Although Allen Iverson hasn't played in the NBA since 2010, and hasn't even played professional basketball since leaving the Turkish league in 2011, he refused to close the door on his playing career.

But reality has finally settled in for the dynamic scorer known simply as "The Answer."

This is more than just the end of an era. It's the last scene for one of the modern day basketball world's greatest tragedies.

Allen Iverson, a first-ballot Hall of Fame talent, completely erased from the NBA landscape. Comeback plans officially scrapped, replaced by both the finality and uncertainty of retirement.

His legend, mythical in nature even to those of us fortunate enough to have witnessed it, is now forever tied to an infamous sound byte as recognizable as his devastating crossover.
