The Big 3 is a highly anticipated basketball league starting up this June, in what Ice Cube calls the 'most boring time in the sports world' for a reason. 

With the constant sports media demands as they are, Ice Cube knows this inaugural season of The Big 3 has a chance to capture the attention of a nation if done correctly. He joined The Dan Patrick Show today to reiterate the reasons why you should be extremely excited for the debut of this league. It has stars, it has current athletes, and if you know anything about basketball you'll understand these guys don't just 'lose it' after retiring. 

Listen below, there is even some NWA-playing-basketball talk you won't want to miss.

You can hear The Dan Patrick Show every weekday from 9-12 noon est. on Fox Sports Radio.
