Ice Cube discusses the Lakers
LA Times Blog:
"Right now, I keep Andrew Bynum," Ice Cube said. "Dwight, you have to want it, man. You have to come and want to be a part of the legacy. You got to want to have your jersey up on that wall."
For those keeping score, former Lakers James Worthy and Cedric Ceballos have also told The Times they'd prefer that the Lakers keep Bynum. Meanwhile, a certain influential ex-Laker named Magic Johnson has touted the need for Howard to come to L.A.
Ice Cube's preference for Bynum, however, hardly sounds like a ringing endorsement.
"It's really about how he wants to play and what he's playing for," Ice Cube said of Bynum. "Is he playing for the ring and the ultimate prize, or is he just running around? Sometimes they talk about Kobe not giving him the ball, but dude, you have to fight for position. You got to be in the paint fighting for position to get the ball. You can't get the ball standing around behind players waiting for the rebound to bounce."
