Looks like it started out pretty well. Attendance was a little over 15,000 people in Brooklyn. Interesting idea. Already had a few injuries. Anyone interested in checking this out?

No! I'd rather go down to the playground and do some pick-up games. Zero interest in watching them.

That may be a problem for the league. At their ages they are more injury prone.

Hate to say it but the 15 minutes I watched was kinda boring. I'll try watching again though.

I will check it out. I hope they succeed. They are on at a perfect time. Nothing but baseball and women's tennis to compete with.

15K fans showed up for the first games. I watched some, mostly so I could see White Chocolate and Chris Jackson play. I'll watch some more, should be a successfully little summer league.

I would much rather see a pro and amateur division where the amatuers can work into play the pros. With all of the hoop it up and other 3 on 3 tourneys and leagues out there, I would imagine there are teams who could beat these guys. Heck, get the And1 guys in there too.

I have watched it the last couple of weeks.

This is basketball in pure form, except for the 4 point shot. So those who want the entertainment won't watch.

I like it because I like competition. I also understand it for what it is.

I've watched it 4 or 5 times to see if it gets any better but i find it pretty boring. People got excited to see the stars like iverson but this Big3 league doesn't have the same level of play and excitement. I don't think i've seen a single dunk in a game yet. Maybe it would be better if it was full court..or maybe a mini full court
