Ice Cube Forms NBA League!
Though Renaissance man O’Shea Jackson Sr. a.k.a “Ice Cube” has been slightly absent from movies and music, he’s still been putting in work behind the scenes.
The former N.W.A. rapper recently announced that he will be founding a 3-on-3 basketball league for retired players!
Cube is giving the “old heads” a chance to come back and play the game they once dominated in. “I thought of this concept as a fan who got sick of seeing his heroes retire and not play anymore. A lot of these guys can still play once they retire – just not the back-to-backs or four games in five nights,” he explained to Vertical Podcast.
The league, also known as “BIG3”, will feature eight teams of five players that will tour all over the U.S. showcasing their skills.
