Jeff Kwatinetz Rumors
To assure the league is operating under safe conditions, players will be quarantined in a large home provided by the league, sources said. A basketball court/facility will be built on site. If a player breaks quarantine at any point during the tournament, he would be eliminated and removed from the premises, sources said. The games and the players’ daily lives will be captured on camera for added drama and storylines. The production crew would be stationed nearby but offsite from the players.
“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,” 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.”
BIG3 co-founder Jeff Kwatinetz is NOT throwing in the towel on Kobe Bryant playing in his league next season — telling TMZ Sports he trusts his source. After Kobe’s rep shot down Jeff’s previous claim that he’d be suiting up for the 2019 season, we saw JK out in NYC … and he made it clear he’s not backing down. “There’s no mix-up. Someone who’s a good source, who I’m not gonna reveal, says he’s gonna play.”
Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon was the target of a bizarre bribery plot by the Qatari government, rapper Ice Cube and his business partner have claimed in a lawsuit, DailyMail.com can disclose. The rapper and Jeff Kwatinetz claim that a Qatari investor in their BIG3 basketball league tried to get access to Bannon when he was Trump’s White House chief strategist – and that the investor was a front for the Qatari government.
Mason, who last month accused Kwatinetz of calling the league’s players “rich n—-rs,” adds in the suit that Kwatinetz’s insensitivity “is evidenced by his repeated discussions with company employees of his relationship with Steve Bannon and his defense of Bannon’s character.”
