ICE CUBE's upcoming "BIG3" 3-on-3 basketball league just landed a major player, as Allen Iverson has reportedly committed to joining it for its inaugural season.
The rapper-turned-actor-turned mogul officially announced plans for the new 3-on-3 league in New York City on Wednesday, joined by Iverson and former National Basketball Association players Kenyon Martin and Rashard Lewis.
