BIG3 2019 expansion teams

Recommended Posts

So Ice Cube's traveling 3 on 3 basketball league is still up and running. Not only that, but it's expanding from 8 teams to 12. They've announced a new team each Friday for the last 3 weeks. So far they've announced the Triplets, Aliens and Bivouac with a final team to likely be announced next Friday.

I've always wanted to see a sports team use Aliens for it's theme/branding, but not necessarily use the name Aliens. Maybe go with Invaders or Martians, but that's just me.

 

I believe there's a lot of potential with Ant themed branding (insects in general are underused in sports). The logo they went with is solid IMO. The name though.... yeesh! Can't help but think Fire Ants or Colony would have been better names than Bivouac. Everybody that saw this post on social media had to look up the meaning of it. Keep it simple Cube lol

 

A little corny how many of the teams in this league feature 3 in it's name in some form. With that said, Triplets is okay to me.

😍😍😍 Aliens are my team!!! Love it.

 

Dig the old Padres colors on Bivouac too.

 

I thought of old school rap names like Treacherous Three or Three Times Dope.

Ice Cube may have to update the lyrics of his Big 3 song to reflect the new teams.

Can't see why not, he tweaked it slightly for year 2.

Not sure how familiar you are with BIG3, but it's a travelling league. Goes from city to city each week.

If the Los Angeles Raiders were a basketball team. Surprised it took Ice Cube this long.

Been a long time since I bought a basketball jersey, but that may have to change... that black Aliens jersey looks too good!
