One of the more intriguing of those options is the Los Angeles Lakers due to their influx of young talent. On Tuesday,A LaVar Ball appeared on FS1's "Undisputed"A with his son,A LiAngelo Ball, and was asked about the rumors of James potentially signing with the Lakers. LaVar certainly made sure he didn't mince his words as he said "I know it's going to happen."

"I dona€™t think ita€™s going to happen. I know it's going to happen. I told you to call him LA 'Bron. For him to be considered better than Jordan, I think his narrative has to be wherever hea€™s been, hea€™s won.

To justify that hea€™s the best player ever, hea€™s got to win multiple championships somewhere else.a€
