Ice Cube’s BIG3 league is reportedly suing the Champion Basketball League for defamation.
The suit comes approximately two weeks after the CBL initiated a $250 million lawsuit claiming the BIG3 stole its proprietary ideas.
The BIG3’s attorney, Mark Geragos, filed court documents alleging the CBL posted false accusations on its own website.
“The issue is that Big3 violated the agreement that players would be able to play in both leagues even though all the players had prior agreements with the Champions League,” they wrote.
The BIG3 denies any agreement between the two leagues in the from the beginning.
The BIG3 league claims the head of the CBL is “a serial con-artist, fraudster and ponzi-schemer.”
They are suing for unspecified damages.
