One of the founders of BIG3 basketball league, Ice Cube, discusses why free agent forward Carmelo Anthony should consider joining the BIG3:

“I think Carmelo would be great in the BIG3 but I think some guys have a stigma about the BIG3. When you go to the BIG3 your career is over but that’s not true. When the NBA lets you go, your career is over but you can continue to be a pro here.

The BIG3 is where you continue your basketball career and until guys understand that, there’s going to be that stigma. Look at Joe Johnson, he showed what he could do in the BIG3 and he’s going to be back in the NBA. Carmelo could do the same if he wants,” Cube said.

This past season, Anthony played in 10 games and mostly came off the bench to score 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game.
