Since announcing his retirement Sunday night, Kobe Bryant has received love from fans and colleagues alike.

Among those colleagues was former Philadelphia 76ers All-Star, Allen Iverson, who paid tribute to the Lakers player with a heartfelt message.

The messaged thanked Kobe for all he’s done for the NBA, and A.I. thanked him for helping him improve his game.

As Kobe’s “farewell tour,” begins, Black Mamba received a standing ovation from his hometown of Philadelphia, along with his framed high school basketball jersey, which was presented to him by famed 76er, Dr. J.
