In a recent interview with CBS, Ice Cube expressed how much he would love to have Kobe Bryant be a part of his BIG3 basketball league.

Well now, according to Basketball Society’s Brandon Robinson (Scoop B), Bryant will play in Cube’s BIG3 next season. These news reportedly came from league co-founder Jeff Kwatinetz during a weekly conference call.

Cube has expressed that he likes giving older athletes a platform after retirement and with Kobe involved, it will certainly take the league to new heights.

Bryant’s inclusion in the BIG3 would certainly help bring fans to the stadiums to see of Bryant still has what it takes to play competitively.

As the NBA’s third-leading all-time scorer, 2008 NBA MVP, 18-time All-Star and 2-time NBA Finals MVP, Los Angeles is ready to see Kobe back on the court. However, recent updates have made it clear that the Kobe camp is not interested in playing again.
