Corey Maggette reacts to Will Bynum breaking his single-game record in BIG3
Game recognize game. This was exactly what former NBA star Corey Maggette recently demonstrated when he took to Twitter to congratulate former Detroit Pistons guard Will Bynum for the latter’s record-breaking performance in the BIG3 on Friday night.
Bynum led his team, Bivouac, to a 51-42 victory against Stephen Jackson’s Killer 3s, with Bynum tearing it up for 33 points, eight rebounds, and three assists in what was easily one of the most memorable performances in BIG3 history.
Maggette, who himself led the charge for his team, Power, to a victory on Friday night, was one of the first to congratulate Bynum for his tremendous performance:
. I’m so proud of my boy @12Thrill for showing #Chicago and the @big3 what he brings to the table. It is only fitting for a fellow Chicagoan to break my 32pts scoring record last season and the Thrill with 33pts. You got me pic.twitter.com/lBAa1hshjL

As he described in his tweet, Maggette set the league scoring record last seasons during his MVP campaign. It would be short-lived, however, with Bynum now the new owner of the league’s scoring title.
The last time we saw Bynum in the NBA was during the 2014-15 season. This was in a brief stint with the Washington Wizards, with the 6-foot guard signing a 10-day deal with the injury-marred squad.
Bynum is most remembered for his time with the Pistons, where he would spend six full seasons. The Chicago native was a reliable playmaker for the team’s second unit, as he averaged 8.4 points, 1.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 0.7 steals in 18.9 minutes per contest.
Bynum is now plying his trade in the BIG3 along with other former NBA players who are looking to extend their careers in the highly popular professional league.
