Big 3 Players Complain About Not Being Paid


Earlier this month rapper Ice Cube rallied his fans for support after accusing ESPN and the NBA of sabotaging his Big 3 professional basketball league [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Big 3 players are claiming they aren't being paid on time...

Former NBA player Nick Young says that Ice Cube’s BIG3 league failed in keeping up with its payment schedule for players during its most recent season.
“I think they need to get back to traveling to all different cities like they was,” the shooting guard said when asked of his time with the league. “‘Cause this past year, it felt like things weren’t ran well ’cause sometimes we ain’t get our money. Things got cancelled. Games got cancelled in the middle of the season. They didn’t know if they was gonna have a season. It was a lot, it was a lot this year.”
The NBA champion expounded further, adding “I feel like they need to get the right investments and really organize it better because this year in the middle of the season, the season was about to be over ’cause they didn’t have the money or something like that.” He also noted that the salaries the BIG3 provides are far beneath standard payouts from international leagues. “Overseas money is more. Way more.”

And NOW ICE CUBE here yet AGAIN..2wks before an election talm'bout the Biden admin still hasn't met with him to discuss his plan for black people.
This sh*t ain't coincidental. Him, Koonye,Killa Mike, Kodak out here tryna stomp for the Bigots..... There's a common denominator here & i aint talking music. I'm looking at these black men like the ONLY reason these self hating mf's go against the grain is for the Green. They don't give af about uplifting people or the community.

I Bet Ice Cube got Paid, he is Only Out For Himself. I Knew When He Was Sniffing Trump's Butt & Making MAGA Plans He Was FULL OF SH!T!!!!

Democrats dont care about your Black asses and neither do Republicans.....

The league has to earn revenue in order to pay people. I would go to a game if I had access to one. They're probably more affordable than the NBA and good entertainment.

He may as well work on his retirement plan. Too old to rap. There are way better Black actors out there. Trying since forever to get Last Friday made but the reality is, no one is going to pay $15-20 to see it...or at least, not enough to turn a profit. Politics went bust and now, pro athletes in their prime aren't getting paid. Yup, time to ride into the sunset.

Last Friday could be a success if they put it on Amazon or Netflix.

That Coming 2 America movie was complete garbage but that was a success somehow and i hear they are planning another 1.

Big 3 does not have athletes in their PRIME. Most of those dudes are 35. Lmaoooo

If Cube believes in his dream then he should make sure checks always clear even if the money comes from his personal pockets. His dream shouldn't be their nightmare or their financial struggle. These guys have families to feed too, and so Cube needs to be willing to take a front end loss if he hopes for a back end payoff.

He is sending the signal that he wants his dream to come true without making personal sacrifices and its going to ruin his brand because once folks believe he doesn't pay on time, they will want no parts of his organization.

Just because he is black doesn't mean the players should gladly suffer while he and his folks are living comfortably. You have to believe in your dream more than those helping you achieve it, and if you are no willing to come out of pocket, then no should be willing to suffer for you.

@kendall There's definitely a lesser evil..1 party calls blacks criminals & welfare abusers and OFFER absolutely Nothing & want to cut off SS & stop tax paying blacks from voting & remove black literature & the party just increased your mommas SSI check, crediting $10k towards student loan forgiveness. Them scales ain't balanced baby!!!
GOP EVIL demonic devils & Dems mask a lot of their bullsh*t.
There's definitely a lesser evil.
I'll wait for your rebuttal

If you start a business, have the coins to pay the ppl you claim you to want to help. Be the example. You can't speak for our black agenda, and you can't pay folks on time. No money, then sit your fat tumble weed ass down and shut the F-up.

Stomp for bigots is right!

There is most definitely a difference between Democrats and Republicans; one group has already stripped women of their right to choose an abortion, and take birth control; they ship immigrants upstate at the cost of it's states tax payers; Democrats, on the other hand, want to eliminate student loan debt (Republicans are currently blocking this initiative) , lower drug costs, expand Medicaid, federalize marijuana, lower tuition costs, and increase the federal minimum wage. There is no fcking comparison!

