The Philadelphia 76ers are an iconic franchise in the NBA, with many great players coming through the organization and two titles won.
Although he never won a title in a 76ers uniform and ended his career in the league without any rings, few players had as much of an impact on the game and the basketball culture as superstar point guard Allen Iverson.
On Wednesday, the one-time NBA MVP and former 76ers superstar turned 48 years old, with the league wishing the Hall of Famer a very happy birthday via NBA History’s Twitter account.

Despite his size and being arguably under six-feet tall, Iverson dominated the competition throughout his prime with the 76ers, as teams had no idea how to contain the superstar, who was relentless while on the basketball floor.
Iverson was named an NBA All-Star 11 times during his career, winning All-Star Game MVP twice during those 11 appearances on the main stage against the best of the best in the league.
Along with being an All-Star for the majority of his career, Iverson made an All-NBA team seven times, with three of those times being First-Team All-NBA.
The 76ers legend was also named NBA Rookie of the Year in one of the most talented draft classes in league history, which he shared with fellow stars like Steve Nash, Ray Allen, Kobe Bryant, Peja Stojakovic, Antoine Walker, Jermaine O’Neal, Stephon Marbury, Marcus Camby, and Derek Fisher.
As a four-time NBA scoring champion, Iverson was named to the NBA 75th Anniversary Team and will go down as one of the greatest guards in league history.NEXT: CJ McCollum Comments On Damian Lillard's Future In Portland
