This is the Reebok Question Mid "#1 Pick" edition released to celebrate his final retirement from the game of basketball. Iverson was known as "The Answer" (his 'street ball' name) and his first Reebok model was rightfully named the "Question". The "Question" featured a full Reebok Hexalite midsole giving it tremendous comfort and impact protection. This model features the Philadelphia 76'ers uniform colors of mostly blue, white and red. This "#1 Pick" edition features a mostly Reebok Royal suede upper with a white speckled midsole and icy blue outsole. On the back heel there is a number "1" embroidered in white and Reebok Red, which also make up the rest of the accents. With the return of the Kamikaze II (2) and Shaq models this year, the "Question" has come back with perfect timing. This "#1 Pick" edition is very limited and is one of the more special "Iverson" releases we've seen. Be sure to add this pair to your collection today.
In 1996 Allen Iverson was selected (by the Philadelphia 76'ers) as the number one pick in the NBA Draft, in a talented class which included the likes of Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, Ray Allen, Stephon Marbury and more. He became the shortest NBA first pick of all time, listed at an even 6 feet tall. Due to all of the talent many argued that Philadelphia should've chosen someone else but that was all said and done when Iverson went on to win the NBA Rookie of the Year Award in 1997. His first season he averaged 23 points with 7 assists and 2 steals per game which in a different era would've landed him a spot in the All-Star Game.
