WEEK 8: Social Roundup
By BIG3 August 15, 2017
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.
