Big3 begins: Close games open Ice Cube's new 3-on-3 league

Big3 begins: Close games open Ice Cube's new 3-on-3 league

I've been retired for seven years. Each of the 40 players is an National Basketball Association veteran, with some former All-Stars and one Hall of Famer: Allen Iverson. "So that being said, I think Trump took over a White House and a country that was in way better shape", he said.

"I think it's going to be a treat for the fans and it's not an All-Star Game", the actor and entertainer said.

Even under stringent time constraints, BIG3 managed to secure FOX Sports as its broadcast partner. Both Corey Maggette and Jason Williams, who each played at least 12 National Basketball Association seasons, left their respective games after suffering knee injuries, while everyone else fought through rust and each other.

So when the Big3 debuts Sunday in NY, it will not be a bunch of former players going through the motions. Kwame Brown also chipped in with 17 points and 13 boards.

"It's a different evolution of a game that plays into the strengths of our players", Kwatinetz continues. If you go see the BIG3, you'll see Ricky Davis launching jumpers with abandon, Jermaine O'Neal posting up and Jerome Williams barking at the crowd.

Andre Owens recorded a double-double on 20 points and 15 rebounds in the win.

Game 2 was the best game of the day, because both teams traded shots down the stretch in a tight contest.

The rapper-actor's new 3-on-3 basketball league of former NBA players got off to a strong start Sunday, with the first two games decided on winning shots before 15,177 at Barclays Center in NY. If you're fouled while shooting a 4, you get one free-throw attempt worth four points. And there were a few moments of genuine excitement, including game-winning baskets to dramatically close out the first two games - an and-one layup by Rashard Lewis, and Stevenson's three-pointer - that were met with standing ovations, and big celebrations by the victors. Stevenson is an early league MVP favorite, even if they don't give out an MVP award. I've been playing basketball since I was 10 ... "It didn't need Allen Iverson the player, per se".

Mostly Iverson and everyone else involved seemed pleased to be a part of something that got off to a bigger start than nearly anyone anticipated.

"I saw guys get wrestled out there, to the floor, no call", 3's Company's DerMarr Johnson said.

The game everyone was most excited for ended up being the most boring.

Iverson is the captain and player-coach for 3's Company.

Reggie Evans (30) of Killer 3s shoots against Al Harrington of Trilogy. Each roster of five players includes a captain and co-captain. Castile, a gun owner, was shot at point blank range, with his girlfriend and her four year-old child in the auto.

Robinson, 41, is listed as a reserve for the Killer 3's, which features Detroit Pistons great Chauncey Billups and former National Basketball Association players Stephen Jackson, Reggie Evans, Larry Hughes, and Brian Cook plus player coach Charles Oakley. Not sure how Billups can run an organization when he's been such a distraction to his current team. "It's as far as it looks when you get out there".

Assorted celebrities were in the house, including LL Cool J and Whoopi Goldberg. Here are the latest BIG3 game results and highlights for the first week on the schedule. "I didn't know what to expect coming into the gym".

BIG3's inaugural event - a four-game afternoon of 3-on-3 basketball brought to you by Ice Cube and a bunch of retired NBA players - was nothing short of a success.

That is not far behind the Nets' average of 15,429 last season, and the vibe was far livelier than that at your average Nets game, sustained for most of a show that lasted almost six hours and featured four games. We started in January and we're about to play Sunday.
