Big 3

Once again, FS1’s Monday night broadcast of this week’s BIG3 basketball action was accompanied by a mammoth Tweet-along, featuring star players and other members of the BIG3 family. Here are some of the highlights… As usual, BIG3 co-founder Ice Cube was courtside for Sunday’s action. The crowd of more than 15,000 at the American Airlines Center was the league’s biggest crowd since opening day at Barclay’s Center.

As the BIG3’s inaugural season rolls along, each new stop brings special memories to different players for different reasons. When Week 6 tips off Sunday at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, it will be a particularly meaningful moment for one BIG3 player in particular.

When Ice Cube first called me about joining the BIG3, I recognized that this would be a great way for recently retired NBA players like myself to remain in the spotlight. It is great to be playing again, with and against some good friends. And this stage the BIG3 has provided for us, allows us to do more than just get back in the game.
