Folks are still talking about the first full weekend in 2017. Some Hollywood A-listers did it up from coast to coast. There was the big bash with the Obamas in D.C. and the big splash at the Golden Globes. In between it all, Ice Cube said he wants to start a pro league while Tracee Ellis Ross makes a confession.

In her Globes speech she said for Black-ish “It is an honor to be on this show..and to show the magic and the beauty and the sameness of a story and stories that are outside of where the industry usually looks.” Cube & Ross have a new year’s gameplan ‘start now:’ take your swag out the bag and head out the sand.

Ross was excited as a first-timer at the Golden Globes, first time nominated and attended. She won Best Actress in a Television Series Comedy. The last time that happened for a ‘sista’ was with Debbie Allen in 1983. So ‘last time’ doesn’t always mean last ever and ‘never before’ doesn’t always mean not possible.

So Cube’s excited about a 3-on-3 pro basketball league. According to USA Today he said “I started to look at three-on-three basketball and wondered, ‘Why isn’t this played on a pro level?’” That’s how ideas start. Plus, when you look for oil under the sand you might strike gold or for gold below the rocks find oil.

He also said “It’s the most normal form of basketball. And from there it was like, ‘Yo, why don’t we make this happen?’” This is major and he hopes to have it up-and-running by June. So for 2017 Ross tells folks no more drama or same ol’ mistakes as a ‘Stargirl.’ Cube tells folks no more half-stepping as a ‘Starboy.’

Folk still are a talking. First full weekend of ‘17 rocking. Hollywood A-listers did it up. From coast to coast non-stop. The Obamas D.C. big bash. Then the Golden Globes a big splash. In between Ice Cube made news. With idea he done fuse. For pro-league snack concessions. While Tracee Ellis makes confessions.

In Globes speech she made clear. Award makes for a great year. Proud to be on Black-ish show. Where magic and cultural beauty flow. Sameness in a story told. Greatness in stories bold. Outside of where industry looks. For padding revenue books. A gameplan to go ‘start now.’ What it takes to bring your wow.

Ross excited as first-timer. Among others she’s a Hot Stepper. First time to be nominated. Just as well as attended. Won Best Actress in TV Comedy nod. Under her breath it was like ‘Thank God.’ Last time Debbie Allen took the spot. Was when a sista had the lot. ‘Never before’ or ‘last time’ doesn’t mean a dot.

So Cube’s forming anew. 3-on-3 pro league about due. Looked around and wondered why. Then started aiming for the sky. That’s how ideas get started. Then sweetened and biz-coated. When looking for oil under sand. It’s all a stroke of the hand. Looking for gold below the rocks. It’s how you up your stocks.

Cube thinks it’s just normal stuff. Getting it going might be tough. Wants to make it happen then. Counting backwards from a ten. May be up-and-running by June. Hopes that’s not a bit too soon. So for 2017 Ross shares some heart. While Cube wants no more half-stepping start. To play your ‘Starboy, Stargirl’ part.
