Ice Cube, the hip-hop legend, actor and co-founder of the BIG3, has been trying to get Bryant to join the league. The five-time NBA champion, however, has always said no.
BIG3 co-founder Jeff Kwatinetz jokingly said he expects Bryant will join the league next year and people started running with the story.
“I did hear from a credible source that Kobe is going to be playing next year,” Kwatinetz said. “That’s something, but it may be nothing.”
Turns out, it is nothing.
