Big3 to host quarantined tournament in April amid coronavirus outbreak

The Big3 plans to hold a 3-on-3 tournament in April featuring players who have tested negative for the coronavirus and who are willing to be quarantined in a Los Angeles house with a basketball facility on site, according to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes. 

The tournament is an attempt to appease potential fans who are currently without live professional sports as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

“As long as we can protect the players, which we will do through proper testing and quarantine, Ice Cube and I feel we can give fans some safe, entertaining brand of basketball to get everyone through this pandemic,” league founder Jeff Kwatinetz told Yahoo Sports. “Cube and I have been in the entertainment business for 30 years. This is our job. People want to be entertained with all we’re going through and enjoy our sports. We think this will help.”
