Default Allen Iverson says he's retiring

as per Steven A. Smith, appearing as I speak, on Fox Sports Radio's Chris Myers-Steve Hartman show. Expect an official announcement later today.

Well I guess that officially makes me old, as I so clearly recall the moment he stepped into this league as a young high-riser and now he's all aged and whatnot.

It's not hate: it's reality.

That's not a bad idea at all. It could actually help Boston if AI would be kind enough to come off the bench. And I don't even like the guy and never have. But this is a good idea.

Should have retired this summer, since he couldn't handle being a backup.

The Pete Maravich of his era.

It's a bad choice to not go ring chasing?... Now I've heard it all on ISH

If AI truly is retiring instead of going to another garbage team, or a stacked elite team... he gets my respect. He was basically considered a top 5 guard by virtually everyone for his entire career except his rookie season, and his final season (which would be counted as Detroit, not Memphis).

Been saying this for a while now. I don't know why, but I could see him getting along well with KG, Sheed, and the rest.
