8 – Allen Iverson, Philadelphia 76ers (1996-2007, 2009-2010)

The Answer was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers number one overall in 1996 in hopes of finally landing a generational player that could lead the team back to prominence. He did not disappoint as not only did he made his mark on the Sixers but in the entire NBA as well. Iverson dominated in ways no one imagine for a man of his size. He led the Sixers to a finals appearance in 2001 – same year he won the MVP award. After reaching the apex, Iverson saw his career on a downward slope as news about his discontent with the situation in Philadelphia prompted the Sixers to trade him to the Denver Nuggets. After one full season of classic A.I. in Denver, Iverson never found the answer to his woes as his play declined along with his brand. Fortunately for him, he was given a second chance in the City of Brotherly Love as the Sixers signed him as a free agent. The offer of redemption saw Iverson in a highly emotional return to the city that made him. Apparently, the move was not for the Sixers to win more games but to patch things up with one of the best players in franchise history.
