BIG3 basketball 2021: Complete schedule, rosters, TV channels for fourth season of Ice Cube’s 3-on-3 league

The events of the past year have forced every single sports league to alter their schedule in one way or another, and the BIG3 was no exception. In fact, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was forced to cancel the 2020 season. But now, Ice Cube’s league is back for a fourth season. 

Triplets, the 2019 champion, are back again with Joe Johnson leading the way. The former seven-time NBA All-Star took the BIG3 by storm a few years ago, winning MVP and leading the league in both scoring (21.9 points per game) and assists (3.9 per game). Based on how he started play this summer, he appears intent on retaining all of those honors. 

As always, there are some new faces joining the league. Most notably, former first-round NBA draft pick Nick “Swaggy P” Young is the new captain of Enemies. He’ll replace Gilbert Arenas, who has traded in his jersey for a suit and tie, and will take over as the team’s coach. 

Other former NBA players new to the league include Leandro Barbosa (Ball Hogs), Spencer Hawes (Ball Hogs), Marreese Speights (Bivouac), Royce White (Power), Joe Alexander (Power), Jarrett Jack (Trilogy) and Amir Johnson (Trilogy).

This season, the league also added an extra incentive for teams trying to make a playoff push. The entire postseason will be played in the Bahamas at an oceanside resort. 

Ahead of what should be another interesting and entertaining BIG3 season, here’s a look at the entire 2021 schedule along with every team’s complete roster:
