Allen Iver­son did not show up for the Big3’s games in Dal­las, and the league says it is in­ves­ti­gat­ing his ab­sence. The for­mer NBA MVP is the big­gest star in Ice Cube’s 3-on-3 league of for­mer NBA play­ers. Iver­son signed on as a player and coach of Three’s Com­pany for the league’s in­au­gu­ral sea­son. He hasn’t been play­ing very much — he didn’t play at all in his much-hyped re­turn to Philadel­phia — and the league says in a state­ment to the press that it had no ad­vance no­tice that Iver­son wouldn’t at­tend the game Sun­day. The league says it will make a state­ment once it has gath­ered all the facts sur­round­ing Iver­son’s ab­sence. DerMarr John­son, the team’s co-cap­tain, took over the coach­ing du­ties Sun­day. Iver­son has bat­tled al­co­hol and gam­bling prob­lems in the past, but there has been no in­di­ca­tion of a re­lapse.
