Ice Cube’s BIG3 Basketball League is reportedly suing the Champion Basketball League (CBL) for defamation. The suit comes roughly two weeks after the CBL filed a $250 million lawsuit alleging BIG3 of stole their proprietary ideas.
BIG3’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, filed court documents claiming CBL posted false accusations on its 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.
BIG3 denies there was an agreement between the two leagues in the first place.
The BIG3 league says the head of the CBL is “a serial con-artist, fraudster and ponzi-schemer.”
It’s suing for unspecified damages.
