Armed with Julius Erving and Cuttino Mobley, who are both family to Philly fans, the BIG3 returned to Philadelphia on Sunday.

After a year away, Ice Cube’s BIG3 basketball league made a statement with it’s return,

“We wanted to come back to Philly because…we love the fans”, Ice Cube said, “The fans actually were extremely supportive.”

Philadelphia is my town Ice, so I can speak from a position of certainty.

We know Allen Iverson was wrong and is not involved with the BIG3 anymore.

But Philly is and we love having you guys in town once again, Ice.
