Trilogy - BIG3 Summer of Fire 2023
Introducing the first dynasty in BIG3 history, Trilogy, who solidified their legacy by clinching their third championship in 2022. Their achievement becomes even more remarkable considering the departure of Team Captain Jarret Jack, one of the league's top players, before the season. Yet, Trilogy defied expectations and successfully defended their title, showcasing their resilience and depth. Unsurprisingly, they aim to continue their winning ways in the 2023 campaign, adhering to the age-old adage of not fixing what isn't broken.
Assuming the Captain role is James "Flight" White, the only player to capture three championships in BIG3 history. Known for his exceptional athleticism, size, and a silky three-point shot, White stands as one of the league's most consistent scorers. Assisting White as Co-Captains are Earl Clark, a versatile 6'10" big man who can stretch the floor with his shooting, and Amir Johnson, a robust 6'9" inside presence with a soft touch around the rim. Johnson's imposing physicality poses significant challenges for opponents when he establishes position in the low post.
Returning for the 2023 season is Isaiah Briscoe, a shot-making maestro with exceptional ball-handling skills. Briscoe's breakout performance in 2022 proved vital to Trilogy's ability to thrive in Jack's absence. His relentless drives to the basket and remarkable strength near the rim make him a nightmare for defenders to handle. While his outside shot may fluctuate, Briscoe remains a formidable force regardless. Completing the roster is the ever-reliable swingman, David Hawkins.
Head Coach Stephen Jackson boasts an impressive coaching record, having secured the BIG3 Championship in each of his two years at the helm. As Trilogy sets its sights on a potential three-peat, Jackson's leadership and strategic acumen will undoubtedly play a crucial role in their pursuit of further glory.
The stage is set for Trilogy to etch their name in BIG3 history once again. With a formidable lineup, unwavering determination, and the guidance of a seasoned coach, Trilogy possesses all the ingredients for continued dominance. Will they secure their third consecutive championship in 2023? The answer awaits as Trilogy marches forward, fueled by their championship pedigree and relentless pursuit of greatness.
