Stephen Jackson says that a BIG3 group can still compete in the NBA playoffs today

The BIG3 League is getting some major attention and it’s not just because Ice Cube is headlining it. A lot of it is coming from the headlining players like Allen Iverson, Gary Payton (coaching), Julius Irving (coaching), Chauncey Billups, Stephen Jackson, Jermaine O’Neal and more.

But on Sunday, it gained even more attention after Jackson’s comments about the league.

“From this point forward, I started asking if these guys thought they could actually help an NBA team today. “Definitely,” said Stephen Jackson. He later added, “If we took 15 guys from this league, we could compete in the playoffs today.”

“Jackson even said it in front of all the fans in the crowd during the draft. He was asked who he’d bet his money on to win the NBA Finals this year, and he fired back saying he’d rather pick 15 BIG3 guys and take his chances.”

Now Jackson’s comments may be a bit of a stretch, but mixing a team with some of their youngers players like Xavier Silas and James White, I could definitely see the BIG3 team being able to compete for a playoff berth.
