Clyde Drexler has a lot of basketball experience and expertise. As the superstar leader of the Portland Trail Blazers, Drexler has been able to show the full extent of his talents, which has led him to legendary clashes throughout his career. Now Drexler is the commissioner of BIG3, which appears to have seen tremendous growth in recent years. In fact, the championships are being held on Atlantis Paradise Island in Nassau, Bahamas, which has provided a magnificent backdrop for the league.

Now fans are aware that the league has former NBA players, as well as international athletes who have proven they can play at the highest level. The BIG3 is truly unique in that sense, as it combines players from unique backgrounds to create a fresh and exciting 3v3 competition.

As Drexler was able to tell HotNewHipHop today, gamers gravitate to BIG3 because 3-on-3 is what they grew up with. It takes them back to their childhood and it allows the most talented players to really shine.

“The BIG3 is so appealing because it’s professional 3-on-3 half-court basketball. At this level, it’s never been done before,” said Drexler. “So what Ice Cube and Jeff Kwatinetz have done is visionaries. And this game is something we’ve played our entire lives. And being able to do it on a pro is awesome. – 3 you have to be responsible on both sides of the pitch. Attack and defense. You can’t have weaknesses, you can’t hide in a corner where you’re going to be exposed. And so it forces everyone on that floor to be a two-way player. “That’s why the game is so fun.”

On Saturday, September 4 at 3:30 p.m. EST, the BIG3 Championship match will be played between the 3 Headed Monsters and the Trilogy. It will be a very good game, and you can read our preview here.
