Ice Cube’s Big3 basketball league has reportedly been awarded $21 million in a defamation lawsuit against the Champions Basketball League (CBL). Big3 sued CBL back in 2017 after claims that they were defrauded because the league wouldn’t allow them to participate in both leagues. CBL had previously countered with a $250 million lawsuit against Big3, but it was eventually tossed out of court.
According to The Blast, CBL may challenge the ruling next month in court and an attorney for Big3 is already expected to file the documents needed next week.
This isn’t the first time the Big3 league has been involved in a legal altercation. They previously filed a $1.2 billion lawsuit, accusing a group of Qatari investors of defamation and contractual issues.
