Allen Iverson Comes Out of Basketball Retirement; Will Compete in Three-On-Three Tournament

 

Ladies and gentleman, 2001 NBA MVP and one of the greatest pound-for-pound players of all-time, Allen Iverson, will be back on the basketball court this summer taking on a few familiar faces as well as breaking ankles.

According to The Vertical, Iverson has committed to the new “BIG 3” professional three-on-three basketball tournament that will launch in the summer of 2017 as a player/coach.

Rap legend Ice Cube and former NBA guard Roger Mason Jr. have partnered with a group of investors to launch a new three-on-three, half-court summer league for retired NBA players. Plans include eight teams of five players – including an ex-player as coach, as well as a team captain – that’ll tour together from city-to-city starting in late June.

Former NBA players who have committed so far:

Allen Iverson, Kenyon Martin, Stephen Jackson, Jermaine O’Neal, Rashard Lewis, Jason Williams, and Gary Payton.

Get ready fans, your favorite players from the 1990’s and 2000’s will be back on the court playing streetball!
