Allen Iverson is returning to professional basketball (well, sort of)

Sixers NBA

Sixers legend, NBA Hall of Famer, subpar Mannequin Challenger, and Dallas Cowboys fan Allen Iverson will be playing professional basketball again.

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…
