Retired Philadelphia 76ers superstar and 2001 NBA MVP Allen Iverson's 2014 documentary entitled "Iverson" is slated for an April 27 premiere.

Allen Iverson's 2014 documentary is set for an April 27 premiere. 

The documentary's premiere has a 9:30 p.m. show time at New York's Tribeca Film Festival, per Cara Cusumano of TribecaFilm.com:

"Iverson is the ultimate legacy of NBA legend Allen Iverson, who rose from a childhood of crushing poverty in Hampton, Virginia, to become an 11-time NBA All-Star and universally-recognized icon of his sport.

"Off the court, his audacious rejection of NBA convention and unapologetic embrace of hip-hop culture sent shockwaves throughout the league and influenced an entire generation.

"Told largely in Iverson's own words, the film charts the career highs and lows of one of the most distinctive and accomplished figures the sport of basketball has ever seen."  

The film, which is 97 minutes in length and directed by Zatella Beaty, stars Iverson, Tom Brokaw, Larry Brown, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony, according to the website. 

Iverson himself thanked the Tribeca Film Festival "for bringing my story out to the world" via Twitter on April 7. 

His No. 3 jersey was retired by the Sixers on March 1 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. ESPN described the historic moment: 

"Iverson officially retired in October after last playing in 2010. He won four scoring titles for the Sixers and was the 2001 MVP when he led them to the NBA Finals. He never won a championship, the lone omission in a career that is destined for the Hall of Fame.

"The Sixers may as well have turned the arena into an AI museum. Four banners greeted fans at the main concourse entrance, and photos of him were plastered all around the arena. 

"The merchandise stands sold Iverson jerseys for $130, and lower-level tickets were going for as much as for $1,280 on StubHub about an hour before the 7:30 p.m. tipoff. 

"It was StubHub's highest-priced 76ers home game this season, with the median ticket going for $109. 

"The fans loved him, and he blew them kisses after the No. 3 was raised to show how much he loved them back.

"'I am Philly,' Iverson said. 'It's always going to be that way.'"

Washington  Wizards guard John Wall, who scored 17 points and dished out 16 assists that night, recorded Iverson's halftime ceremony. 

He told ESPN Iverson was his role model growing up.

"He was my role model and I looked up to him. Being a small guard, that's where I took a lot of my game from. The city embraced him and let him be who he was as a person. He always gave his best effort."

 

The 38-year-old Iverson, the first overall pick of the 1996 NBA draft, averaged 26.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 2.2 steals during a 14-year pro career, per Basketball-Reference.com. 

Philly.com's Matt Mullin confirms tickets for the premiere are all sold out in his April 8 update
