– Kevin Garnett is launching a new 3×3 pro street ball league called STR33T
– The league will be a four-week-long tournament for men, women, and co-ed teams with season-long prize pools
– The league will play under FIBA 3×3 regulations and will focus on 3×3 specialists rather than former NBA players
Kevin Garnett, the NBA legend, is making waves once again, this time by investing in a new basketball league called “STR33T.” This 3×3 pro street ball league is set to launch in early 2024 and aims to change the way fans view the sport. To bring his vision to life, Garnett partnered with his sports venture project, Big Ticket Sports, and joined forces with Pro League Network. The competition will span four weeks and include men, women, and co-ed teams competing for season-long prize pools.
“HoopItUp is the leader in 3×3, and I’m excited to work with the PLN team to create a professional series with STR33T that gives the incredible 3×3 players a major platform to show what they can do to fans across the country,” Garnett shared.
To give fans a glimpse of what’s to come, STR33T released a thrilling trailer on their YouTube account yesterday. The league aims to provide almost instant access to information, making it more appealing for bettors. George Daniel, the CEO of Big Ticket Sports and HoopItUp, explained their goal of creating engaging sports events that inspire wagering activities. With the average 3×3 basketball game taking less than 20 minutes, STR33T is designed for digital consumption and sports betting.
While it’s difficult not to draw comparisons to Ice Cube’s BIG3 league, there are significant differences between the two platforms. STR33T will adhere to FIBA 3×3 regulations, similar to what we saw at the Tokyo Olympic Games. The league will primarily consist of 3×3 specialists aiming to become stars in this organic street sport, rather than enlisting former NBA players.
Pro League Network co-founders Bill Yucatonis and Mike Salvaris expressed their excitement about producing a competition that brings out the raw energy of streetball. They believe that combining the fast-paced 3×3 games with the organic energy of streetball will be exhilarating for the co-ed professional ballers. Collaborating with an NBA legend and leader like Garnett takes the league to a whole other level.
With STR33T on the horizon, fans and bettors alike can look forward to a new era of street basketball. The league’s focus on the 3×3 format, adherence to FIBA regulations, and inclusion of rising stars in the streetball scene promises an electrifying experience for players and viewers alike. Stay tuned for more updates as STR33T prepares for its highly anticipated launch in 2024.
