I thought that was the purpose of BIG 3, to pull vets back on the court and youngsters alike. This is a great niche, Master P does something similar with his mixed gender league.

$100,000 to play half court, 8 games, I doubt so many notable names would play full court for that amount.

This is a win for the older generation and current, the way some of these older guys play is long gone in today’s nba.

Nonetheless I love the concept, basketball is ageless and some of those grey bearded vets are proving that to be true.

Amare Stoudemire out there and y'all tryna act like Big 3 stars aren't washed



Just so you can clown a website for being "analytics white nerds"... Y'all n*ggas need lives. The ringer is probably the best sports website out there and the author is correct. That doesn't mean there's anything wrong with Big 3... as long as u take it for what it is...
Yea man, the league is filled with retired players. Thatís the entire point of it.

The "bums" comment is uncalled for.

If the journalist was feeling spicy, he could have tweeted this as a reply :

Back in the day, during the late 80s early 90s, they used to have The Legends game. They had to stop it due to injuries dough, but it was fun to watch.

IIRC they had one in the 93 all star game and I still think I got it on tape lol. Got the whole weekend on tape matter fact.

These dudes havenít watched Big 3 this season. Itís 10+ guys in the league now in their late 20s/early 30s that could play in the NBA or a top league overseas if thatís what they wanted to do.

Iím trying to figure out who are these washed up/out of shape players that youíd need to call a EMT if they ran 5 on 5. Dudes like Joe Johnson, Rashard Lewis, Stephen Jackson, Carlos Boozer, Al Jefferson, Corey Magette didnít stop playing because they physically couldnít. They stopped playing because they already had got great years in the league and made a boatload of money. There wasnít anything left but to sit at the end of the bench as a player-coach like what VC is doing. Some are willing to do that, but most donít want to do all that traveling and practicing to be a deep reserve.
Age limit is 27. Perry Jones bum a*s the youngest in it

The ringer is right though... They are talking about bums relatively... In relation to current NBA players they are washed up bums... They aren't saying they are washed up bums in comparison to everyday ppl SMH

This is the same argument Skip, Jalen and Stephen A got into... When Stephen A kept calling Kwame a scrub... And Jalen argument was he can't be a scrub because he's in the NBA... He's better than most ppl at basketball... When Stephen A was talking about in relation to his peers and over NBA folks he's a scrub... Ppl always do that sh*t... You know what somebody is talking about when they call an NBA player trash... But n*ggas just want to make an argument
To be honest, Kwame was a 12 season "scrub".

I'd call him a scrub lol but he really wasn't. Just a role player, and not a bad one at that. He averaged 6.6PPG and 5.5RPG over 7 different teams, which isn't bad.

But he looks like a real scrub when you look at how many minutes he averaged for his career, 22. That's 5.5 min per quarter. So Kwame was in the game for just about half the game. Every other min, he's on the floor. So he's a scrub god when you look at how much time he was out there.

They aren’t washed up bums. Some are older yes sure but they were never bums.
Steven Jackson. Amare , arenas , etc n*ggas weren’t bums at all.
It’s the same as the league you have the main players and a supporting roles.
These dudes still can play full court if they wanted to. Most of them still do they go to gyms and play full court picks up games. All they have to do is stay in shape it’s not like they never can again. Tom Brady 42 and still the goat in nfl you telling me Stephen Jackson can’t still buss 20 in this league ?? lol.

The thing with kwame brown was his draft status. If he was drafted 2nd round he would have been considered a serviceable journeyman who contributed to a lot of teams. But because he was a former number 1 pick he carried a bust status.

Gotta admit a lot of these dudes arent even old heads like that? I'm seeing a lot of dudes this season that if they were worth a damn would be in the prime of their NBA career or at worst leaving the prime. Joe has no business playing but he got to stay in shape somehow. Cuttino and Mahmoud be out there k*lling these n*ggas.


Ringer is trash though

Whyíre we comparing a league of mostly older players to prime 20 something players. To be disrespectful?

And a lot of those big 3 guys were very good when they played in the nba. So now because they mid to late 40s putting up buckets in an upstart league, theyíre bums?

Would you say Kobe was a bum his last three seasons or was dirk, Hakeem, wade, Kareem bums theyíre last few seasons?

Dont lie, None of you here watch the BIG 3. You aren't excited and looking forward to the next game

I been watchin.. Mainly cuz I can bet on it.. But Iím a basketball junkie and itís cool to see some of these guys that have been out of the league still go at it.. As a MSU Spartan fan I enjoy seeing J-Rich, Shannon Brown, Alan Anderson out there ballin.. No one is saying these guys can compete full court in the NBA anymore.. Why canít they just have a fun competitive 3 on 3 league without ppl hatin?? Donít like it? Donít watch.. simple..

Expecting dudes to still compete at a level of when they were 28 years old is dudes first mistake. Nobody said this was supposed to be 96 bulls type sh*t. Other dude talking about "let's see them play 5 on 5" like these dudes didnt spend 15 years doing just that.

Dont make Cube break out the pen or the bat
mad it took page 2 for someone to mention this. original tweet was just some left field hater d*ckhead type sh*t and mfs on here talking about "he has a point"

Props to D West for that comment. The Big 3 is not the NBA we all know this. No reason to compare and call the players in the Big 3 washed. It is still a competitive league that gives a lifeline to many players we used to applaud when they were in the NBA. We should lift this league up not sh*t on it..but yeah it is the Ringer so do we really expect the Big 3, started by a black man, to be praised on that platform?
