After suffering a huge disappointment in his first year playing alongside LeBron James, former No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball found himself being included in the trade package that the Los Angeles Lakers sent to the New Orleans Pelicans to acquire All-Star center Anthony Davis. While the Lakers are currently emerging as one of the heavy favorites to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy in the 2019-20 NBA season, most people see the Pelicans heading into an inevitable rebuild in the post-Davis era.
However, though they are currently not in good terms, Lonzo Ball’s outspoken father, LaVar Ball, still believes that the Pelicans have what it takes to remain competitive in the Western Conference next season. In an interview with TMZ Sports, Ball went as far as saying that Lonzo and the Pelicans will be winning the 2020 NBA championship title.
“They’re gonna take it all this year, for sure,” LaVar said.
