Once again it’s on! That’s right, the wildly popular BIG3 league is coming back like Haley’s Comet, this time with an even more star-studded roster. Just like their inaugural 2017 season, the Big 3’s rosters of retired NBA players deliver an entertaining, competitive and gritty brand of basketball that is worth the price of admission.
Newly added players like Nate Robinson, Baron Davis, Metta World Peace, Amar’e Stoudemire and Big Baby Davis are joining a league that was dominated by the Kenyon Martin-led Trilogy, featuring Al Harrington, Rashad McCants, James White and Dion Glover, and coached by Rick Mahorn.
Here’s how the picks played out for BIG3 Season 2.
They finished the season 10-0 but will certainly be hardpressed to repeat that feat with the addition of even more talent. Ice Cube vision cannot be overstated on this endeavor.
During the offseason, we heard from BIG3 fans all over the country who want to see their favorite ballers come to their cities. People are really pumped up to see some of their beloved NBA greats play the game of basketball at the professional level again, said BIG3 co-Founder and co-CEO Ice Cube.
Check out all the action from the first BIG3 Championship between the Trilogy and the 3-Headed Monsters.
