Iver­son in for Ice Cube’s NBA rewind

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Hall of Famer Allen Iver­son has been re­cruited to coach and play in a new three-a-side league due to launch this year aimed at giv­ing vet­eran NBA stars a new lease of life.

Iver­son is the big­gest name to sign up for the eight-team Big3 tour­na­ment, which will be staged in cities across the United States from June 24.

The three-on-three com­pe­ti­tion is the brain­child of hiphop icon Ice Cube.

Other for­mer NBA play­ers in­clud­ing Mike Bibby, Chauncey Billups, Rashard Lewis and Jer­maine O’Neal have also signed up to play.
