“We have seen tremendous growth not only in teams, but also in the fans that have experienced the Nike Basketball 3ON3 Tournament presented by NBC4 Southern California over the last five years. Our 6th year will continue in that spirit and we look forward to welcoming back teams that have played in prior years, as well as new ones,” said Lee Zeidman, Senior Vice President & General Manager, L.A. LIVE & STAPLES Center. “The greatest part about the event is that anyone can play no matter what your skill level may be. It is a fantastic way to spend a summer weekend outside with your friends and family.”
The tournament features six main divisions of play: Adult Elite, Adult, High School, Youth, Special Olympics and Wheelchair. The player’s next grade for the high school division must be 9th-12th and player’s next grade for the youth division must be 3rd-8th.

The Nike Elite Division will consist of three categories of players: Women, Men’s 6 Foot and under and Men’s Over 6 Foot. Brackets will be formed based upon these criteria and those delineated above.
The Nike Basketball 3ON3 presented by NBC4 Southern California is free and open to the public.
