According to Shams Charania, the former NFL quarterback invested in Ice Cube’s BIG3 league, which he stated was on the verge of possibly shutting down.
Kaepernick’s investment gives the league new life to continue on into the future.
“Colin Kaepernick is investing in Ice Cube’s BIG3 league, which was on the verge of potentially shutting down. Kaepernick’s new deal will help the 3-on-3 competition continue operating and growing.”
After starting in 2017, the BIG3 league was becoming the premier destination for 3-on-3 professional basketball and saw three successful seasons that drew in larger and larger crowds with each game.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 forced the league to shut down for a year and it hurt the league’s bottom line.
The league is back and now with a fresh investment, the sky is the limit.
Kaepernick has denied this story and says he has nothing to do with Big3.
Despite sources close to hip-hop artist Ice Cube’s BIG3 league saying Colin Kaepernick is joining as a new investor, a representative for Kaepernick denied the former NFL quarterback’s involvement and said he is not investing.
“It’s just not true,” a representative for Kaepernick said early Thursday.
Sources close to the league claimed that Kaepernick’s investment would allow the league to continue operating. Multiple players with the BIG3 league had been preparing for a potential shutdown, sources told The Athletic.
BIG3 is a 3-on-3 basketball league founded by Ice Cube and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz.
Shams has not commented on the report and if he was given wrong information not. We will have to see if the BIG3 survives after this season.
