NBA legend Kevin Garnett is working on a 3×3 basketball league. STR33T will feature professional players, and organizers hope to launch it by early 2024. Also, Garnett’s Big Ticket Sports is working with Pro League Network to bring the league to life.
Over four weeks, men’s, women’s, and mixed teams will compete for daily and season-long prize pools in the STR33T series. HoopItUp, a grassroots 3×3 basketball tour, has had millions of participants since its debut in 1989, and Big Ticket Sports owns and operates it.
According to bookie pay per head reports, the 3×3 format is ideal for Pro League Network’s goal of producing exciting sporting events that can be bet on. Bettors do not have to wait the usual two or three hours for the outcome of significant professional sports events.
Garnett to Launch 3×3 Basketball League
It is hard to avoid drawing parallels to Ice Cube’s BIG3, yet the NBA and the G League are worlds apart. As the sport of FIBA 3×3 had its Olympic debut at the Tokyo Games, when the United States women’s team (composed of WNBA stars Jackie Young, Kelsey Plum, Allisha Gray, and Stefanie Dolson) won the gold medal, the audience may be aware with the regulations under which STR33T will compete. Instead of hiring retired NBA players, STR33T will seek 3×3 experts who want to help expand what has become one of the most popular forms of basketball globally.
According to pay per head sportsbook reports, the former NBA champion and Hall of Famer has seamlessly transitioned into the entertainment industry since retiring from basketball in 2016. He hosts TNT’s Area 21 and co-starred in the highly acclaimed film Uncut Gems with Adam Sandler. With his expanding portfolio of sports and media holdings, Garnett has joined the ranks of NBA veterans like Shaquille O’Neal, Dwyane Wade, Magic Johnson, and Michael Jordan.
As part of the SHOWTIME Basketball network, Garnett now broadcasts KG Certified, a weekly in-depth look at everything basketball-related that includes interviews with some of the most influential personalities in the sport.
