Lakers news: LaVar Ball believes LeBron James is ‘coming to Los Angeles’
LaVar Ball and his family have officially been given their own reality show. Ball in the Family will air new episodes on Sundays starting on Sept. 10 while the first two episodes are already available on Facebook’s Watch.
LaVar spoke with ClutchPoints this week to talk about the family’s new show on Facebook along with a few other few other topics including LeBron James potentially coming to the Los Angeles Lakers next year and whether he’d be a good fit playing alongside his son, Lonzo Ball.
“Let me tell you this, it would be a great fit, and LeBron is coming to L.A,” LaVar told ClutchPoints. “What’s in Cleveland? You want to be a superstar, man. Superstar franchise.
“It’s going to be like this, and I’m talking about reality. He’s going to say, ‘You know what? I went to Miami. Won a championship. Brought one back to my home town. I’m the only one to go to three different places and bring a championship.’
“You do not give Lonzo Ball the best player in the game and don’t think they going to win! He is going to fall in love with Lonzo so much on the way that he play. They both understand the game. Best player in the game and you don’t think he coming? Stop it!”
LeBron will become an unrestricted free agent next summer with rumors swirling about his desire to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and possibly sign with the Lakers. James, however, has yet to address the seemingly endless speculation even if it were to simply squash the rumors about the possibility of heading to Los Angeles.
As for the Lakers, Magic Johnson and company are trying to reload the roster while building around Ball and Brandon Ingram. So far, the team’s front office has made moves to clear cap space in an effort to bring in a superstar or potentially two of them next summer.
Only time will tell if the Lakers brass can lure in LeBron, but LaVar definitely seems confident Lonzo will be playing alongside him next year in Los Angeles.
