103013_Iverson-retires_600In front of a crowd of reporters at the Wells Fargo Center today, Allen Iverson finally closed the book on his basketball career. It was a decision which had taken Iverson three years of contemplation, before he finally decided what he believes is the best route for him and his family at this stage of his life.

Iverson statistically is one of the most decorated Sixers players of all time and — like LeBron James stated earlier this week — is likely the best pound-for-pound basketball player to ever play the game.

He was the 2001 NBA MVP and an 11-time All-Star. He won four NBA scoring titles, three steals titles, was a part of three NBA First Team’s and Second Team’s and won the 1997 NBA Rookie of the Year Award.

Businessinsider.com has a quick but funny post and pictures on the progression of Andrew Bynum’s hair which apparently is having an impact on the style trends of NBA players…

“…one of the most talked about players in the NBA this season because of his hair…The NBA world only has so much room for fashion and style…Last year, it was dominated by outrageous shirts, pants, and glasses at post-game press conference.  This year, it’s all Bynum. ”

We were hoping this year woyld be “all Bynum” as well — only on the court for the 76ers, not in the online fashion world. 

To bad that bumb knee won’t progress as nicely as his hair.

After the jump, read the rest of the businessinsider.com story and a look at some of the best hair-dos in 76ers history…

Late last week, ESPN.com launched a project that with the help of online fan voting attempted to determine the five ultimate players (by position) in every NBA franchise’s history.  It’s a great and fun post and if you haven’t voted yet, we highly suggest you take five minutes of your time to do so. 

You can view the up-to-date results of the voting for the 76ers all-time team by clicking here

In our opinion the voting for the Sixers all-time starting five has been very predictable and while there’s nothing “wrong” with the all-time lineup the fans have assembled for the 76ers franchise, Philadunkia’s Tom Sunnegren believes that by bending a few of the voting rules he was able to put together a squad that would trump the team the voters have put out on the floor.
