Philadelphia 76ers honored 11-time All-Star point guard Allen Iverson with a ceremony retiring his No. 3 jersey at the Wells Fargo Center last night.

He was joined by ex-wife Tawana and his kids, Tiara, Duece, Isaiah, Messiah and Dream. During his speech Iverson thanked basketball star Michael Jordan, his ex-wife Tawana (which is shocking after all the divorce drama and kid kidnapping claims), his kids, his family, the 76ers’ organization, and most importantly, his fans.

So what does A.I. plan to do upon retiring (although he hasn't played since 2010)? Fishing! Iverson received a boat as a gift named 'The Answer.' Is this the answer Kanye was referring to Sway about? Ha!

Many fans gave their praises to A.I. on social media and so did his fellow NBA mates:
