We thought the Iverson jersey retirement ceremony was very well done and Mike Sielski of agrees with us.

Ben Golliver of’s The Point Forward blog has a great post (with photos) of last night’s events.

Yahoo Sports has a video tribute of Iverson’s Top 10 plays as a Sixer.  The Tyrone Lue step over play comes in at #4.  C’mon…

In his speech Iverson thanked Dei Lynam for her hard work.  Lynam returns the gesture with a post on which also has the video of the full ceremony.

Via Jason Wolf of the USA Today, Iverson calls jersey retirement “bittersweet”.

Lynam also has a post that captures Adam Silver’s thoughts on Iverson’s impact on the culture around the game.
Great post by Frankie Hobbs on Iverson’s legacy in the NBA.
Max Rappaport of has a look back at all of the evening’s festivities.
