Stephen Jackson might want to rethink this opinion.
The 39-year-old Jackson, a 14-year NBA veteran, is one of a host of former NBA players participating in the new BIG3 league.
While this fledgling 3-on-3 competition has some big names, they are all past their prime and have been out of the NBA for some time.
Still, that didn't stop Jackson for proclaiming that an All-Star team of BIG3 players would be able to take down an NBA team. He made that claim at a press conference for the league today.
Here's a quote from Jackson, via Bleacher Report:
"I honestly feel that if you got the top 10 guys here, we could beat an actual NBA team," Jackson said in a pregame press conference, via Fox Sports 1. "Not just the summer league, we'll beat an actual NBA team."

While we admire Jackson's bravado, there's zero chance these guys, in their current condition, could hang with an NBA team in a full-court 5-on-5 game.
