Former 2008 Celtics Champs, Kendrick Perkins & Eddie House, to join BIG3 League
Former Wizards star, Gilbert Arenas, and former Laker, Lamar Odom, are also scheduled to join the BIG3. I was fortunate last summer to be chosen as part of the Press Corps to cover the BIG3 games at TD Garden in Boston. I came away impressed with the competitiveness of the games and the total availability of the players to attendees.

Another former Celtics Champion from 2008, Brian Scalabrine, was a part of last summer's BIG3 games as a member of the Ball Hogs, and I was able to have a 1-on-1 interview with the White Mamba prior to his Boston appearance.
The BIG3 is stacked with NBA All Stars! Julius ‘Dr. J’ Erving was the first slam dunk champ and Nate Robinson has the record for most slam dunk titles. Now, Nate plays for Coach Dr. J on Tri-State! ⭐️⭐️⭐️#BIG3AllStars #NBAAllStar pic.twitter.com/oKF2CmMS3T— BIG3 (@thebig3) February 16, 2019
The BIG3 partners with Fox and FS1 for viewers that can't make the games. Looks like an exciting summer for the BIG3 and its fans.
