Big 3 Basketball is Worth a Watch

BIG3 Basketball has arrived and I have to admit, I’m intrigued for several reasons. Let’s gets you in the mood with the official BIG3 Basketball trailer.


Pretty good production behind that trailer and that’s my main point. This has some quality backing. Founded by producer, actor and music legend Ice Cube and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz, the league describes itself as “highly competitive, physical, fast basketball and incredible fan experiences.” In part because of that star power backing, they have landed a TV deal. The games will be featured on FS1.


You see 3 on 3 tournaments across the country and many think that just 6 players on the court is the most exciting brand of hoops. That coupled with the former NBA star power they have assembled. If he were 70, I would still pay to watch Allen Iverson play. Gary Payton is in the league as is Chauncey Billups. Coaches include iconic Hall of Fame names like Dr. J, Julius Erving, George “The Iceman” Gervin and Clyde “The Glide” Drexler.

Here are some other cool aspects of the new league that will make its debut on June 25. There will be a four point shot and the first team to 60 wins. Some may say it’s a bit on the hokey side but I have to be honest, I’m not really into the NBA playoffs right now and I think many hoops fans share my sentiments. Sure the basketball won’t be as good as the current NBA but many of these guys are part of my sports viewing history. It’s the same reason I’m drawn to the Champions Tour in golf. I like personality in sports and it seems as though it’s becoming less and less in today’s professional leagues.

Here are the logos of each team with their roster.


You’ll notice no city affiliation, as this is a traveling tour.  My three favorite team logos and names are 3’s Company, The Ball Hogs and 3 Headed Monster. I think they could have done a better job with these logos. Ball Hogs is my favorite. I like the look of the hog with the jersey that turns into a basketball. I would have used a different color scheme than green, yellow and white. I must say they are going for it playing at venues like the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and the American Airlines Center in Dallas to name a few. Here is the Dallas flyer that was just released.


It’s going to bring back memories so I’m going to give it a shot.

I hope you give some of our awesome t-shirts a shot. We have some great hoops logos to choose from.

How about the New Orleans Curse?


How awesome is it to see a Voodoo doll dunking a basketball? I always thought that a name like Curse would have fit better into the New Orleans tradition than the Pelicans. Not that I don’t love Pelicans, which are the state birds. I just like the uniqueness of the Taboo, Voodoo scene in New Orleans.

What about the Albuquerque Chupacabras?


 You may think to yourself, how is this a basketball logo? If you look real close, you’ll notice the moon is actually a basketball. Residents have claimed Chupacabra sightings in New Mexico. Residents also get rave reviews when they wear our Chupacabras t-shirt!

Don’t forget, you can sign up for these t-shirts or even our Panamanian Basketball League shirts as part of our T-shirt of the Month Club. Our goal is to give you the best deal and we’re doing it with this club. Free shipping, discount prices and unlike other t-shirt clubs, you pick out the shirts you want.
