The BIG3 never ceases to innovate in the world of basketball. Their latest plans may be a welcomed relief for hoops-starved fans everywhere.

Yahoo! Sports Chris Haynes reports that the BIG3 is planning to launch a quarantined, three-on-three, tournament. BIG3 founders Ice Cube and Jeff Kwatinetz are in discussions with networks on broadcasting the tournament and accompanying reality show.

Haynes reports that the league would consists of 16-22 players. All of the players will have tested negative for coronavirus and will be quarantined together in Los Angeles. The BIG3 would provide the home for the players and the basketball facilities.

The players would also be filmed throughout their daily lives to add further drama beyond the on-court product. 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.”
