The league is expected to begin play in early 2024

NBA legend Kevin Garnett, known for his on-court intensity and charisma, is joining forces with Big Ticket Sports to launch STR33T, a 3×3 pro streetball league set to debut in early 2024. Partnering with Pro League Network, this venture promises an action-packed four-week series featuring men’s, women’s, and co-ed teams, complete with daily and season-long prize pools.

Garnett, a driving force behind HoopItUp, a renowned grassroots 3×3 basketball tour since 1989, expressed his enthusiasm: “HoopItUp is the 3×3 leader, and I’m thrilled to collaborate with the PLN team on STR33T, offering 3×3 players a national platform.”

Pro League Network is capitalizing on the fast-paced nature of 3×3 basketball, tailor-made for digital consumption and sports betting. George Daniel, CEO of Big Ticket Sports and HoopItUp, highlighted the league’s potential, stating, “With average games under 20 minutes, STR33T is a perfect fit for modern sports consumption.”

While STR33T draws comparisons to Ice Cube’s BIG3, it differentiates itself by adhering to FIBA 3×3 rules, as seen in its Olympic debut at the Tokyo Games. Unlike BIG3, STR33T focuses on nurturing 3×3 specialists, fostering a globally popular form of basketball.

PLN co-founders Bill Yucatonis and Mike Salvaris expressed excitement, noting, “The combination of fast-paced 3×3 games and the authentic energy of streetball will be thrilling for these co-ed professionals. Teaming up with NBA legend KG takes this venture to another level.”
