RECAP: The Big 3 Hits Chicago

Written by NEWS

Chicago has had an exciting summer so far. We’ve had festivals galore, major concerts, food festivals and we even had our first Conplex Con this past July. Of course, we’re nothing without the sports.

Ice Cube’s “Big 3” basketball tournament returns to Chicago bigger and better than before. The tournament consists of twelve teams with 3 on 3 games played by former NBA Allstars and legends competing in 18 cities. This season, the teams will play 3 games in each city they visit. Last weekend, Chicago got to enjoy the tournament as well as a special halftime performance from Valee.
