Some of the biggest stars in the NBA went to La Salle University on Sunday to pay tribute to Rasual Butler … and honored their friend by circling together for an emotional chant. Chris Paul, Lamar Odom, Caron Butler, Roger Mason Jr., Jim Jackson and others were in Philadelphia for the “service of love” for Butler … who was killed in a car crash in L.A. on January 31. CP3 was one of the speakers — he and Butler played together back with the Hornets.

With the BIG3 already boasting legends of the game such as Allen Iverson, Rick Barry, Spurs great George Gervin, and others, the league’s Commissioner, Roger Mason, is already making a home for another hardwood legend – Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki. Mason is interested in adding Dirk once he hangs up his NBA sneakers. He also points to his time battling Nowitzki on the floor as a member of the Spurs as a starting point at recruiting the Mavs big man.

“We absolutely would be interested in Dirk Nowitzki,” said Mason. “He obviously has been one of the greatest of all time in five on five, but even where he is today he’d be a great three on three player so if he decides to hang them up this year in the NBA we certainly have a home for him here. I enjoyed my time playing against Dirk when I was with the Spurs playing Dallas a couple years ago in the playoffs so we do have a relationship and I’m sure he’s seen our games,” Mason said.
Speaking with Mason today, he expanded on his continuing efforts to lure Duncan to the league and is hoping he’ll have a change of heart. “I did reach out to him early on and I didn’t hear back,” said Mason. “But I think ultimately, it’s going to be a sit down. I am sure Tim has seen the games now and if he hasn’t, I am still planning on coming down to San Antonio to grab some food with him and try to get him in our league.”

Coach Gary Payton was absent for the media reception and both practices. Yesterday, the only point guard to win Defensive Player of the Year was reportedly on his way to Chelsea Piers. Not even the BIG3 commissioner and president knew his whereabouts. “He’s a big boy,” said Roger Mason Jr., while cruising around Chelsea Piers’ courts in a custom black suit, clearly bankrupt of answers. “He’ll find his way.” Today, Payton is unresponsive. This, a day before the BIG3’s debut and 3HM’s reintroduction. Turns out GP never made it to NYC. He was back home on the Left Coast. “I had stuff to do,” Payton would say later. “I had businesses to handle. Shit. This ain’t my motherfuckin’ job.” He laughs. “This ain’t paying my bills.”
