Basketball Jones

Get your three-on-three fix at Bayfront Park

Today’s the day to Febreze the spicy scent of mothballs out of your charmed number 23 jersey and pull your lucky sweatband out of its frosted glass case. Burger King’s Kings of the Court 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament is coming to Miami. Forget American Idol -- you’ve been waiting all your life for a moment like this.

The tour has hit 14 other American cities searching for the best three-man (and woman) teams, and now it’s Miami’s chance to shine. The game is street ball, basketball’s unruly but undeniably more fun, younger brother; so if you’re one of those foul-calling, ref-beseeching players, there are some seats in the bleachers reserved just for you. Last year’s games were a little soggy thanks to some typical Miami weather, but we’re thinking that the b-ball gods aren’t going to let that happen twice. This free all-day event runs from 10:00 to 6:00 at Bayfront Park and will also include games, contests, and prizes for those without the balls to visit www.bk3on3.com and register their team.
Sat., Nov. 17, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2007
