That rolled right into a legends 3×3 basketball game where world famous Hot Sauce and the original White Chocolate stole the show with a full arsenal of moves on display.
Then it was the ladies turn with The Basketball Beauties League holding an all-star game where MJ Icey cashed in on a game winning shot!
This Season VBL held one of the most spectacular dunk contests Venice has EVER seen. New Williams, Tyler Currie, Elijah Bonds, , , all went head-to-head and round for round but it was New Williams and Tyler Currie that stole the show and gave the fans a dunk off for the ages. Compton AV showed up in the final rounds for a performance of his hit Money Dance and rolled up his beautiful Mercedes Benz in the perfect spot to get dunked over and New was up for the challenge. In his first try he aligned a person in front of the hood of the car and dunked over not only the hood but a person as well! Earning all tens from the judges and securing a VBL Dunk Contest championship which makes New Williams the first to sweep the LA contests as he had won the drew league dunk contest as well earlier in the summer.
Finally, the grand finale took place in which team Timeless and SNS All Stars battled it out in a best of 3 series.
Game one was an epic back and forth with a dramatic ending that left Timeless out of sorts for the rest of the series and SNS took full advantage with rookie Jordan Giusti and Dreamchaser showing why they’ve made it this far. Jordan hit big shot after big shot and when it came down to the final shot, he stepped up with no hesitation coming off a big screen, stepping back, and firing a 2-point bomb to seal a championship for SNS and to send Timeless home for the summer. Jordan earned finals MVP honors and champagne burst into the air.
