  • So you've been on Ellen nine times.

  • Nine times, huh?

  • Do you like it better with Snoop and me?

  • You know what, it's pretty good with Snoop and--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • --my homegirl Martha.

  • You know what I mean?

  • Ellen don't worry about nothing.

  • They doing a great job--

  • Oh, OK.

  • --great job.

  • Thank you.

  • Well, you first met me on our show.

  • And when did you first meet Snoop?

  • First time I met Snoop, he was doing a release party

  • for Doggystyle on a boat--

  • On a boat.

  • --cruise, some kind of yacht.

  • When he was first starting?

  • When you first started.

  • You know, I quickly said, what's up, to Snoop,

  • got off that yacht.

  • Because I knew it was going to be lit--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • --before it left the dock.

  • I'm like, man, I'm not getting in the water with Death Row.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And so it was cool, you know?

  • It showed a lot of love.

  • You always show a lot of love.

  • It's nothing but love and respect.

  • You know, I've seen this man come a long way

  • and very proud of my man Snoop.

  • Thank you.

  • [CHEERING]

  • What's your favorite moment with Snoop?

  • Oh, man, we got a million moments.

  • You know, it's just going on tour with Snoop.

  • I love touring with Snoop.

  • You know, Snoop, he has a party backstage before he

  • hit the stage.

  • I have been experiencing that backstage.

  • Yeah.

  • I'm across the hall.

  • And I'm having fun.

  • Yeah.

  • I gave her that green-room experience.

  • Nothing wrong with that.

  • You know, I got to take her to my secret garden.

  • You know, I've always been at hers.

  • Let me take her to mine.

  • Well, to bring up a sad subject, but the last time

  • you were on Ellen, you were with Kobe.

  • Yeah.

  • What did you love about him?

  • Man, what I loved about Kobe is that he

  • wasn't just satisfied with God's given talents, you know?

  • He wanted to even be better than the talents that God gave him.

  • And so that's amazing.

  • That's an amazing person.

  • Because most people say, look, you know, I got these gifts.

  • I'm going to just kick back and just cruise.

  • And he showed you, no, you can always take it even further.

  • And when you think you're at the top,

  • you can even take it further.

  • So we love Kobe's spirit more than anything.

  • He was finding other ways to personify hisself off

  • the basketball court.

  • And being a leader, like the young generation of basketball

  • players all look up to him.

  • The young generation of rappers all look up to him.

  • Even rappers like myself, who was older than him,

  • I looked up to him.

  • Because he showed me ways on how to be a better person, a better

  • father, a better man, you know, going from that to this.

  • So he was just a great leader, a great role model.

  • And we going to miss him dearly.

  • We send love to Vanessa and the kids

  • and just want to put that love angel around them

  • and make sure they get through this time right here.

  • So you dreamed about Kobe playing in your basketball

  • league.

  • And, you know, I'm a fan of your basketball league.

  • The Big3.

  • Yes, sir.

  • Give it up for the Big3, y'all.

  • Yes.

  • [CHEERING]

  • But now, I heard you changed the name of it to the Fireball3.

  • Well, it was.

  • It's still the Big3.

  • But Fireball3 is what we play, you know.

  • Oh, OK.

  • We started off trying to professionalize three-on-three.

  • But then we realized we had invented a whole new sport.

  • So why not lean into that?

  • Like the UFC is not called super boxing.

  • No.

  • It's called the UFC.

  • [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • So we got the Big3.

  • We play Fireball3.

  • Everybody else playing basketball.

  • That's a beautiful thing, man.

  • I'm so, so proud of your league.

  • Because I seen where the idea came from

  • and how you've given these NBA players,

  • who careers are at an end, but they still able to have fun,

  • are still able to come play basketball, the sport

  • that they love.

  • And the [INAUDIBLE] is you filling them up.

  • When does the season start?

  • It start June 20th.

  • It's great.

  • Because, you know, we got new rules,

  • got what's called the bring-the-fire rule,

  • where players can go one-on-one--

  • Ooh!

  • --which is very cool.

  • And it's just been a great experience.

  • You know, we have great sponsors.

  • You know, I can't wait till the summer, man.

  • One more question, the Lakers going

  • to win it all or not this year?

  • Yes, sir.

  • [CHEERING]

  • You see me.

  • I'm ready.

  • Right.

  • We're going to do it for Kobe.

  • Right.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • On that note, when we come back, we're

  • going to see how good you are at Fireball.

  • Uh-oh.

  • Oh, boy.

  • Uh-oh.

So you've been on Ellen nine times.
