The teams will consists of five players and among those players, teams will have a coach, a captain, and a co-captain. All whom were named before the draft took place. League rules will be similar with the NBA along with some notable differences. The first, being it’s three on three basketball. Other rules include, a four point shot and technical fouls reward more free throws instead of ejections. That will certainly sit well with Charles Oakley. Games will only have two halves and the first team to 60 wins. When a team reaches thirty points, that’s considered halftime. Every game will be played at the same venue on the same day. Big 3 Basketball should provide some much needed entertainment this summer, and yes, Ice Cube will be playing.
