In an interview with TMZ Sports, however, Iverson acknowledged Bryant isn't likely to take part in the event:
Iverson is among a handful of former NBA stars signed up for the three-on-three competition, joining Jermaine O'Neal, Chauncey Billups and Stephen Jackson. While it likely won't happen, the idea of Iverson and Bryant sharing one basketball is entertaining.
During their respective primes, the two were high-volume scorers who rarely earned plaudits for their teamwork. According to Basketball-Reference.com, Bryant and Iverson sit fourth (31.85) and fifth (31.83) all time in usage rate. One can only imagine the struggle between the two to determine who would take the final shot to win a game.
Unless Bryant joins the BIG3 league, however, basketball fans can only rely on NBA 2K to witness he and Iverson on the same side.
