Allen Iverson releases statement on his Dallas no-show act for BIG3

Allen Iverson has spoken … sort of.

"The Answer" has been under some heat lately with Ice Cube's BIG3 league.

First, the Sixers legend didn't play when the league came to Philadelphia, nor did he speak to the media afterwards. Then he was a no-show last Sunday for the league's games in Dallas, without any notice or explanation.

But now we have one.

Iverson posted this statement on his Instagram — and no, it's not a poem or haiku (we think).

If you were expecting a more thorough "answer" (sorry, bad pun), then you're probably still disappointed. Guess we'll just have to stay tuned and hope Iverson shows up moving forward.

Cole Hamels donates millions to charity


Cole Hamels donates millions to charity

REEDS SPRING, Mo. (AP) — Texas Rangers pitcher Cole Hamels and his wife, Heidi, are donating a mansion and 100 acres of land in southwest Missouri to charity that provides camps for children with special needs and chronic illnesses and their siblings.

The 32,000-square foot home will be donated to Camp Barnabas.

The mansion and land is near Table Rock Lake near Reeds Springs. Heidi Hamels grew up in Buffalo, Missouri.

The Springfield News-Leader report s an attorney for the couple said they thought the mansion would be their dream home. But when Hamels was traded to the Rangers, they moved to Texas and never moved into the Missouri house.

Hamels said in a news release Friday that he and his wife wanted to help the charity make children’s dreams come true.

Remeber the 2017 NBA Draft? Remember how the Philadelphia 76ers had the No. 1 overall pick in that draft?

It's easy to forget they selected one Markelle Fultz with the first pick. That's because Fultz has barely sniffed the court this season due to his shoulder issues.

But all reports point to Fultz finally feeling better, with no shoulder pain!

“He continues to focus on the PT and strength and conditioning aspect of the return. The good news is the soreness is completely gone and the muscle imbalance is gone," GM Bryan Colangelo said ten days ago.

So obviously the next big question is: when will we see Fultz on the court?!?

Well, wait no longer! Thanks to Fultz's social media account, we got a glimpse of the rookie throwing down a nice little dunk.

In more serious news, the NBA Twitter account shared an update on Fultz on Friday, showing him working hard to get ready for his return:
