The BIG3 championship game was going to be a win-win, coronation event-party regardless which team, Killer 3’s or Triplets, ultimately lifted the Julius Erving Trophy.

Every storyline preceding the BIG3 Championship Game was a Feel Good Story.

From former NBA star Iso Joe Johnson resurgence…

“This is exactly what we envisioned when we started the league. We always felt like we’re a complimentary league to the NBA.” said Ice Cube on a CBS Sports HQ Interview, “We think it’s a great opportunity for him. We know he expects to be back in the NBA, but until then, why not come play in the Big 3.”

To the Big3 league being the only professional basketball league to have in back-to-back years female head coaches lead their teams to winning Championships, the BIG3 has literally Re-Written basketball history.

The BIG3 continues to be a pioneer in sports and equality! For the first time in sports history, women Head Coaches have won Coach of the Year and Championship Titles in back-to-back seasons in a professional men’s league! Nancy Lieberman in 2018 and Lisa Leslie in 2019.
