Ice Cube's Basketball League just got bigger

Allen Iverson Will Join Ice Cube's 3-On-3 League BIG3: Report

"That's O'Shea [Jackson, Ice Cube's dad name]".

Allen Iverson is among a plethora of NBA luminaries taking part in Ice Cube's new BIG3 basketball league.

"A lot of these guys can still play once they retire - just not the back-to-backs or four games in five nights", he said. The player/coach position is something that's built into each team, which makes sense given all the league's participants are going to be roughly Luke Walton's age. He joins Chauncey Billups, Kenyon Martin, Rashard Lewis, Jermaine O'Neal, Stephen Jackson and Jason Williams as other former National Basketball Association players who will serve the same role as Iverson.
