ANTICIPATED: Ice Cube with Allen Iverson and more at the Big3 League press conference
ICE CUBE's highly anticipated Big3 League is on its way, and the official rules, participants, and schedule has been released this week.
According to league’s website, each team will include five players (three starters, two subs) who will take part in a 10-week season. Four games will be played each week in a new city, culminating with the championship on August 12.
“Regular season games will follow each Saturday for 10 weeks. Games are played on centered hardwood courts in the best arenas and venues in the country. Individual player introductions add a new level of personality to this team sport. Instead of a tip off, each game starts with a half-court do-or-die shootout. 4 games per day with fan events, halftime shows, exhibits, and after-parties.”
“In April 2017, BIG3 will hold a combine for all players in the draft pool. Player captains and co-captains along with the coaches and league executives will watch draft players compete in scrimmages, run drills, and complete strength and conditioning workouts. Following the combine, the BIG3 will hold a draft with each of the eight teams’ captains filling out their five player rosters.”
