LeBron James’ move to Los Angeles has brought new life to the Lakers, who had previously lacked that “star power” he brings. Once person who was happy about he move was Lonzo Ball who “looked up to” LeBron his “whole life.” Ball has since stated that he does not feel pressure with having a superstar in the team, it somehow takes pressure off of him instead.
“I would say it takes pressure off of me and the rest of the young guys,” Lonzo told the publication. “Obviously you have LeBron, the best player in the world, all the attention is on him. A lot of the wins and losses are targeted towards him. I know he’s dealt with that his whole career so he’s fine with it. But myself, it’s taken the spotlight off a little bit, just making things a little easier for me.” He said.
Laker fans can only hope the two can help bring a championship to the city.
