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.”
