LaVar Ball speaks out on LeBron, Lonzo

"The acquisition of LeBron James means that the Lakers are just a smidgen away from being real contenders". Fun fact: that same banner was also taken down in 2010 when James went to play for the Miami Heat.

"Lonzo's gonna get along with anybody he plays with".

There's still an outside chance that Magic Johnson and the Lakers could work out a trade with the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

So here's the news you already know: the greatest basketball player in the world, LeBron James, is joining the Los Angeles Lakers.

The elder Ball has had plenty to say about his son's career with the Lakers. James fired back by saying, "Keep my kids' name out of your mouth, keep my family out of your mouth".

This time around, James just chose to go. "It's a problem now".

LeBron James is taking his talents to Los Angeles, and Cleveland basketball fans are in an uproar. He played in all 82 regular-season games and then somehow carried a team that underwent several transformations to a fourth straight conference title and match-up against the Warriors. "He's just got that special gift", Ball said.

"Lonzo's not 6'1 or 6'2 like Kyrie [Irving]". They have added a lot of smart pieces, playoff experience wise and have young players that LeBron can rely on.

James is an American Midwest guy, and though he's leaving those roots behind in OH, he's moving to a franchise where he will play for a man he grew up respecting: Michigan-born Magic Johnson.

Lance Stephenson ( previous team- Indiana Pacers) is widely known as the LeBron antagonist but they will share the Lakers locker room next season. Plus, he's still going to have the ball in his hands for large stretches of the game. The Lakers are not only relevant again, they look like a team that can win a championship.

"If you anxious about chemistry between LeBron James and Lance Stephenson, here's reason for optimism". Because now the narrative has to be that LeBron has won everywhere that he's gone.

TMZ: Since we talking about championships... What was also endearing is that he had put together some huge performances on that stage with him putting the Cavaliers on his back nearly willing them to more titles over a highly-talented Golden State Warriors team. Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times revealed that before Stephenson reached an agreement with the Lakers, his agent first called James' camp to see if he's okay having him on the team.

A pre-sale of the James jersey began at 8:45 p.m. ET on Sunday night, less than one hour after the four-time NBA MVP announced his intention to sign with the Lakers.
