NEWS REAL

• The NFL said today (Nov. 13) that it would move the Monday night game on Nov. 19  (ESPN) between the Kansas City Chiefs-Los Angeles Rams, originally scheduled for Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles.

According to the NFL, “The decision is based on the determination — in consultation with the NFLPA and following a meeting and field inspection this afternoon by NFL and club field experts as well as local and independent outside experts — that the playing field at Estadio Azteca does not meet NFL standards for playability and consistency and will not meet those standards by next Monday.”

• CBS said that Tim Tebow would be the host for its in-production reality series, Million Dollar Mile, from LeBron James’ Springhill Entertainment, Warner Bros. and  Fly on the Wall Entertainment. Commentators will be Maria Taylor and Matt Smith. The premise: A team wins $1 million if they can survive an obstacle course being built on real city streets.

• ESPN Events is adding a bowl game to its roster beginning in 2020, the Myrtle Beach Bowl. The game will feature teams from three conference partners: Conference USA, Mid-American Conference and Sun Belt Conference. Each conference will participate up to four times between 2020 and 2025. The Myrtle Beach Bowl will be played in Brooks Stadium, located on the campus of Coastal Carolina, nationally televised on ESPN networks.

• Between now and Nov. 19, every use of #SaluteToService on Twitter will generate a $5 donation, up to $5 million, to the NFL’s military non-profit partners – including the Pat Tillman Foundation, TAPS, USO, Wounded Warrior Project and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

Big3, adidas Launching Young3 Kids Tournament, Clinic For 2018 Season

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

May 23, 2018:
As Big3 prepares for its second season of 3-on-3 games with teams mostly populated by former NBA players, the organization is expanding its landscape to include youngsters who might someday become NBA stars.

In association with partner adidas, Big3 is launching Young3, a 3-on-3 youth basketball initiative.

According to Big3, throughout the season, Young3 will host 3-on-3 tournaments and skills clinics for kids ages 7-14.

The events will take place  in all ten Big3 city stops on Thursdays, ahead of the league's scheduled Friday night prime time games on Fox and FS1.

Former NBA player Jerome Williams, who participated in the Big3's inaugural season, will serve as the president of Young3 and will oversee all program operations.

"As a league, we couldn't be more excited to share our passion for the sport of 3-on-3 with the young people in each community we visit," Clyde Drexler, Big3 commissioner and a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, said in a statement.

"Our hope is that through Young3 we will instill that same enthusiasm for the game, and hopefully cultivate the next generation of Big3 all-stars or Olympic medalists."

All participants will receive a Big3 and adidas-branded jersey.

The second Big3 season is scheduled to begin June 22 in the Toyota Center, Houston.

The championship is scheduled for Aug. 24 in Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY.

Big3, which was created by musician/producer/actor Ice Cube (O’Shea Jackson) and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz, said they will also invest time and money in each city on the tourn “into improving the infrastructure of community courts so players are able to have the ultimate 3-on-3 experience.

“This new community outreach program will work to engage young audiences in the growing popularity of 3-on-3 basketball,” which was added as an official Olympic event beginning with the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo.

Young3 clinics are open to children ages 7-14 and will teach participants three-on-three skills as well as tips and tricks from BIG3 players and coaches who will make special appearances throughout the summer.

(Information on Young3 tournaments and skills clinic is here.)
