Even after 20 years, the love between Allen Iverson and Philadelphia still runs deep. The kid from Virginia became a man in Philly. And it’s been 15 years since he led an under-manned Sixers squad to the Finals and won a game against Shaquille O’Neal and the Lakers all by his damn self. That anniversary was marked by Mitchell & Ness with the release of the black Sixers jersey at their Philly-based store this past weekend.
Before all the star power showed up, Mitchell & Ness made sure to get the party started with a DJ out on the street and lots of dancing, too. It was a celebration of all that both AI and Philly have done for each other. The love is still very strong, by the way. When AI came through, the crowd’s hysteria reached a fever pitch. Everyone wanted a piece of him. But he was chilling, eating snacks and relaxing on the couch. Cold as ice.
