Allen Iverson, the Philadelphia 76ers and NBA legend had $500K worth of jewelry stolen from the Sofitel Hotel yesterday morning.
The Philadelphia Police Department has a photo and a description of the suspect. Also, they asking for your help. They say that the man is about 20 years old and around 6ft tall. He had on a black jacket, black pants, a red shirt, and black and white shoes. The suspect reportedly went inside of the hotel Allen Iverson was staying at and grabbed a backpack with A.I.’s ice.
Allen Iverson is an 11 time NBA All-Star, 1997 NBA Rookie of the Year, 2001 regular season MVP, has scored over 24,000 career points and upwards of 5,000 assists. A.I. took over the Philadelphia 76ers on the court. His crossover revolutionized the game of basketball. Then, his stardom took over Philadelphia off the court.
Any Allen Iverson fan would know exactly what you are talking about when you say “We’re talking about practice.” Furthermore, an Allen Iverson fan also remembers when A.I. crossed over the great Michael Jordan and hit a jump shot over the goat. Also, an A.I. fan would remember when he crossed over Tyronn Lue and had the famous step over in the 2001 NBA finals.
As a result, A.I. created a new form of a way to disrespect someone in the game.
Iverson undeniably one of the most legendary basketball players of all time. In addition, what he did for the 76ers and for the city Philadelphia has to be appreciated. For someone in Philadelphia to steal his jewelry is sad and unnecessary.
All things considered, if you have any information on this crime please contact the Philadelphia Police Department.
