Ice Cube, founder of the BIG3 basketball league, sees Mavs star Dirk Nowitzki as a future legend in his organization.
“We hope one day to have Dirk (Nowitzki) in our league if he still wants to hoop out when he finishes (with) the Mavericks,” Ice Cube told SportsDay Dallas.
Nowitzki just signed a two-year deal with Dallas, so Ice Cube is doing a little forward thinking.
BIG3 is a 10-week league in which teams play once a week. Games feature a 14-second shot clock and a unique bonus from really long range.
“I think from the 4-point shot he would be deadly,” Ice Cube added. “No one can stop him when he wants to just shoot it. He can come out and be a specialist. He doesn’t have to get in the paint. He can come out and just gun it from the 4. I think he’d be great.”
