Isaiah Briscoe is still out here hooping.
The former Kentucky Wildcat has spent the last couple of seasons playing overseas and in the NBA’s G League. Prior to that, he had a promising stint with the Orlando Magic in 2018-19, but a poorly-timed injury cost him his spot. Now, Briscoe is putting on a show in the BIG3 basketball league.
Briscoe made his debut in the BIG3 on Sunday for his team, Trilogy, scoring 28 (!) of his squad’s 50 points as he led them to a Week 1 win. He also added six rebounds to his stat line while pulling off some filthy moves that you can check out below.

Briscoe’s Trilogy teammates were NBA veterans Jarrett Jack and Amir Johnson along with Qyntel Woods and James White. Jack was the team’s second-leading scorer with 15 points. Briscoe, who is just 25 years old, is one of the younger players in the BIG3 league, which is typically tailored toward players who are past their respective primes. Some of the league’s stars include Joe Johnson, Al Jefferson, Rashard Lewis, Isaiah Austin, and plenty more.
Back in June, the BIG3 held a two-round draft where 20 players were selected by the 12 teams. Briscoe fell to the 15th overall pick in the second round, but is looking like an early steal.
