If you're not familiar with Big3, it's a 3-on-3 player, half-court, professional basketball league, which was founded by mogul/entertainer Ice Cube. This upcoming 2020 season will be the league's fourth overall. Big3 teams consist mostly of former NBA players and international stars. There are 12 teams in the league, and the teams are nomads, they call no particular city home. All of the Big3 games are played in different arenas around the country.
