After countless calls and months of planning, his BIG3 basketball league has announced major changes for the upcoming season of professional 3-on-3 hoops.

The league is now officially recognizing that athletes are playing a completely new sport known as FIREBALL3 as the result of game innovations, unique rules and league policies introduced by the BIG3 over its first three seasons, such as the 4-point shot and 14-second shot clock.

The BIG3 has also lowered its minimum age for qualifying athletes from 27 to 22, will use a red ball known as a FIREBALL and will hold open tryouts to welcome all athletes starting in 2020.

Also, once per half, a team can challenge a foul call with the “Bring the Fire” rule, which will result in an in-game one-on-one possession with the victor winning the call.
