Ice Cube’s Big3 Basketball League Update-Mogul Talk

Ice Cube’s BIG3 basketball league is taking form, and I’ve got to admit, I’m irrationally excited.

Six of the eight-team 3-on-3 league’s coaching spots are filled, 12 of the 16 co-captaincies are completed — with 27 All-Star appearances between them and 10 more ex-NBA players have committed to an April combine before the draft to fill out the 40 player openings (five to a team).

Basketball Hall of Famers Rick Barry, Clyde Drexler, George “The Iceman” Gervin, Allen Iverson and Gary Payton join 1989 NBA champion Rick Mahorn as coaches, leaving two open spots remaining.

Iverson will serve as a player-coach and captain one of the eight teams. Each five-man roster will feature a pair of co-captains who will fill the three remaining roster spots in the April draft. Iverson is joined as one of the league’s co-captains by fellow All-Stars Chauncey Billups, Jermaine O’Neal, Kenyon Martin and Rashard Lewis, as well as ex-NBA standouts Mike Bibby, Ricky Davis, Al Harrington, Stephen Jackson, Corey Maggette, Bonzi Wells and Jason Williams. Four co-captain vacancies remain.

More announcements of player and coach commitments are scheduled for Mondays moving forward. The league is pursuing splashy names, a la Iverson, to fill those spots, per HoopsHype’s Alex Kennedy:

“There’s some really big names that they’re working on that they don’t want to say or talk about because they’re still working on it,” Lewis told HoopsHype. “Allen Iverson is a huge name, a Hall of Famer, and they’re pursuing others [on that level]. That’s one reason why we had the press conference, to kind of get some of these guys’ attention.”

“I think there are some guys that were kind of waiting to see if it would materialize, to see how legitimate it would be,” Billups added. “There are some [big-name] players that Cube’s guys are liking. I just think it’s a terrific idea.”

In late January, an irrational Parker told TMZ Sports he’d like to team up with former Los Angeles Lakers teammates Kobe Bryant and Lamar Odom in Cube’s league, to which Odom — still recovering from an alleged 2015 drug overdose that nearly claimed his life — responded, “I’m with it.

This is real big ya, I would advise for you to keep up to date with Ice Cube’s Big3 Basketball League…
