Big3: 3-on-3 Basketball League
Created in part by rapper/actor Ice Cube, the BIG3 is the American 3-on-3 professional basketball league, which combines superstar players and fan interaction before and after the games to make for an exciting live experience. The entire league is operated and managed by the players, bringing highly competitive basketball played as it’s meant to be.
The games feature half-court play and rules designed for competition and intensity. Instead of a tip off, each game starts with a half-court do-or-die shootout.
There will be four games:
- Killer 3s (captained by Chauncey Billups; coached by Charles Oakley) vs. Ball Hogs (captained by Brian Scalabrine; coached by Rick Barry)
- 3's Company (captained and coached by Allen Iverson) vs. Power (captained by Corey Maggette; coached by Clyde Drexler)
- Trilogy (captained by Kenyon Martin; coached by Rick Mahorn) vs. Ghost Ballers (captained by Mike Bibby; coached by George Gervin)
- Tri-State (captained by Jermaine O'Neal; coached by Julius "Dr. J" Erving) vs. 3 Headed Monsters (captained by Rashard Lewis; coached by Gary Payton).
When an adult buys a BIG3 ticket at the arena box office, one child 13 and under can get in for free.
