West Coast rap veteran Ice Cube has shared his thoughts on NBA superstar LeBron James recently leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers and joining Dwayne Wade on the Miami Heat.
Writing in a blog post, Cube said his hometown Los Angeles Lakers are too dominant for James and company.
"Kurupt is one of my favorite MC's. He's got complicated metaphors that's still gangsta," Cube wrote on Thursday (July 15). "15 minutes after he left the room in came Snoop. We talked about the Lakers kickin' the Celtics a** in the Finals. We laughed about LeBron joining The Heat. It won't work, Lakers are still the team to beat." (Ice Cube's Blog)
LeBron James made his long-awaited decision to join the Heat last week.
In the here and now, LeBron James probably did the best thing for himself. By joining Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami to form an NBA superpower squad, James, who announced Thursday night that he was bolting Cleveland via free agency, will more than likely win a championship -- or two or three -- sooner rather than later. And ultimately, that's what James so desperately wants after seven "failed" seasons with the Cavaliers. (ESPN)
This decision sparked excitement from Miami's Rick Ross.
"Miami the spotlight of the world!!!!"
"Courtside seats went up 30stacks in 30mins!!!!!got 5 anyway!!!!" (Rick Ross' Twitter)
Miami production duo Cool & Dre said they predicted James' destination would be with the Heat.
"can i get some props for predicting Bron coming to Miami for thepast couple months. i dnt wanna start going back to my old tweets."
"u know what i'ma do, i think i'm gonna retweet some of your old replies...there were some that was airing me out saying i was krazy." (Cool & Dre's Twitter)
