The NFL Draft ended on Saturday. One day later, we got a far more important draft: the inaugural BIG3 Draft, which was held in Las Vegas. The BIG3, a basketball league formed by Ice Cube which features now-retired NBA players like Allen Iverson playing 3-on-3, already has eight established team, but there was a sizable draft pool to round out every roster.

Here’s what the teams look like pre-draft:

3’s Company: Player-coach/captain Allen Iverson, co-captain DerMarr Johnson
Killer 3’s: Captain Chauncey Billups, co-captain Stephen Jackson, player-coach Charles Oakley
Tri-State: Captain Jermaine O’Neal, co-captain Bonzi Wells, coach Julius Erving
3 Headed Monsters: Captain Rashard Lewis, co-captain Jason Williams, coach Gary Payton
Trilogy: Captain Kenyon Martin, co-captain Al Harrington, coach Rick Mahorn
Ghost Ballers: Captain Mike Bibby, co-captain Ricky Davis, coach George Gervin
Ball Hogs: Captain Brian Scalabrine, coach Rick Barry
Power: Captain Corey Maggette, co-captain Cuttino Mobley, coach Clyde Drexler

So as you can see, there’s a ton of star power but a serious lack of depth, especially on the Ball Hogs, which have one player and a coach. Well, that’s why we have drafts. This one took place at The Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort Casino in Las Vegas. Here are the full results, via Nick Angstadt and Joey Devine:
