After the conclusion of the inaugural season, awards were voted on by the players. The MVP was won by 3 Headed Monsters forward Rashard Lewis after he averaged 21.3 points per game. Trilogy's undefeated season led to several awards for members of the team including DPOY won by James White and Coach of the Year awarded to Rick Mahorn.
The following are notable former NBA players who have played or coached in at least one BIG3 game. Notability is determined by receiving an NBA accolade such as being named to an All-Star team, an All-NBA Team (including defense and rookie) or winning an award (6th man of the year for example).
There are a total of eight teams, all of which are traveling teams. Each team's roster will include five players and one coach per team, with allowances to swap players within the wider squad during the time off to allow for injuries or tactical changes. There will be eight games per team in the regular season resulting in an eight-game regular season, as all games are on Sunday with a week off between contests. Games will be weekly quadruple-headers, with each team playing one of the other teams, held in a different locale each week. There will be two playoff games on week nine and a championship game on week ten.

The 2017 BIG3 season kicked off on June 25, 2017, with 4 games at the Barclays Center.
The first ever Big3 Basketball championship was played by team Trilogy as they emerged as the class of the league by completing an undefeated season to win the inaugural BIG3 Championship. In a back-and-forth, a closely-contested matchup featuring the league's two top teams, Trilogy overcame a first-half deficit to defeat 3-Headed Monsters 51-46.
When the BIG3 came to Philadelphia, they highly publicized the return of Philadelphia 76ers great, Allen Iverson. Before the game, Iverson even said "I'm not going to go out there and be the 25-year-old Allen Iverson--you're going to see a 42-year-old man out there," he said. "But to be able to do that, for my fans, I thought that would be cool, just to get back out there again...for my fans to get that flashback." However, hours before the game, it was announced Iverson would not be playing. Iverson claimed that he did not play due to "advice from my doctor." Iverson's decision was frowned upon by many in the Philadelphia community.
On Sunday, July 30th, the BIG3 was scheduled to have games being played in Dallas, Texas. Iverson was slated to appear for his team, 3's Company, but failed to show up to the event or notify league officials about his decision. The next day, TMZ Sports posted pictures showing Iverson at a Chicago Area casino, the morning of the scheduled game.
