Ice Cube Is Launching A 3-on-3 Basketball League For Ex-NBA Players

If you want to see Stephen Jackson, Jermaine O’Neal, Rashard Lewis and Jason Williams play again, you’re in luck.

The former NBA stars are among the retired players signed up for a new three-on-three league Ice Cube is launching for this summer.

The BIG3 league will consist of eight teams of five ex-NBA players, and will barnstorm the country for ten weeks, starting on June 24th.

“I thought of this concept as a fan who got sick of seeing his heroes retire and not play anymore,” Ice Cube tells The Vertical. “A lot of these guys can still play once they retire – just not the back-to-backs or four games in five nights.”

“I started to look at three-on-three basketball and wondered, ‘Why isn’t this played on a pro level?’ It’s the most normal form of basketball,” he continued. “And from there it was like, ‘Yo, why don’t we make this happen?’”

Is this something you’d be interested in?
