Week two of the Big3 continues Sunday when Ice Cube brings his newly founded professional three-on-three basketball league to the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C.
The Big3, which features former NBA stars like Allen Iverson, Charles Oakley, Chauncey Billups and Gary Payton, is in its inaugural season. After Cheap Pirates Jerseys seeing the majority of players hoop for the first time in years, it’s time to rank the top 10 players participating in the three-on-three league.
Criteria focuses primarily on career accolades (both team and individual), stat totals, NBA longevity and current age. With that in mind, here are a few guys who just missed the cut: Ricky Davis, Larry Hughes, Jason Williams and Deshawn Stevenson.
According to Ed Werder on the latest episode of the Doomsday Podcast, Favre could have donned #4 in Dallas long before the days of Dak. The Cheap Qld Reds Jerseys Favre-to-Dallas bit starts right before the 30:00 mark:
Werder: I’ve also played golf with Tony before he was, before he was Tony. Before he was Tony, I played golf with Tony Romo. He talked about during the round about how the Cowboys had had an interest in trading for Favre late in his career when he was available, Parcells was the coach.
I said, “Oh yea, I kind of heard that.” And he said, “Well you know, the deal went dead when the Packers asked for me to be in the trade.”
And now I’m like, “Oh really the Cowboys didn’t trade for Favre because they didn’t want to give you up?” And maybe it was true as it turns out, right? He was good enough as it turns out! He had a hell of a good career!
Bill Parcells was the Dallas Cowboys Head Coach from 2003-2006, which happen to be Tony Romo’s first four (how coincidental is that?) seasons in the blue and silver. In that stretch of time the Packers went 10-6, 10-6, 4-12 (the season they drafted Aaron Rodgers), and 8-8.
