Former NBA Guard Jason Williams Injured in BIG3

Rashard Lewis' free throw to complete a three-point play gave 3 Headed Monster a 62-60 victory over Ghost Ballers in the first game. I've been retired for seven years.

Iverson and James played together on the 2004 USA Olympic basketball team.

"The playing part is not going to be what you expect", he said afterward. The eight teams will begin competing on live TV on Monday via Fox Sports on the FS1 channel. Both Corey Maggette and Jason Williams, who each played at least 12 National Basketball Association seasons, left their respective games after suffering knee injuries, while everyone else fought through rust and each other. "Some of them aren't even out of basketball-they've been playing overseas and other types of ways". Bodies were banging in the paint, and players were diving all over the floor for loose balls.

Lewis finished with 27 points, and former No. 1 pick Kwame Brown had 17 points and 13 rebounds for the 3 Headed Monsters. Lewis punctuated his basket with a barrage of trash talk aimed at Ricky Davis. These are guys who are elite professionals and a lot of them are only a couple of years out of the league. Those teams are 3's Company, Killer 3's, Tri-State, 3-Headed Monsters, Trilogy, Ghost Ballers, Ball Hogs and Power. As you could imagine, this game featured a mid-2000s-esque number of long, midrange twos.

Andre Owens recorded a double-double on 20 points and 15 rebounds in the win. Therefore, fans can catch games on FS1 a day later than the schedule. Games are first to 60, and teams must win by at least two points.

"As we do more and more of these, we'll get better".

Then he saw how serious guys were when they played preseason scrimmage games and realized he needed to get himself in better shape. The consensus was that it was all worth it, even if they were mostly here for "The Answer". "They want to be the first champions, so I'm not anxious about that at all".

Allen Iverson plans to be more spectator than scorer in the Big3. A few hours later, Kenyon Martin suffered what he called the first pulled hamstring of his career.

The game everyone was most excited for ended up being the most boring.

Iverson shot 1-for-6 for two points and added two assists in only nine minutes of action, but he now is 1-0 as a coach, because 3's Company beat the Ball Hogs, 61-51.

Al Harrington scored 25 points as Trilogy cruised in the final game of the day.

And that might not stop more players from wanting to play. "So we're here to fill that void for the people that appreciate the way the game has been played forever, you know what I'm saying?" Jackson picked up a technical early in the game for shoving McCants. But what Ice Cube and Kwatinetz are really banking on is being able to tap into basketball fans' existing connection to three-on-three basketball and to the already established players. Not sure how Billups can run an organization when he's been such a distraction to his current team. "It's as far as it looks when you get out there". White Chocolate tweaked his knee but should be ready to go in a couple weeks, according to Payton.

Assorted celebrities were in the house, including LL Cool J and Whoopi Goldberg. At 42 years old, the former NBA MVP said he doesn't expect to be playing heavy minutes in the 10-game season. The post game came to play.

Here's the one area that the BIG3 can improve on very quickly: Make it first to 40 instead of first to 60. No technical difficulties. No confusion over the rules.

It's a daring venture considering the veritable graveyard of forgotten sports leagues created in the vein of giants like the National Basketball Association and NFL.
