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.
