    'Horn coaching has me intrigued, but this looks like a bunch of guys who will be drinking Ensure instead of Gatorade on the sideline.

    I don't think much actual coaching will take place in this thing. Perhaps Charles Oakley will pull Bup Bup from the game if he takes too many 4-pointers.

    The coaches were added to give the league more credibility (Dr. J, George Gervin, Rick Barry, Clyde Drexler, etc.).

    He's not only in the league, he is teaming up with Mo Evans.

    My biggest regret as a Pistons fan is that I never saw Ricky Davis suit up for Motown and score on his own basket.

    First to 60 wins!

    Just watched the 3-Headed Monsters eek out their win in a nail biter over the Ghost Ballers on FS1,

    Who said you are too old to play? These guys looked good out there ...especially since they don't have to run up and down the court... 48 year old Chris Jackson (aka Abdul-rahm) couldn't hit the winning 3, but he still looked decent with the frosty go tee.

    Wondering if we should add Gary Payton to the Pistons bench..to add some defensive coaching??

    Just purchased a couple of tickets for week 8 (August 13th) at the Staples Center, before the local celebs buy them up... Hopefully I will remember that I have them then. :biggrin:

    Hopefully, there won't be many more injuries to these old geezers before then...

    Yep, didn't think about that. Half of teams may have a different rosters by then with a bunch of old Z leaguers taking the place of the current players. :)

    There will be four games so we will see all 8 teams playing ..

    Desperate for some basketball, I gave this a try last night. It didn't hold my interest. I'll try again when some of the bigger starts (Kwame Brown) are playing.

    I missed the games. Was Bup Bup on the sideline coaching?

    If he was, I didn't see him. Corey Magette, Baby Al Harrington, Cuttino Mobley and Deshaun Stevenson were some of the players.

    Billups is supposed to be a co-player/coach with Charles Oakley on the Killer Threes team. That team fared the worst, so maybe Bup Bup needs to suit up next week. The earlier articles said the Billups was supposed to be a captain and actually play.

    Perhaps the GM offer from the Cavs caused CB to sit out the first week:

    Chauncey Billups won't play in BIG3 League Debut
