Ice Cube Ready to Launch BIG3 on June 25 at Barclay Centre
Ice Cube dropped a bombshell of an announcement today in reference to his BIG3 basketball league.
The league, which will feature a three-on-three round-robin tournament composed of former NBA players now has a launch date as well as a location set for it’s long-awaited inaugural season’s debut – June 25 at the Barclay Centre, home of the Brooklyn Nets.
“Brooklyn has been on our radar since we started the BIG3,” Ice Cube said in a statement on Big3.com. “From the pickup courts to the pros, New York’s hoops history is unrivaled. Legends are born here, and kicking this thing off at the iconic Barclays Center could not be more fitting.”
BIG3 will feature some of the biggest names of the NBA’s past including Allen Iverson, Chauncey Billups, Jermaine O’neal, Corey Maggette, Jason Williams, Kenyon Martin, Raschard Lewis and much more!
Teams will also be able to draft three additional players from a pool of names that includes ‘The White Mamba’ Brian Scalabrine, Latrell Sprewell, and Larry Hughes. A player combine and draft will be held in April.
