I’ve always been a huge fan of Allen Iverson. So with that being said, I would be excited to see him play again in any capacity. And it looks like i’m finally getting my wish! (Source : Black America Web, Brian Mahoney)
The Iverson of old might be the only thing Ice Cube’s new 3-on-3 basketball venture can’t deliver.
The rapper-actor’s league of former NBA players got off to a strong start Sunday, with the first two games both decided on winning shots in front of 15,177 fans.
Iverson’s team won the third game, though as player-coach he only put himself in for 9 minutes. At 42 years old, the former NBA MVP said he doesn’t expect to be playing heavy minutes in the 10-game season.
“But I think the best part about this game here tonight and all the other games, it was exciting all throughout,” Iverson said. “It didn’t need Allen Iverson the player, per se.”
