Ice Cube‘s league has become a way to continue the legacy of NBA legends.
Cube serves as co-founder of the BIG3 Basketball League, which consists of players taking part in 3-on-3 game using only the half-court.
In a recent interview with CBS News, he expressed his sentiments toward the league and giving retired players a chance.
“That’s one of the best parts. All of the ‘thanks yous’ I get from guys who have said ‘Man, I was lost. I was looking for something to do.’ Just imagine. You’re 34, 33 [and] somebody tells you ‘It’s over. You can’t do what you do anymore.’ Basically, beat it. So, if you kept your game up, we have a place for you. And that’s a great feeling.”
Playoffs for the BIG3 are scheduled to be played on August 17, with the championship game for August 24.
