The Day Dwight Howard Signed With Houston Was Not A Good Day For Ice Cube

Ice Cube is hurting right now.

Ice Cube is hurting right now. Like most Laker fans, it’s safe to say that Dwight Howard’s signing with Houston on Friday was not a good day for Angelinos. Not since the Oakland Raiders left town has Ice Cube watched a sports figure take the escape route straight outta L.A.

Ice Cube doesn’t own a minority share in his favorite franchise like Jay-Z, but he does have a deep emotional investment in the Lake Show. Between performances at the King of the Mic tour, Cube ripped into Dwight Howard and even anointed him with a nickname that’s bound to catch fire in Los Angeles.

Ice also went into full Dan Gilbert-mode and promised that the Lakers would beat Dwight to a championship. It was a lot bolder when Gilbert made that proclamation in Cleveland, Ohio.

Via Hip Hop DX:

“Fu$# Dwight Howard, godda#* it,” Cube said. “We love LA! We don’t need no punk-ass muthaf***as on our team. We don’t give a fu** about a Dwight Coward. We don’t need no bitches on our team, homie. You don’t deserve to go up on that godda#* wall. So, I predict tonight Kobe [Bryant] will win another championship before Dwight Howard ever sniffs one.”
