LaVar Ball: ‘LeBron James Is Coming To The Lakers’


In the same interview in which he told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman that Luke Walton has lost the Lakers, LaVar Ball also expressed his confidence regarding LeBron James free agency decision this coming summer. The father of the teams franchise point guard says that he knows James is coming to LA and states that he would be a fool not to. LaVar feels that if you put Lonzo and LeBron together and add in LiAngelo, that’s a recipe for an NBA Championship team. However, Ball also added in that even if the Lakers get a LeBron or Paul George, Luke Walton won’t be able to coach them. Via ESPN:

“LeBron’s coming to L.A. I know he’s coming to L.A.,” Ball said. “LeBron is not a fool. What’s the only way he can beat Jordan? You can’t get more championships. Only one way, to say every team I’ve gone to I’ve won a championship. Go to Lakers and win a championship, then you’re better than Jordan.

“You can’t give my son the best player in the league, and don’t expect them not to win. Get rid of everybody. Give him LeBron and Gelo [LiAngelo Ball]. You got a 2 and a 3. And it’s a win. It’s a wrap. Then all you need are two rebounders — [Julius] Randle and [Larry] Nance Jr.”

But even with James, Ball doesn’t feel that Walton is the right man to lead the Lakers to a title.

“Even if you bring in a LeBron or a [Paul] George, he can’t coach them guys,” he said. “What is he gonna tell them? He’s too young. He has no control.”
