Now, the outspoken father of Lakers guard Lonzo Ball predicts James will help Los Angeles win at least two championships ... although he's hoping for four. The Lakers have also reportedly shown interest in signing free-agent center DeMarcus Cousins, seen by many as the best big man in the National Basketball Association.

James has studied the careers of Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, realizing that both players moved from the wing to the post as they aged.

The Lakers will be Rondo's fifth team in the last five seasons after spending the first eight-plus seasons with the Boston Celtics, which included a title in 2008 and being a four-time All-Star from 2010-13.

That could be an issue, as James is renowned as one of the greatest playmakers in National Basketball Association history, and he can't make his remarkably precise passes without the ball in his hands. In any event, his ability to play well alongside James may not matter if Ball gets traded, a possibility as the Lakers assemble a suitable supporting cast for their newest franchise icon.

Here's the reality of the situation: no matter what uniform he wears, LeBron James is going to be LeBron James, and it doesn't matter if Lonzo Ball is tagging along for the ride or not.

Star Wars: Jar Jar Binks Actor Almost Ended His Life After Backlash
Last fall, Ridley opened up to Vogueabout how the stress of Star Wars fame had a physical effect on her. However, he managed to persist throughout it all, but "it's still hard to talk about", remarked Ahmed.

"Lonzo makes everybody better, including (LeBron)", Ball said. "He's just got that special gift".

However, there is no guarantee any of them will join LeBron in the City of Angels next year.

"I called LeBron to L.A.", LaVar told us at a BBB pop-up shop at Sole Play in Atlanta.

The 26-year-old is a versatile player who can stuff the stat sheet, as evidenced by his averaging 9.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game with the Indiana Pacers last season. 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.

TMZ Sports caught up with LaVar to ask him about LeBron and what he thinks of the stacked Warriors adding DeMarcus Cousins to an already stacked line-up and he had no worries.
