Hall of Famer Allen Iverson was supposed to be in Dallas on Sunday with his team. However, according to the Big 3 League, the former star, who is most famous for playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, did not show up.

This is the second-time an Iverson controversy has happened in recent weeks with the up-star league run by Ice Cube. Two weeks ago, Iverson did not play at the Wells Fargo Center, a place he used to call home.

He did coach at the Philadelphia show. Iverson and the league officials were hauled with boos because he did not play, especially since so many fans returned to the arena to see him play one more time.

Iverson, according to the press release, “did not show up, as expected.” It’s not clear what the story is here.

“We had no advance warning and do not have information as to all the circumstances surrounding his absence,” the press release said. “The league is launching an investigation to gather all the facts and then will make an informed, official statement.”

DerMarr Johnson, whose Three’s Company co-captain, will serve as a player and coach.
