On Sunday, the rapper/actor's well-honed business sense proved sharp again.
The Big3 League finally tipped off their inaugural season last night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and it featured a couple of buzzer beaters, a handful of injuries and Allen Iverson's return to the court. But when teams are actually shooting well from the outside is when the games are most fun, if only to see the pace pick up a bit after all the banging in the post. At 42 years old, the former NBA MVP said he doesn't expect to be playing heavy minutes in the 10-game season. Eastern Time. Prior to that, there will be a half-hour special featuring Allen Iverson and Ice Cube with a look at how the league was created and players were brought together for the teams. That's good news for the league as one has to wonder how teams will get by if star players are hurt in a 3-on-3 format with a total of 40 players overall. The 29-year-old Tebow led the University of Florida to two national championships in football and won the 2007 Heisman Trophy during his stellar career with the Gators. I got back to my seat in time to see Fab perform "Breathe", which 100% still bangs in 2017. The playing part is not going to be what you expect. The almost seven hours I spent at Barclays ended up being well worth it, however, even if only to see Allen Iverson hit one shot in his return to the hardwood. They want to be champions. "So when people are watching it's basically just watching a poor man's National Basketball Association". "Obviously you see the debut".
"I'm just happy that I was fortunate and honored enough to be one of the first guys to participate", Iverson said. This may be a traveling basketball nostalgia tour, but the participants, recently retired NBA players, treated it like a real competition.
Perhaps in halfcourt basketball it is.
All eight BIG3 teams were in action for Sunday's quadruple-header. Next are stops in Charlotte, Tulsa and Philadelphia. Beyond the three-point arc are three circles where players can shoot four-pointers.
The BIG3 chose to legalize hand-check defense, which hasn't been allowed in the National Basketball Association for 15 years.
U.S. downing of Assad aircraft ups tensions with Russian Federation in Syria
The logical question arises why the USA in the face of a common threat of Daesh continues to strike the Syrian forces? Now Russia has again suspended this line of communication, and again threatened force against the US.
Ice Cube's experimental 3-on-3 basketball league, BIG 3, held it's opening day on Sunday at the Barclays Center. Lewis punctuated his basket with a barrage of trash talk aimed at Ricky Davis.
Next, Power knocked off Tri-State 62-59.
That's followed by TriState vs. Power and 3's Company against the Ball Hogs. Fans started to boo loudly after a long, uninterrupted stretch of bricked shots.
Al Harrington scored 25 points as Trilogy cruised in the final game of the day.
Rapper and actor Ice Cube said on Thursday that President Trump has not done much for the black community, adding that blacks are not high on the president's list of priorities.
