The BIG3 league is a new professional basketball league developed by Allen Iverson, the thrilling point guard from the early 2000s and recent inductee into the NBA Hall of Fame. Rather than competing with the NBA directly, the BIG3 league will feature 3-on-3 contests which allow it to better highlight sharpshooting and flashy skills.

BIG3 games will be played on a small court, approximately half the size of an NBA court. This means less running and more skill, which in turn allows for former stars to take the court once again.

The league is divided into nine teams, each of which has a former NBA star as its captain (who will be responsible for drafting his players.) These captains include legends like Iverson, Chauncey Billups, Jason 'White Chocolate' Williams, Jermaine O'Neal, and others.
