Ice Cube has developed quite a following with his BIG3 basketball league which acts as a three-on-three league where retired NBA stars can all come together for some exciting basketball. The league has seen quite a bit of success so far and last night, the league had its annual draft. While he wasn’t drafted, Lamar Odom was picked up by the Enemies and was even named a co-captain to Gilbert Arenas who is the main captain of the squad.
Of course, Odom has had his troubles with drugs in the past and had to give up his NBA career because of it. Thankfully, Odom has been able to clean himself up and Ice Cube says he’s been going hard in the gym to get himself back in game shape. Cube even spoke to TMZ recently where he praised Odom for his effort. He believes Odom can be one of the stars of the league and is already putting some hefty expectations on him.
“A lot of people counted him out, but not us,” Cube said. “I think he’s gonna be our comeback player of the year.”
With the league starting soon, we’ll be able to see whether or not Odom can still get it done on the court. The big man was known for being a great sixth-man on the Lakers back in the day.
