Shortly after LaVar Ball unveiled Big Baller Brand’s signature shoe for his now Los Angeles Lakers rookie son Lonzo Ball, Ice Cube went at the entrepreneurial and ostentatious father with a challenge: make a BIG3 four-point shot and Cube will buy 10 pairs of the BBB ZO2 sneakers.
Ball not only happily accepted Cube’s challenge but he upped the stakes of the bet. Now the challenge is if Ball makes a four-point shot before Cube, the rapper has to buy BBB sneakers for LaVar’s whole AAU team.
A couple of months have passed since the challenge was issued and accepted, but with the BIG3 heading to sunny Los Angeles this weekend, Cube took to Instagram to remind Ball about the bet.
“I ain’t forgot about that four-point challenge,” Cube tells Ball. “Now check this out. 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.”
Hopefully, Ball will follow through on the challenge and actually show up at the BIG3 in Los Angeles on Sunday. If not, Cube could quite possibly drop a diss track that Ball and Big Baller Brand may never recover from.
