Allen Iverson was in the building to toss up the honorary first tip before Game 6 of the Sixers-Celtics series. The place went nuts.

As rumored late last week and confirmed this afternoon by Sixers CEO Adam Aron, legendary Philadelphia fan favorite Allen Iverson was invited to toss up the honorary first tip prior to Game 6.

Iverson walked out to center court sporting a No. 23 Lou Williams jersey, cupped his hand to his ear asking the Philly crowd to get loud like he did so many times before. He delivered the game ball, hugged Havertown’s most famous NBA official Joey Crawford, and then hugged his boy Lou Williams along with other Sixers like Evan Turner and Coach Collins.
