The Big 3 has enjoyed a surge of excitement every weekend since they began in June. The Big 3’s has takn their show to Brooklyn, New York’s Barclays Center, Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center, Chicago’s UIC Pavilion and will makes stops at LA’s Staples Center, Seattle’s Key Arena and Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena.
One of the biggest draws to the Big 3 is nostalgia. Players like Kenyon Martin, Stephen Jackson, Jason Williams, Rashad McCants and Allen Iverson; guys who ruled the NBA world with their personality and their skills are giving 3-on-3 basketball a good name.
Allen Iverson, probably the most recognizable face in the league has become a fixture at games, serving the role as both coach and player on the 3s Company team.
Iverson will return to the Big 3 fold at Staples Center on Sunday after serving a one-game suspension because he missed the Big 3’s games in Dallas a couple of weeks back.
Iverson issued an apology:
“First and foremost, I apologize to Ice Cube and my Big3 family, my fans and everyone disappointed by my absence in Dallas this past weekend,” Iverson said. “I have spoke with Ice Cube directly regarding the details of my absence. I will do my best to make up for this moving forward on the Big3 tour.”
Speaking of nostalgia, the Big 3’s jersey are all interesting. Honestly they remind me of jerseys from the 1996 film Space Jam, starring Michael Jordan. They’re colorful, a bit cartoonish, but solid. Those uniforms are making a retro comeback too! They’re a customizable option on NBA 2K 17.
Iverson’s not buying the Space Jam comparison. “Nah,” Iverson told Scoop B Radio with a grin. “I like ’em. Cube let me see them before he let everybody else see em. I gave him the thumbs up.”
Iverson, a culture expert, gave his take on all eight teams. “I like all the uniforms,” he said.
“All of ’em!”

The Big 3’s website recently began selling replica’s of the uniforms for around $100 a pop.
“I like them, 3s Company guard Andre Owens told Scoop B Radio.
“All eight teams have their own unique style. It’s a pretty good look.”
