Happy 42nd birthday, A.I.!

In 1996, the Philadelphia 76ers chose Allen Iverson as the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft. Since then, Iverson had been recognized as an NBA Rookie of the Year, NBA MVP, 11-time All Star and a two-time NBA All Star Game MVP, and inducted to the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame. On A.I.’s birthday, take a look below to see how he evolved through his years in the NBA.

Damn…I'll be 42 tomorrow.
