Big3 co-founder Ice Cube was confident about launching the 3-on-3 league of former NBA players last year, but at the same time, he wasn't exactly comfortable.

"Until I saw enough guys to fill rosters, I wasn't happy," Ice Cube says of the inaugural season. "But this year, I'm much happier, much more calm. I understand what's going on. A lot of guys came in way better shape than last year. Guys are taking it serious. So I don't have to worry about that anymore, if there's going to be enough guys to play."
