What is the BIG3 League?

The BIG3 is a 3 on 3 Professional Basketball League founded by executive Jeff Kwatinetz and Musician Ice Cube. Stated earlier, it’s a short season, with 2 weeks of post season basketball. In addition, the league consists of NBA players who are either past NBA Champions, past All-Stars, and those who have years of experience in the NBA and international/college basketball. In addition, the rules of the BIG3 are different from the NBA and standard 3 on 3 basketball. Furthermore, the league consists of 12 teams, and the headquarters are in Los Angeles, California.

Clyde Dexter is the Commissioner, who played 15 years of professional basketball in the NBA. Also, the head coaches of the 12 teams are comprised of men and women, who are past basketball stars. The coaches include Michael Cooper, Reggie Theus, Rich Mahorn, Rick Barry, Gary Payton, Gilbert Arenas, George Gervin, Charles Oakley, Nancy Lieberman, Stephen Jackson, Julius Erving, and Lisa Leslie.

It’s important to note the BIG3 follows the Fireballl3 rules, rather than FIBA 3-3 rules. This includes four-point shots, something that the NBA does not have. In addition, the teams will play in Chicago, Illinois week 1, Dallas Texas week 2, New York, New York week 3, Memphis, Tennessee week 4, Boston, Massachusetts week 5, Charlotte, North Carolina Week 6, and Detroit Michigan, week 7. The teams included in the league are the 3 Headed Monsters, 3’s Company, Aliens, Ball Hogs, Bivouac, Enemies, Ghost Ballers, Killer 3s, Power, Tri State, Trilogy, and Triplets.

Favored Teams:

Trilogy +400

Trilogy currently has the least odds to win the 2023 BIG3 Championship. In fact, since the beginning of the league in 2017, Trilogy has won 3 Championships, including the inaugural season, and the past two seasons. Trilogy’s co-captains include Earl Clark, in addition to Amir Johnson, who played 14 seasons in the NBA. Other players include David Hawkins, Isaiah Briscoe, and James White.

All 5 of their players have a combined 24 NBA seasons under their belt, and both Earl Clark and Isaiah Briscoe are both averaging points in double-digits. Between the two of them, both players are shooting .500 and above from the three.  Although it’s early in the season, Trilogy has decent size between Johnson, Clark, and White. Briscoe played one season in the NBA, however he’s a shot creator and has nasty ball handling moves. The Trilogy won their week 1 matchup and defended their title against the Enemies 52-46. In fact, Earl Clark sealed the deal with the game winning shot, and added 25 points.

3 Headed Monsters +500

The 3 Headed Monsters, coached by Reggie Theus, are led by long time players Rashad Lewis and Reggie Evans. Rashad Lewis played 16 seasons and is an NBA Champion. Standing at 6 foot 10, Lewis was an incredible three-point shooter in the NBA and was part of the 2013 Miami Heat championship team.

Although this team has been decent since the start of the BIG3, they’ve never been able to win a championship. Reggie Evans is back from injury and averaged a triple double in their week 1 loss against Power. Between the two of them, and Kevin Murphy, they have the size to compete against other teams. The team added Jordan Adams and Robert Dozier in the draft, however, it will be interesting who can guard the 1, especially in iso situations.

Long shot: 3’s Company +900

3’s Company took a week one loss 50-47 against the Ghost Ballers. However, in this year’s draft they picked Hollis Thompson in the first round, who had an underwhelming first game. Michael Beasley was an NBA player for 11 seasons and was the former #2 overall pick. Standing at 6 foot 9, Beasley can play all positions, something that didn’t work so much in the NBA. In fact, he scored 21 points, grabbed 10 boards, and had 1 steal in week one against the Ghost Ballers. In addition, I love the addition of Mario Chalmers to Beasley, who was a 2-time NBA champion in 9 seasons. I can’t forget what Chalmers did in the 2008 NCAA championship, and with the addition of Brandon Rush, I think the 3’s have a shot of being decent this season.

Keep an eye out for: Bivouac +1100

Bivouac had an impressive week on win against the Triplets 51-47.  Gary Payton is the coach of this team and is believed to be one of the best point guards in NBA history.  This year, they selected Ryan Hollins, and Shannon Shorter in the 2 rounds of the 2023 BIG3 Draft.  Although Shorter didn't have a role in week 1, Ryan Hollins contributed with 7 points in 8 rebounds.  In addition, this team is led by former NBA Player, Gerald Green, who has 12 years of experience.  Green is a versatile player, who can respectfully shoot the 3 and is known for his dunks.  Furthermore, Garlon Green is a Co-Captain, and was a former international player.  He also scored 15 points, grabbed 4 rebounds, and can shoot from long range as well.  Corey Brewer, a former NBA Champion, is an absolute beast on the defensive end of the court.  This team may lack a true point guard; however, they are fun to watch.
