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. With a star-studded group of celebrities and athletes in attendance, the atmosphere was electric. Here are some of the Tweet-along highlights… As always, it began with a message and accompanying video from BIG3 co-founder Ice Cube…
--- One of the big stories of the night was Charles Oakley’s first action of the season. And as BIG3 super-fan LL Cool J noted, it didn’t take long for the Killer 3s’ player/coach to be disruptive.
--- Speaking of Oakley, this photo was a fun diversion. What you might not know is that the person who tweeted this, Todd Radom, is responsible for designing all of the BIG3 team logos.
--- BIG3 co-founder Jeff Kwatinetz commented on the Staples Center crowd and reflected on the league’s first season…
--- Ball Hogs coach and Hall of Fame player Rick Barry was pumped to promote his team’s game Monday night (and for good reason).
--- BIG3 CEO Amy Trask offered a shout-out to some of the big names that were in the house Sunday night.
--- After a big Week 8 victory for Tri-State’s Lee Nailon, he got to spend some quality time with the BIG3’s week 8 entertainment. That’s right, Snoop Dogg performed in between games Sunday night.
--- Oscar De La Hoya and Dwyane Wade in the house!
--- The biggest victory of the night belonged to Ice Cube, who defeated LaVar Ball in their long-awaited 4-point challenge.
