Ice Cube is looking forward to the day Carmelo Anthony suits up for the BIG3 league, but says that shouldn’t be for a long time, because he thinks ‘Melo can still get it done in the NBA.
The BIG3 has become the go-to spot for ex-league guys to flex their skills, with dudes like Al Harrington, Stephen Jackson, and soon to be Lamar Odom all competing at a high level.
Anthony’s not doing anything right now, so when we got league boss Ice Cube at LAX we asked if he’s clamoring to have ‘Melo join up … not so much.
“Of course, we’d accept him. But, he still could play in the NBA, he should be in the NBA.”
Don’t get Cube wrong, he’d LOVE Anthony in the BIG3, but he thinks the former scoring champ still “got some NBA in him.”
Dope that Cube is supporting Anthony, but we have a question … if Kevin Durant and Steph Curry wanted to leave the Warriors and join the BIG3, would he discourage them too?
Sure he would.
