According to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Iverson will serve as a player-coach in the BIG3 three-on-three professional basketball league that just launched. It appears that Iverson will be playing with a bunch of NBA stars from his era:
Iverson will be one of eight dual head coach/players in the league, which is backed by entertainment icon Ice Cube and includes Roger Mason as president and commissioner.
Among other players committed to the half-court league, which is set to travel throughout eight cities and venues this summer: Chauncey Billups, Kenyon Martin, Rashard Lewis, Jermaine O’Neal, Stephen Jackson and Jason Williams.
According to Woj, Iverson is scheduled to appear at a press conference in New York on Wednesday to announce his participation in the league. Now also serving as a coach, it might be interesting to hear what he has in mind as far as preparing his team to play.
Because well, you know…
