Guess you can go home again: After beginning his career in Philadelphia, Allen Iverson last week re-signed with his O.G. squad and is slated to start for the 76ers when they host the Denver Nuggets tonight at 7 p.m. (NBA TV). After a storied 11-season run as a Sixer, A.I. was traded to Denver in 2006 and has since had stints at a couple other teams, including this year's brief—and awkward—dalliance with the Memphis Grizzlies. Iverson has never been the same since leaving Philly, so A.I. fans are looking forward to his return to the familiar red, white, and blue. He may be 34 now, but we're sure he's got something to prove. And at 5-15, the Sixers can't get much worse.

To get ready for what will undoubtedly be an emotional night at the Wachovia Center, we've compiled The Top 10 Allen Iverson Moments From His First Tenure in Philly. Read on to see why A.I. is such a legend in the City of Brotherly Love...

REEBOK RELEASES "THE QUESTION"
DATE: 1996
WHY: Allen Iverson instantly made Reebok cool when he signed with the brand after being drafted by the 76ers in the summer of '96. Reebok's first A.I. shoe—The Question—did not disappoint, becoming one of the first non-Jordan signature shoes to cause store frenzy. Reebok had long planned a re-release of The Question this year, but things were looking grim when A.I. was talking retirement last month. In one of the more fortuitous marketing coinky-dinks ever, Iverson re-upped with Philly and now the the 'Bok's current Question ad campaign looks not only timely, but prophetic. Reports are that Iverson will be rocking the O.G. colorway tonight.

A.I. CROSSES OVER MJ
DATE: March 12, 1997
WHY: Pre-YouTube (and DirecTV League Pass), Iverson's crossover on Jordan was almost like an urban legend when it first happened. Chicago won the game, 108-104, but A.I. announced his arrival. Without tattoos.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A.I. DUNKS ON MARCUS CAMBY
DATE: April 19, 1998
WHY: He may not get up like he used to, but let's not forget that Iverson used to yam on folks on the regular. Here, the back of Camby Man's neck gets rudely introduced to some Newport Nuts. A GOAT-worthy dunk from the lil' GOAT.

JEWELZ, "40 BARS"
DATE: 2000
WHY: "Come to me with faggot tendencies/"You'll be sleepin where the maggots be"... well, yeah, we can see why the sensitive types caught feelings about A.I.'s first rap song, but put aside the controversy for a sec—Iverson (as "Jewelz") has to be one of the best ballin' rappers since...since...shit, since Dana Barros.

A.I. WINS 2001 NBA ALL-STAR GAME MVP
DATE: February 11, 2001
WHY: Iverson's best-year-ever got going when he led the East's furious comeback and was awarded MVP of the 2001 NBA All-Star Game in D.C., the last one that was actually any good. Marbury must watch the clip above and cry. Or eat more petroleum jelly.

A.I. WINS 2001 NBA MVP
DATE: May 15, 2001
WHY: After almost being traded the previous summer, Iverson had his best season ever in the 2000-01 campaign, winning the scoring title (31.1 ppg) and leading the Sixers to the best record in the Eastern Conference. The year's major story was his rollercoaster relationship with coach Larry Brown, which he alludes to in the above clip. Or at least tries to.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A.I. STEPS OVER TYRONN LUE
DATE: June 6, 2001
WHY: Iverson basically single-handedly led the Sixers to an upset victory over the Lakers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, and this climatic jumper sealed the deal. Yup, badass. L.A. may have won the title, but this play>>>Kobe and Shaq pretend-hugging.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"PRACTICE?!?!?!?"
DATE: May 7, 2002
WHY: The Brown-A.I. beef culminated in this legendary press conference. Really, what more can we say?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A.I. DROPS 60 ON ORLANDO
DATE: February 12, 2005
WHY: Probably his last great moment as a Sixer (before now), A.I. ran roughshod over the Magic in his only career 60-point game. Vintage Iverson.

DRESS CODE? FUCK A DRESS CODE!
DATE: October 17, 2005
WHY: One could easily argue that David Stern's dress code was instituted specifically for A.I. and the doo-rag/fitted/throwback steez that he popularized around the league. When the new rules were announced, Iverson immediately denounced them as racist and unfair. He eventually acquiesced, but still managed to rock a suit in a way that gave a middle-finger to authority. Take that!
