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.

I wonder what Ice felt about the 2001 playoffs when the referees basically hand-delivered the Fakers a championship by letting them get away with a mountain of fouls.Oh, and don't forget Kobe throwin' elbows when goin for layups;or how he constantly cries to the refs without gettin' hit with a technical (like most other players) despite him bein' the #2 free throw shooter in the league-behind Lebron. Another bitch-ass Laker fan does n't know what he's talkin' about.

So the hawks are cheaters because of one player that didn't mean to hurt Kobe? Yeah okay. Now I wish he broken Kobe's ankle.
