The Philadelphia 76ers will be retiring Allen Iverson's jersey Saturday night before their game against the Washington Wizards, but it also looks like he will be getting something else.

It looks like the 76ers will give the former NBA MVP and 11-time All-Star a championship belt during the ceremony. The team tweeted out the following picture Saturday:

At just 6'0" and less than 170 pounds, Iverson will go down as one of the best pound-for-pound players the NBA has ever seen, so this championship belt is fitting.
