Ice Cube Rumors

Gangsta games made him do it. Ice Cube was slapped with a $250 million lawsuit on Friday for supposedly poaching hoops stars — and proprietary ideas — from the newly formed Champion Basketball League. He did this to boost his own professional 3-on-3 venture, called BIG3, according to the filing in Manhattan Supreme Court. CBL’s founder, Carl George, says the legendary rapper and actor, whose real name is O’Shea Jackson, and BIG3’s co-founder Jeff Kwatinetz, got close to CBL brass and players only to steal their ideas and goods after their 2014 launch.
LaVar Ball, who most recently said he could beat Michael Jordan with one hand tied behind his back, on Sunday lost a shooting contest to rapper Ice Cube with the benefit of both hands untied. Side by side for 90 seconds, Ball and Ice Cube shot “4-pointers,’’ 30 feet from the basket, during an intermission at the rapper’s BIG3 event at Staples Center. Ball made one. Ice Cube made two.
