(SP) – Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook is done with his NBA season, but he revealed plans today to try to win another basketball league all by himself: the new 3-on-3 league started by Ice Cube called BIG3.
“I couldn’t pull off going one-on-five versus NBA players, but I’m sure I can dominated one-on-three against a bunch of has-beens and never weres,” said the Thunder guard. “This is going to be easy.”
The inaugural BIG3 season, set to run from late June to late August, will feature former NBA players including Allen Iverson, Chauncey Billups, Jason Williams and many more.
“I’m going to make them all cry,” said Westbrook. “I’d get a triple-triple against these old men if they gave out assists for passing the ball to yourself. I won’t even have to try.”
BIG3 rosters feature five players and one coach, whereas Team Westbrook will just feature one player.
“I was going to call my team the Oklahoma City Thunder because that’s basically what I am,” said Westbrook. “But there was some licensing problems or something. Fine by me. It will be cool to have only my name on the league championship trophy.”
