LaVar Ball predicts multiple championships for Lakers with LeBron
LaVar Ball is predicting multiple championships for the Lakers now that LeBron James is headed to La La Land.
“I called LeBron to L.A.,” LaVar told TMZSports in Atlanta. “I knew he was coming to L.A., man! Everything lined up for me!”
Asked what that means for the NBA, he said, “Some championships for the Lakers….I hope he gets four in a row, but if not I guarantee two when all my boys is on the Lakers with him. Game over.”
But what about Boogie Cousins signing with the world champion Warriors?
“The Warriors can sign Boogie, Prince, Michael Jordan … anybody they want!” he said. “They still ain’t gonna win with this team right here — the Lakers with LeBron!
“You don’t give my son the best player in the game and don’t think he gonna win no championships!”
