This past January, famed rapper and entrepreneur Ice Cube created BIG3 — a three-on-three basketball league featuring former NBA players.
It’s an incredibly cool concept — considering fans will get to see the likes of Allen Iverson, Chauncey Billups, Rashard Lewis, Steve Francis, Kenyon Martin, Mike Bibby, Jason Williams, Charles Oakley, and Latrell Sprewell all play for their respective teams. Iverson, Oakley, George Gervin, Clyde Drexler, Gary Payton, and Julius “Dr. J” Erving will also be participating as coaches.
During a promo for the league (slated to take place this June), Cube drilled a 30-foot three-point shot. He then called out LaVar Ball — the outspoken father of soon-to-be high draft pick Lonzo Ball:

If the elder Ball can make a three-pointer from 30 feet out, Cube will buy 10 pairs of the highly controversial — and expensive — ZO2: PRIME by Lonzo Ball shoes. There’s no word on whether LaVar will accept the 4-point challenge or not.
Ball did say he would’ve beaten Michael Jordan (in his prime) if the two played one-on-one. As such, this challenge should be a walk in the park.
