Jamaica-born basketball star Samardo Samuels is back in the US playing basketball. However, it’s not the NBA.
The former Cleveland Cavaliers player is now part of the Big3 league, which was co-founded by hip hop royalty Ice Cube. Samuels is now contracted to the inaugural winners of the league – Trilogy, and he is expected to make an impact in the half-court league that is gaining popularity.
Samuels recently played for French club Limoges where he led them to the playoffs, but they were eliminated.
The basketballer noted that he is ready for the challenges in the Big3 league, and he knows he can do well. As part of the Trilogy, he will play for head coach, former NBA star Kenyon Martin, who he also played against during his time in the NBA.
Meanwhile, Samuels was recently spotted in his hometown, Falmouth, Trelawny, where he informed BUZZ that he was on vacation. The former Mucshett High School stand-out said that he also got the chance to enjoy Reggae Sumfest while he was in Jamaica.
