Ice Cube’s BIG3 league continues to swell in terms of legitimate star power and talent, as NBA Hall of Famer Julius Erving has signed to be a head coach.

Erving, an NBA legend, is not only a man who brings a wealth of basketball knowledge to this fledgling league, but he also brings his own flavor of pure magic.

It’s unknown which of the eight teams Dr. J will coach. But we do know he’ll be joined by Allen Iverson, who will be coaching and playing for a team (which he named after a legendary 1980s sitcom).

The BIG3 league kicks off this summer at the Barclay’s Center on June 25th in New York City.

It’s being promoted as a first-class league with first-class — albeit older — talent, and we can’t wait to see what the fuss is really all about.
