Allen Iverson made it official, retiring from the game of basketball at a press conference on Wednesday. He will be honored later at the Sixers season home opener.

At his press conference Iverson talked about Michael Jordan, Larry Brown and John Thompson among the big influences on his basketball life.

But he also has a special spot for former teammate Aaron McKie.
