Watch: LaVar Ball Loses To Ice Cube In 4-Point Shootout At BIG3 League
Ice Cube bested LaVar Ball in quite a surprising way on Sunday.
Ice Cube vs. LaVar Ball BIG3 Four-Point Challenge
The rapper, actor and co-founder of BIG3 — a three-on-three basketball league — defeated the former Cal State and Long Beach City tight end in the four-point challenge during Sunday’s showcase of the league at Los Angeles’ Staples Center. BIG3 is in its eighth week of action.
Ice Cube had challenged Ball in May to the shootout, and had promised to purchase ten sneakers from Ball’s sports apparel line Big Baller Brand if he lost. Ball accepted the challenge on Friday.

Ball sparked controversy earlier this spring after making comments about how his athlete sons — one of whom is former UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball, the No.2 overall draft pick to the Los Angeles Lakers this year — are better than Stephen Curry. LaVar Ball also took a shot at LeBron James saying they likely wouldn’t be as good athletes and the Cleveland Cavaliers star forward’s children, as James or as his own sons.
Ball — who recently made an appearance on WWE’s “Monday Night RAW” — also drew headlines after saying that a pair of Big Baller Brand shoes would cost $495, and for claiming that he could defeat Michael Jordan in a one-on-one game.
Prior to facing Ice Cube, Ball told HoopJab’s Neal Anthony Johnson he “usually [goes] from the seven-point line” and responded “do the same thing I taught him” when asked if son LaMelo had offered him any pointers.
