After making a WWE appearance, LaVar Ball is accepting Ice Cube’s challenge and will participate in BIG3’s upoming 4-point contest.
LaVar Ball continues his public tour, as Lonzo Ball starts to get set for his rookie NBA season. The elder Ball was on WWE recently, along with Lonzo and LaMelo.
But now it looks like Papa Ball wants to take his talents back to the basketball courts.
Ice Cube and LaVar Ball have been going back and forth all summer long on social media, trying to challenge each other on the hardwood.
As recently as a few days ago, Ice Cube took to Instagram to challenge LaVar Ball to a 4-point contest when BIG3 comes to Staples Center this weekend.
After the post on Instagram, Ice Cube had this to say to Ananth Pandian:
You bring your sons, bring your AAU team, y’all come on down to the Staples Center to the BIG3 this Sunday. Me and you can hit the court and do that four-point shot in front of everybody, if you want to do this. Then I will buy the Big Baller Brands for your whole team.
Well, LaVar Ball and the hype train that follows him and his family wasn’t going to back down to this challenge.
Ball responded on Twitter Friday afternoon, claiming that he will in fact participate in the 4-point challenge. It’s not often that we see the elder Ball actually play basketball. He does his fair share of coaching, promoting and marketing, but this might be one of the few times we’ll see him play at Staples Center.
The future home of Lonzo, Staples Center, will be home to the Ice Cube’s BIG3 tournament this weekend, as it’s been going around the United States, showcasing the different three-on-three games.
Most fans are going to be extremely excited to watch Ball vs. Ice Cube in their 4-point contest.
