Big 3

SOCIAL ROUNDUP: WEEK 7

August 8 17
Once again, FS1’s Monday night broadcast of this week’s BIG3 basketball action was accompanied by a mammoth Tweet-along, featuring star players and other members of the BIG3 family. Here are some of the highlights…
BIG3 co-founder Ice Cube passed along a video to get fans ready for the action…

 

---- Trilogy’s James White oughta know the Week 7 games were on fire. He poured in 12 Sunday in what was the most intense game of the day, Trilogy’s 50-45 win over Power.

 

--- Joe Connelly, the BIG3’s head of operations, shared this tremendous video of the legendary Rick Barry, coach of the Ball Hogs, teaching his squad the finer points of his trademark underhand free throw…

 

--- … And Ball Hogs captain Brian Scalabrine, in tribute to his coach, attempted the underhand shot during their game. Per Barry’s tweet, the White Mamba needs more practice at it.

 

--- This photo is actually from Week 5 in Chicago, but the BIG3 shared it last night… and it’s awesome.

 

--- This BIG3 fan must have seen Rajon Rondo in the crowd at Rupp Arena during Monday’s telecast, prompting him to suggest a new team for next season.

 

--- According to his timeline, this fan tweeted more Monday night about The Bachelorette than about BIG3, but at least he recognized which had the greater entertainment value.

 

--- Thank you, BIG3, for pairing this killer move from Bonzi Wells with a Jimi reference.

 

--- FS1 was kind enough to share these outstanding Week 7 dunks.

 

--- Baron Davis is watching BIG3. Are you?

 

--- It wouldn’t be Monday Night Basketball without hearing from No. 1 fan LL Cool J. He’ll be in the house for Week 8, of course. How about you?
