Ice Cube

The Atlanta Hawks Are

DIRTY CHEATERS!

EXCLUSIVE

031813_ice_cube_launchKobe Bryant is right ... Atlanta Hawks player Dahntay Jones is a dirty cheater who knew what he was doing when he hurt the Black Mamba on the court last week ... at least according to Lakers superfan Ice Cube.

Cube -- decked out in Lakers gear -- was at LAX this weekend when we asked the rap legend about Kobe's claim that Jones cheap-shotted him during a fadeaway jumper last week ... causing Bryant to injure his ankle.

"It's kinda whack when you gotta cheat to win," Cube said ... saying, "But [Kobe's] a champ, he'll come back. That ankle will be strong."

But we didn't just talk basketball with Cube -- the rapper gave us some thoughts on the new pope ... said one thing that MIGHT be considered a diss toward the old pope. Check out the clip.

It was on purpose. I do a lot of fade-away jump shots. Just this year I was being guarded by a freshmen...he didn't know what he was doing therefore I hit a fadeaway to avoid contact. He still accidentally stepped under causing my ankle to sprain. As a NBA player you are told to go straight up. That was dirty and ref cheated Kobe out of a needed call. (I dislike but respect Kobe)
