Only a couple weeks after joining the BIG3, the League released a press statement announcing they are deactivating a handful of star players such as Jermaine O'Neal, Baron Davis and a few more.

The Big3 did not specify a reason for the deactivations, saying only that the moves were tied to the league's desire to "maximize competition, protect the health of the players, and to raise the level of the professionalism of the Big3". The league felt Odom and the others were not up to it from a competitive standpoint. Cube replied, "Always, I love the guy".

Other notable names who were sidelined in the same series of transactions included Baron Davis, 40, Jermaine O'Neal, 40, and Bonzi Wells, 42. But after struggling in his first game, Odom said in a televised interview that "once I got my rhythm back, it should be no problem".

Odom made his Big3 debut last month as a member of the Enemies team within Ice Cube's organization, which he co-founded with entertainment exec Jeff Kwatinetz. He registered two points and four rebounds during his three-week stint in the BIG3, a league showcasing former National Basketball Association players. In fact, Ice Cube had actually predicted that Odom would win the BIG3 Comeback Player of the Year award. Davis clarified over Twitter that it wasn't due to injury that he wasn't playing - it just wasn't in his best interests to play in the BIG3 league.

The two-tim National Basketball Association champion was not the only player let go by the BIG3 on Wednesday.

The BIG3 League is not playing around.
