Allen Iverson is set up to make a comeback to the hardwood, even at 41 years of age.
The Answer will be one of eight former NBA players to play in the new BIG3 three-on-three professional basketball league that’s set to launch this summer, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.
“Iverson will be one of eight dual head coach/players in the league, which is backed by entertainment icon Ice Cube and includes Roger Mason as president and commissioner.”
“Among other players committed to the half-court league, which is set to travel throughout eight cities and venues this summer: Chauncey Billups, Kenyon Martin, Rashard Lewis, Jermaine O’Neal, Stephen Jackson, and Jason Williams.”
Iverson is scheduled to appear at a news conference in New York on Wednesday to discuss his part in the launch of the league this summer, according to sources.
The recently Hall of Fame-enshrined Iverson was the 2001 NBA MVP and an 11-time All-Star in a groundbreaking 14-year NBA career. He was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft after playing one season at Georgetown.
He played the final game of his NBA career for the Philadelphia 76ers in 2010.
