Soon-to-be rookie Lonzo Ball has not even played a single game yet and he is already pitching LeBron James to join the Los Angeles Lakers.
It is likely that Ball lands at the No. 2 slot with the Lakers on Thursday night even though there have been rumblings the Lakers may trade out of the two slot or may not draft Ball altogether. Regardless, Ball showed his face on Sportscenter on Wednesday to pitch James.
“Aye, man, LeBron, I like to win, I know you like to win,” Ball said. “I think our games could help each other out a lot. Any time you want the ball, just let me know. It’s gonna be there.”
It is interesting for someone who is not technically in the league yet to be making these sort of pitches. He won’t be able to do so when he signs the contract.
