With the Big3 coming to Staples Center, Ice Cube disses Clippers and Chargers

With the Big3 coming to Staples Center, Ice Cube disses Clippers and Chargers When the Big3 championship game takes place Sunday at Staples Center, Ice Cube, the co-founder of the three-on-three basketball league, will do what he normally does whenever he walks into the arena. He will take a moment to look up at the Lakers' championship banners and retired jerseys and smile. While the Lakers are once again championship contenders this season, they could have been prohibitive favorites if they had signed Kawhi Leonard this summer. Leonard, like Paul George last year, spurned the Lakers and now both Los Angeles natives are on the Clippers, making them a popular championship pick for the first time in franchise history.

But lately, Howard has found inspiration in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most notorious villain … Thanos.

In a tour of his $8.8 million Atlanta mansion with Graham Bensinger, Howard was showing off his cars when they arrived at a purple Rolls Royce. Howard said that he chose to make the car purple as a nod to Avengers villain Thanos, and his reason for that was, uh, something.

Howard said about Thanos:

"He was able to understand that, in order for him to complete his mission, he had to get rid of his emotions. And that's hardest thing that we all we face."

That mission, of course, was a mass genocide (albeit fictional) of 50 percent of the universe's life. But yeah, Howard commended Thanos' emotional fortitude in the carrying out of that genocide. Those sacrifices included throwing his daughter off a cliff.

NBA fans predictably had plenty of reaction to Howard's comments.

The jokes were … inevitable.
