Former NBA stars such as Lamar Odom, Bonzi Wells, Baron Davis and Jermaine O’Neal found out the hard way when the league announced on Wednesday that there services will no longer be needed as they were all deactivated for the rest of the 2019 season.
BIG3 owner Ice Cube was recently caught up with by TMZ Sports and bluntly explained why Odom and the other players will no longer play in the league.
“As a league, we want players that are actually playing, so if you aren’t playing, or can’t play, or you have any health issues …” Ice Cube said. When asked if he was concerned about Odom, he said, ‘Always. I love the guy.”
Odom was the only one who had actually played in a game this season of all the others who were deactivated. The co-captain of the expansion squad Enemies, Odom had registered just two points, four rebounds and an assist.
