In a far-reaching interview with House of Highlights, Lonzo Ball — the former second overall pick of the Los Angeles Lakers — delved into numerous topics germane to his life as well as the hectic 2018-19 season that they had.
With LeBron James in the fold, everything was supposed to change in Tinseltown, but due to the worst injury of his career, James was unable to take the Lakers to the playoffs for the first time since the 2012-13 season.
Ball has also been unable to perform at the same level that he showcased in college, as injuries have hampered his effectiveness and only allowed him to play in 99 out of a potential 164 games in his two-year career.
Despite that, Ball has big plans for next season. However, before that, he said that he wants to be included in LeBron James’ upcoming sequel to Michael Jordan’s brilliant 1996 film ‘Space Jam.'

Though many scoff at its cartoonishness and Jordan’s fairly wooden acting, Space Jam is a bona fide classic. To see a good actor like James in the title role should be a joy to behold.
It has already been reported that James has had a hard time wrangling major names to star in the upcoming film, so maybe LBJ will have to fall back on his teammate Lonzo Ball instead.
