Maybe next year, Portland.
The Big 3 has officially announced that they will cancel the 2020 season due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
With most sporting events beginning play with no fans in the stands, the man in charge of the Big 3 (Ice Cube) decided it was best to wait it out until next season with fans in participation.
We tried everything in our power to give our fans a nice 2020 season, but with a long list of obstacles, we decided to shift our focus to having a great 2021 season with our fans in the stands.
Back in February, the Big 3 released its schedule for the 2020 season, and the city of Portland was on the list as an important day in the Big 3 season.
It is the day the playoffs were supposed to start.
The Big 3 is in its fourth year and would have made its way into Portland for the first time since being created.
Not many other sporting events come to Portland in the summer, and with baseball's Portland Diamond Project on hiatus, the people of Portland were more than ready to have the Big 3 stop by in August.

Can Damian Lillard, Melo and crew compete in the Big 3 playoffs since they’re in Portland? Please? https://t.co/AipXFw1vNj— Mike J. Asti (@MikeAsti11) February 20, 2020
Don’t get to bummed out, because the league is looking to resume once again during the summer of 2021.
Will the schedule be the same as this year’s once the season gets going again? No one has those answers yet, but let’s hope we see Portland when the 2021 season gets released early next year.
