LOS ANGELES — The Big3 announced Saturday that Snoop Dogg and recording artist Jeffrey Osborne will perform at the games scheduled to be played Sunday at STAPLES Center. 

Osborne — who has performed at World Series games and NBA Finals games — will lead off with his rendition of the national anthem. Snoop will take the mic at halftime of one of the four games.

Ice Cube’s professional 3-on-3 basketball league takes center stage in L.A. for the final week of regular season play before moving to Seattle for playoffs [August 20] and Las Vegas for the title game [August 26].

Lavar Ball also announced earlier in the week that he wouldn’t shy away from the challenge Ice Cube put forth earlier in the season. He challenged Ball — Lonzo Ball’s father — to a four-point challenge at a Big3 event. The league’s finally in Los Angeles and Ball took to social media this week to let Cube know exactly what was on his mind. 

Charles Oakley is also expected to play, suiting up for the Killer 3s. The 53-year-old joined the Big3 as a player/coach and will be satisfying those ‘player’ duties in L.A. this weekend.
