The Infinite Arena was rocking on August 10th when Ice Cube’s Big 3 came to the Atlanta area. The energy was at a high level throughout the night as over 11,000 attendees filled the arena to capacity.

The night wasn’t without star power as many of Atlanta’s entertainment royalty such as
2 Chainz, Wale, Jermaine Dupri, The Brat, DC Young Fly, and Katt Williams came out to support Ice Cube’s 3 on 3 basketball venture in it’s second season and the first time in Atlanta.

The games wasn’t bad themselves with six teams made up of former NBA stars balling just as hard as if they were still playing in the league. Each team plays a 3 on 3 half court game until the first team who score 50 points, and is considered the winner.

The top team Power, led by Corey Maggette, locked in the top playoff seed by defeating The Ball Hogs 50-40. Other notable teams in the Big 3 are Killer 3’s led by Stephen Jackson and Tri-State led by NBA Slam Dunk Champion Nate Robinson.

Next up for the Big 3 is the playoffs in Dallas on August 17th and the Championships in Brooklyn on August 24th. All games are televised live on FOX at 8PM.

Ice Cube really knocked it out of the park, or in this case the arena, with this concept. A successful second season with packed arenas and plenty of participation from former NBA stars as players and Hall of Famers, like Dr J, as coaches, look for the Big 3 to continue for many years to come
