The BIG3 - a 3-on-3 tour filled with washed-up pros and run by a man who calls himself Ice Cube - is no joke. Not even Allen Iverson is too mighty for the league's harsh disciplinary forces.
A.I. received a one-game suspension Wednesday for his recent no-show at BIG3's stop in Dallas, according to a USA Today report. That means he'll miss an Aug. 6 date in Lexington, Kentucky.

Iverson's heartfelt apology Tuesday must not have been enough to clear his name. The Dallas incident came after his sudden decision to sit out BIG3's night in Philly last month, in which doctors advised him not to play.
Now the decision has been removed from Iverson's control. At least he'll be plenty rested.
