ALLEN IVERSON & BIG3 BASKETBALL On ROLLING OUT MAG!!!



October 30, 2013, legendary PHILADELPHIA 76ERS Point Guard #3 ALLEN "AI3" "The ANSWER" IVERSON retired as an active NBA PLAYER!!!

In 2016, ALLEN IVERSON was enshrined into the NAISMITH MEMORIAL BASKETBALL HALL Of FAME (HALL Of FAME) (HOF).

However; there can be second acts in life, and it seems that AI3 has found The ANSWER (pun intended).

Earlier in 2017, Rapper/Actor/Director ICE CUBE founded the BIG3 BASKETBALL LEAGUE (BIG3), which is a professional 3-On-3 Half-Court basketball league, and; features many former NBA ballers as players and coaches.

AI is a member of the team 3'S COMPANY, and at recent BIG3 games, he has proven to STILL be a crowd favorite.

ROLLING OUT Magazine asks, Can ALLEN IVERSON & BIG3 BASKETBALL SAVKE BASKETBALL???

Here are some interview interludes:

On his expectations from the BIG3 experience:

“I expected it [BIG3] to be what it had been thus far. Because of Ice Cube — he’s not going to be involved with something and not put his all into it. I knew that it would be something intriguing for the fans to see the players play in a half-court league.”

On continuing to work himself back into playing shape:

“It’s going to take me a minute to get back into it,” Iverson said with a smile on his face. “I’ve been out of the league for about six or seven years. I really think it’s going to take me a minute to get my legs back to where I want it to be. Hopefully, this knee [issue] doesn’t linger on because of my old ass age.”

Other players in the league have returned to game form. Al Harrington led Trilogy with 20 points in a victory over Rashad Lewis’ 3 Headed Monster; Chauncey Billups scored 15 points and made his debut with Killer 3s in a losing effort to Power, and Derrick Byars scored 19 points for Ball Hogs in a victory over Tri-State.
Notable coaches included Julius “Dr. J” Erving (Tri-State), Clyde Drexler (Power), George Gervin (Ghost Ballers), Charles Oakley (Killer 3s) and Gary Payton (3 Headed Monster).
Notable celebrities in attendance included Big3 founder Ice Cube, LL Cool J, Michael Rapport, and Anthony Hamilton. The tour will head to Oklahoma City on July 9.
