The evening of Saturday, March 1, was a chance to honor one of the greatest players of his generation, as the Philadelphia 76ers retired the jersey of iconic guard Allen Iverson.
Unfortunately, the current on-court product in Philly wasn't even remotely up to the standards Iverson set during his playing career.
Out West, a few key players returned from injury to lead their teams to victory. All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge returned after missing five games to lead his Portland Trail Blazers to a win over a surprisingly frisky Denver Nuggets squad.
In Sacramento, a pair of Minnesota Timberwolves starters in Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic returned to lead the Wolves over the Kings.
