The BIG3 has already added a bevy of former NBA players to their league for this summer, with the likes of Joe Johnson, Gilbert Arenas, Al Jefferson, Ronnie Brewer, Carlos Arroyo, Brandon Rush, and others.
Another addition will be former champion Jason Terry, who has been broadcasting for TNT, NBA TV, and ESPN this season. ‘The Jet’ ended his 19-year NBA career after last season, when he was playing for the Bucks.
Terry does have one goal this summer though: breaking the 4-point record.
Via James Herbert of CBS Sports:
‘The biggest reason, the No. 1 reason, is my love for the game and for the fans. Watching the BIG3 the last two years — the first year I was able to attend the championship game in Vegas, last year I was at one of the home games in Dallas — sitting courtside, I promised Cube, the very first year that I retire, that I will play in the BIG3. One, it’s an entertaining league. Two, a lot of the guys playing — you’re talking about Jermaine O’Neal, Nate Robinson, Baron Davis, Stephen Jackson — these are all guys that either were on my team or I played against while I was in the league, so we’re a tight brotherhood. That relationship alone, and then having fun, going out and playing the game that you love in front of the fans, touring around the United States with fans that haven’t gotten seen you play in a while, is ultra-fun.’
The BIG3 should be a lot of fun this season.
