Blackwater Bossing did not field a team in the inaugural 2021 PBA 3x3 season despite being one of the twelve regular franchise teams of the main 5x5 PBA league. This is due to cost-cutting measures of Blackwater's parent company Ever Bilena which was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.[1] Blackwater announced intention to join in for the third conference in May 2022 but ultimately did not take part.[2][3] The team later joined the PBA 3x3 in the 2022–23 season.[4]

Following the shelving of the PBA 3x3 after the conclusion of the 2023–24 season, the team would be disbanded.[5]
