Ice Cube is giving a former NFL star the cold shoulder when it comes to his basketball league.

According to TMZ, Cube shut down Terrell Owens' attempt to join the rapper's hoops organization, one that is run by the players and has featured some highly-competitive game action for those who have been lucky enough to attend. Cube's only words were that the league is for "NBA players," but they were cold enough.

T.O., on the other hand, seems to be super hyped about the possibility of playing in Ice Cube's new basketball league. One can only hope that he manages to impress the rapper enough with his skills that he can find an in somehow.
