body into traffic. He took more hard falls and suffered more brutal contact than any player of his era.

Yet he kept getting up.
