Panini America revealed that new Basketball Hall of Famer and former Philadelphia 76ers great Allen Iverson will be in attendance at tonight’s event in Atlantic City, N.J. He’s the sixth star announced for the event.
Iverson averaged 26.7 and 6.2 assists a game in his 14-year career with the 76ers, Nuggets, Pistons and Grizzlies. The 11-time All-Star will be inducted into the Hall of Fame next month.