Please vote !! The midterms are in less than 2 weeks? Don't let these "stomping black bigots" hold your vote hostage! Your vote matters, because liberals outnumber conservatives. That's why the Senate is Republican, black folks only vote in presidential elections, they don't come out for midterms. But this year, is a crucial year for our democracy. Please, please, please, vote!!!!

I vote for Independent candidates only.

If black ppl came out during midterm elections, the way that they do for presidential ones, we would have the Senate, the House, and the Presidency. Republicans know they don't have the numbers so their best method of defense is convincing you (black & brown voters) that your vote doesn't matter and that both parties are the same; it's all rhetoric. Republicans know that if every liberal person voted, they'd never win another election ...ever.. so, Republican trolls are going to lie to you (both parties are the same; equivalent to no vote=Republican vote) and tell you this election process doesn't matter - it does - Republicans wouldn't be working this hard to block your vote if it didn't matter. Your decision to not vote (or vote independent) is a win for Republicans because the vote isn't Democrat.

Please vote!!!

Would be more fitting calling it The Big Grift instead. His buddy Trump also has a reputation for not paying his workers too and pinning the blame on everyone else and his dog when s*** hits the fan.
Ice Cube now blaming NBA and ESPN for its failures - the orange swamp monster has taught him well.

Ice Ice Maybe is KNOWN for not paying his actors and NOTORIOUS more than biggie for UNDERPAYING THEM. I would not shoot one hoop until I had my coins in full. Check this article out from last year: https://dailysoapdish.com/2021/12/ice-cube-defends-himself-as-critics-blast-him-for-underpaying-actors-who-appear-in-his-films/

I have been voting since I was eligible to vote. Our ancestors that died for our freedom require that respect.
I have never missed an election in my 67yrs of life.

We get it! You keep posting vote on every story! I personally don’t want to vote because neither side is looking out for the citizens. There is no lesser evil. There are no viable candidates to choose from. The real story is that once they get in office all of the promises they made becomes a memory. I know my ancestors fought and died for us to vote but I’m not voting on that alone. They also want us to use common sense. Biden/Harris have made a mockery of the people who voted for them. The repubs are still on that ‘I’m vetoing anything that comes across my desk’. Neither side are trustworthy.

7:36 Cube and Trump are kindred spirits - two charlatans always concocting their next big swindle.
Those Big 3 players are being taken for a ride, Ice Cube should be a cautionary tale of grandmaster level chicanery. The image he presents of black power and black elevation couldn't be further from the truth when you do a bit of digging.
I wonder how his lawsuit against a Qatari consortium is going? They apparently played him at his own game with the Big 3 league which he touts as a 'black' enterprise. Doesn't seem to mind receiving funds from autocratic regimes intent on whitewashing their image abroad.

Im not that person that has been posting to go vote, but I am responding to that posting.

Anonymous said...

8:49, omg, you are mindless and lack common sense from what you wrote. Promises become memories because people like you don’t have common sense and refuse to vote to ensure Dems have enough power in numbers to do what they promise they will. Instead people like you without common sense won’t vote, which ensures that Repubs can sit right there with enough votes and power to veto and block everything. So people like you with no common sense will then blame the Dems for their promises. UUGH!!

Grammar so terrible I stopped reading

Unknown said...

^^^

Grammar was excellent. Please vote next month. The Democrats can't pass laws unless they have the full support of Congress. When ppl don't vote in the midterms, and allow Republicans to remain in control, they block all initiatives that benefit black ppl. Like the black farmers who were supposed to receive billions in funding, Republicans blocked it. Like the student loan forgiveness programs, Republicans blocked it. Like when Biden tried to lower prescription medication costs, Republicans blocked it. Like when Biden tried to federalize marijuana, birth control, and abortion, Republicans blocked it. If you guys vote next month, guess what, Republicans get removed from their offices and we can finally get the programs and laws that over 50% of Americans want! All you have to do is show up, and be accounted for in November by VOTING!!!!

Although politics / politicians are considered ugly Hollywood, can we please get back to celebrity gossip instead of this political nonsense. Like WWoman says…”right wing, left wing, same bird.”
