Both on and off the court, Iverson was known for signature tattoos and cornrows. He was also one of the league's most vocal opponents of the NBA commissioner David Stern-backed athlete dress code banning athletes from wearing chains, pendants and other items when on the bench during games or on team business. Iverson is also credited with first popularizing the shooting sleeves commonly worn today by stars like Carmelo Anthony. (Photo: Ethan Miller/Getty Images)
