Libby Schaaf with Ice Cube and LL Cool J? Wasn’t she with MC Hammer for the Warriors Parade?

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf is building her Hip Hop cred by as she put it on Twitter, “catching up with two legends”.

But, to be sure, Libby didn’t just hang with the rappers..

This was at The Big 3 Basketball Tournament, Friday night at Oracle Arena. But what’s The Big 3 Basketball Tournament?

Just What Is The Big 3?

The Big 3 Basketball Tournament is a kind of cross between the NBA and street ball. Established January 11th 2017, the league takes, for the most part, retired NBA stars like Barron Davis, Mike Bibby, Jermaine O’Neill (and some even more legendary NBA greats like Gary Payton, Rick Barry, Nancy Lieberman, and George Gervin as coaches), and pits them against each other in a traveling road-show game of 3-on-3. The rules for The Big 3 are unique to the league, very different from those for FIFA.

The Big 3 was created by Ice Cube, who paired with Jeff Kwatinetz, his Chief Operating Officer with CubeVision, Cube’s film and television production company located in Santa Monica. Former Oakland Raiders Chief Executive Officer Amy Trask serves as the Chairman of The Board.

The Oakland Oracle Arena “The Big 3” Basketball Tournament event was week 3 in the inaugural season of the sports entertainment league, which played the first two games in Houston and Chicago respectively.

According to the schedule, this set of games in Oakland, on Friday night, was it for the Bay Area. Then, it’s on to Detroit, next Miami, Toronto, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, and The Big 3 Championship in Brooklyn, New York, set for August 24th. (See the schedule, here.)
