Entertainment mogul Ice Cubes Big3 basketball league is looking for a rebound.During a conference call with reporters Thursday, Big3s backers had planned to tout their incredible success and ambitious plans to expand the fledgling league into new markets.But Cube and his business partner, entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz, also revealed some ongoing challenges facing the league, including the end of its two-year TV contract with Fox Sports.It is really time to move on, Cube said.Big3 has spent much of the last year locked in a bitter legal dispute with a Qatari investment firm and has struggled to recruit a deep-pocketed investor to help back the leagues hoped-for bid for the Fox sports channels.Cube and Kwatinetz previewed their plans for the leagues expansion: Big3 intends to grow to 12 teams from eight this year, and the league plans to widen its tour to 18 cities, up from 10.,Although its games which consist of former NBA basketball players competing three on three have brought in large crowds to sports arenas, TV rights deals are the lifeblood of professional sports leagues.Big3, Kwatinetz and others say, has been fielding interest from other sports broadcasters and the group hopes to have a new TV home by June, when the leagues third season tips off.Cube and Kwatinetz downplayed the termination of the Fox Sports TV contract.The company [Fox] is going to be a little different after Walt Disney Co. buys much of 21st Century Fox, Kwatinetz said.,Were both competing for a similar asset, potentially, Kwatinetz said.The league has been trying to scrape together as much as $15 billion to make a competitive bid for the Fox regional sports channels that Disney must sell after the Burbank entertainment giant completes its $71.3-billion purchase of much of Fox.,Kwatinetz said that tennis star Serena Williams, entertainer L.L. Cool J and former basketball star Julius Erving were interested in joining their bid for the regional sports networks.The U.S. Justice Department is forbidding Disney from acquiring the 22 regional sports networks as part of its proposed Fox purchase because Disney already owns sports juggernaut ESPN.,Several people close to the auction say the odds are great that the 22 networks will be split up because that would generate more money for Disney.Kwatinetz, during the conference call, seemed to acknowledge that their bid for some or all of the Fox local sports channels might collapse.Ice Cube and I dont need a big asset to prove that were cool, he said.
