Last August, Hip Hop Icon Ice Cube was interviewed by Los Angeles Times reporter Arash Markazi, and during the interview, The BIG3 founder revealed that Los Angeles will never be a Clippers town. He also shared that the Clippers should relocate to a city like Seattle, which doesn’t have an NBA team at the moment.
“The Clippers are like your cousin who moved in and starts thinking it’s his house because he’s been there for so long,” Cube said, revealed Arash Markazi. “I really think they should move the team. We didn’t ask them to come here. I think it’s unfair to so many cities in America who don’t have a team like Seattle that we have two teams here in L.A.
“They should move because it’s never going to happen for them here. They may have a blip on the radar every now and then, but it’s never going to be their city. They should just get out and take the Chargers with them.”
The Clippers have never won an NBA championship in their 50 years of being a part of the NBA.
