"Big3 3-on-3 B-Ball League coming to FOX/FS1"


  

          

This idea is DOPE!!!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Or3_c_wxojQ

A lot of retired (early) NBA Players players who can still ball. The format is half-court format saves on wear and tear.

They have players like Iverson, Billups and a few others.

This league seems like a great idea. Ice Cube is behind it Definately gonna peep. Starts on June 26.

my thoughts,

peace.

I watched the first week and was intrigued, LOVE the idea.

So far, a lot of the stars that were hyped have not been used to the full extent as believed (especially AI).

I was entertained, but I wonder if the league has been doing well through 3 weeks in the eyes of the fans?

That's K-Mart man, AND his team is the undercover one in the league that could take this away in the inaugural season, w/o one of the HoF coaches.

I find it fun, competitive and thoroughly enjoyable. It's fun as hell! And its good, physical basketball. I hope it sticks around a long time. Eff nostalgia, it's good ball.

now that I think about it, there's something about the viewing experience that is not up to par for me.

the production is lacking. maybe, i'm spoiled.

It was fine, moderately entertaining once you get past the novelty. Half court is great because it helps keep the pace up without wearing down the players too much.

I really hope this league sticks though, as it fills an interesting niche between college and pros. It gives another avenue for almost-good-enough college players and not-quite-washed-up former pros to go to instead of Asia or Europe. Give the season a couple more years to attract more players and this thing could really thrive.

The fact that 3v3 is now an Olympic sport should help matters too.
