    Odom, 39, will play in the BIG3, a professional 3-on-3 half-court basketball league founded by producer, actor, and music legend Ice Cube and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz. Odom will join Gilbert Arenas, Perry Jones III, Craig Smith, Royce White and Frank Robinson on the Enemies, a team added to the league this year.
    There are 12 teams in the BIG3, with rosters full of former NBA players. The league is entering its third season.
