You’d be hard pressed to find someone more loved by the fans in the history of Philadelphia sports than Allen Iverson.

There were people turned off at first by his style — the cornrows, the tattoos, the guy bringing hip hop into the NBA — but they were won over by his effort, his passion, his love of the game. Iverson led the Sixers to the NBA Finals back in 2001.

Those fans let Iverson know just  how much they loved and appreciated him during the jersey retirement Saturday night.
