Looks like the The Answer is returning to the court. NBA Hall of Famer Allen Iverson — the man famous for his disdain of practice — is about to become a coach. Not for an NBA team, however, but reportedly for Ice Cube’s new 3-on-3 basketball league. Iverson will be joining a list of ex-NBA stars which include Kenyon Martin, Jermaine O’Neal and Jason Williams.
It remains to be seen what type of coach Iverson will actually be, but since this is more of an entertainment-based league, he will likely be there more to hype guys up and act as a draw for BIG3. Iverson may even play more than he coaches. At least two things will hold true about Iverson coaching: he probably won’t hold any practices and he won’t be wearing a suit.
