Tracy McGrady may be giving Ice Cube’s BIG3 league a run for their money. The retired former All-Star appeared Thursday on “NBA HooperVision,” a broadcast on NBA League Pass. While on the air, McGrady revealed that he has plans to create a new basketball league called the OBA (which stands for “Ones Basketball Association”). The league will be a professional one-on-one league for adults 18 and over. “I’m creating something, a one-on-one league that I’m creating,” McGrady said. “Nationwide. Not a tournament, a league … 18 and up … It’s called OBA. Ones Basketball Association. Coming to you.”
