If you are wondering what got All-NBA Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown to suit up in the All-Star game for the BIG3 3-on-3 basketball league in London’s O2 Arena on Saturday evening local time, so was fellow Celtics alum Brian Scalabrine, present to work the sidelines of the big event, and the White Mamba asked Brown as much. “Having some fun for charity, giving back to the community, and supporting,” offered the Cal alum in response.

“I was blown away,” said Ice Cube, standing next to Brown (h/t NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg). “I asked him if he was sure if he wanted to make this move, and he was like, ‘Yo, I want to do this for the game, for the players, and it’s a big move for the league’, so I’m excited — this guy is my hero right now.”

“It’s amazing being in this environment,” said Brown. “Shout out to London, shout out to the O2 (arena), excited to give back to charity, excited to be a part of this, and I appreciate you, Ice Cube.”

“We’re blessed to be in a position where we can give back,” replied the BIG3 co-founder. “Me being able to set the stage for the greatest athletes in the world — just call me the chef.”
