Gilbert Arenas is making his return to basketball.
The former Wizards point guard has signed to play in the BIG3, a three-on-three basketball league created by rapper/actor Ice Cube and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz. Arenas made the announcement on his No Chill podcast Thursday where Ice Cube was a guest.
Founded in 2017, the BIG3 features former NBA All-Stars, Hall of Famers, and World Champions like Drew Gooden and Metta World Peace. Arenas, who hasn't played in the NBA since the 2012 season with the Memphis Grizzlies, is excited to get back to the grind.
"Like I'm really gonna be training. That's the sad part. I'm training like I'm about to sign a $100 million contract."
The three-time NBA All-Star spent eight seasons with the Wizards, but we all know how that abruptly ended.
While it's still unsure which of the 12 teams Arenas will join, he plans on bringing it.
"So get y'alls [expletive] together for real. I ain't trying to pass the ball."
