2019 BIG3 basketball schedule: How to watch playoffs, TV channels, rosters for third season of Ice Cube's 3-on-3 league

The BIG3 basketball league, co-founded by Ice Cube, is closing in on the finish line in its third season of play, with the playoffs set to start on Sunday, Aug. 25, at New Orleans' Smoothie King Center. The No. 1 seeded Triplets, led by BIG3 leading-scorer Joe Johnson, will take on the No. 4 seeded 3 Headed Monsters, while the No. 2 seeded Killer 3's will hope to knock off defending champion Power for the other spot in the championship game. 

The 3-on-3 league has expanded this summer, bumping up the number of teams from eight to 12, and increasing the number of cities that they visit. All games will be broadcast on CBS, CBS Sports Network and CBSSports.com throughout the season.

Plenty of big-name players are back in the fold this season, including Amar'e Stoudemire, Carlos Boozer, Rashard Lewis and Stephen Jackson. Other players joining the fold include Josh Smith, Gilbert Arenas, Mario Chalmers and Jason Terry. Last season's champion, Power, is back and ready to defend its title behind head coach Nancy Lieberman, while the No. 1 seed Triplets will hope to steal their crown in the upcoming postseason. 

Here's a look at the complete 2019 rosters for every team, followed by the full season schedule, scores and viewing information.
