It was reported last month that Allen Iverson will serve as a player-coach in Ice Cube’s new three-on-three basketball league — BIG3 — this summer:

Per Woj, The Answer, who last played in the NBA in 2010, will serve as player-coach in BIG3, which will launch this summer. Other players committed to his league include Chauncey Billups, Kenyon Martin, Rashard Lewis, Jermaine O’Neal, Stephen Jackson and Jason Williams, so there will be a lot of talent on the floor… along with some gray hair.

Well, after the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night in New Orleans, TMZ found the Hall of Famer and four-time NBA scoring champ, and asked him if he wants to coach in the NBA. Iverson’s answer is terrific (and NSFW):

TMZ: Is that your goal; you want to coach in the NBA?

Iverson: Hell no!

TMZ: Why not?

Iverson: Because I ain’t coaching no motherfuckers that make more money than me.

Fair enough!
