    Well, we're assuming that the game was to 21, and that it was only one game. Keep in mind that in street games, winner stays on the court and continues playing against new competition. He could've been keeping a running tally.

    What I find more questionable is his sexual prowess claim. First he says "I got a beep from Kim, and she can do it all night". So the aforementioned "Kim" is a person known for her sexual endurance. Yet, he then claims:
    "Felt on the big fat fanny
    Pulled out the jammy, and killed the punanny
    And my jimmy runs deep, so deep
    So deep put her butt to sleep
    Woke her up around one
    She didn't hesitate, to call Ice Cube the top gun"

    Now hold on, a woman with Kim's experience would most likely have had sexual encounters with men of all sizes and stamina. Yet Cube was able to put her to sleep?????? Come on. And why would she call him the "top gun". That is not a term that is used regularly in the hood and the reference there is really more aeronautical then sexual. We are to also believe that he accomplished this killing of her punanny even afterspending the day playing a lot of basketball, craps and dominos's. I call bullshit.

    I won;t even get into how it would be very difficult to get the Goodyear Blimp to read "Ice Cube's a Pimp"

    Kim is his wife. I used to be friends with Ice Cube's first cousin.

    Perhaps he was speaking not figuratively, but literally. Maybe his deep running jimmy and its frenetic activity actually deadened feeling in the region of her buttocks.

    I have an objection to the assumption that Ice Cube "was just fucking around" and that this state of relative relaxation is suspiciously incommensurate with the athletic achievements of which he boasts. If being "bad" is largely a good thing, is it not possible that "just fucking around" describes a state of intense concentration and maximal effort?

    If said good day actually happened, it was January 20th, 1992. The Lakers beat the Supersonics.

    For one, it's not clear that Kim is the girl who's punany Cube killed on that particular day. Kim paged him early in the day, but the later said girl of his affections was a girl he'd "been trying to fuck since twelveth grade." I think likely it's a different girl.

    I'm more concerned that, after he drops that girl off, he's driving around town, chirping the tires of his 1964 Impala and still sipping on some kind of alcoholic beverage. He even boasts that he's drunk as hell, but not throwing up. Drinking and driving - what will the children think?

    street games, at least in l.a., go to either 11, 13, or 21 (win by 2). i have never heard of a street game that went to 10 or 20. perhaps they do things differently in alaska.

    I've never heard of a game going to ten anywhere. 11 and 15 are the generally agreed upon scores. I think "win by 2" should be called at the beginning of the game, especially when there are a lot of nexts.
    Do they play 21( the game; no calls allowed first player up to 21 wins) in L.A?

    Generally only if there's no wait for the court. With people waiting, 11 is pretty standard in my experience.

    Where I'm from, you always have to win by 2 in 21.

    The other issue I have with Cube is that he wakes the girl up at one, takes her home and then proceeds to his house even though his "beeper is still blowin up", what kind of baller ends his evening at 1:30-2:00 when there are a lot of people still trying to contact you, probably for some interesting interactions. To call himself a pimp after that lackluster performance is rather boastful.

    Kim is his wife. I used to be friends with Ice Cube's first cousin.

    Which cousin? Del the Funky Homosapien?

    and while we're on the subject: Cube's mom

    apparently she cooks breakfast for him every day but almost always uses hog even though he's in the Nation of Islam [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    She never listens to him at all, Lil Cube has to go grab some cereal because she cooked the eggs AND the toast in a frying pan using the bacon grease.

    LOL....No it wasn't Del. It was a female cousin of his that you wouldn't know.

    Read recently where a guy broke down the song to find the exact day Cube was referring to in the song. I think he said it was January 20, 199X

    This is an interesting topic. Here we play 21 or 25, where the individual who reaches that score wins. Teams normally play "straight eight" where every basket (whether from 2 or 3 point range) counts as 1 point, so the team with eight made buckets wins.

    I got so excited because I thought King Solomon was suddenly analyzing Ice Cube.

    Goddamn necrobumps.
