Big 3 Basketball Rolls Through Dallas

American Airlines Center in downtown Dallas was the site of basketball, fans, rappers and more last Saturday as the Big 3 rolled into town for Week 4 of 3×3 basketball action. Players and teams like Joe Johnson, Royce White, Swaggy P. and Mario Chalmers, Ghost Ballers, Trilogy, 3 Headed Monster, along with head coaches like Mike Bibby, Lisa Leslie and Nancy Lieberman and more excited fans with thrilling plays, wild courtside gesturing and fun moves.

Memphis rapper NLE Choppa had the AAC rocking during his half-time performance, as did Big 3 founder and legend Ice Cube who performed a few of his hits as well. VIPs catching the action included new Dallas Mavericks Head Coach Jason Kidd, Mavs GM Nico Harrison and former NBA player John Salley. The Big 3 also paid tribute to Andre Emmett, a former player and native Dallasite who was killed two years ago in an apparent robbery.
