The Los Angeles Lakers are in the center of attention again. There’s a huge drama between Lonzo Ball and the team.
Lonzo Ball become part of major trade rumors, and it all started with the landing of James LeBron. Let’s not forget the issue of Kawhi Leonard.
This turned him into a player the Lakers are trying to move. The Lakers organization has a good reason to think that Ball’s camp leaked the news of a torn meniscus. What was the purpose of this? Deterring potential suitors? Let’s see what ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski thinks.
“That knee, the meniscus injury that could require surgery, I know this: The team didn’t want that information out, and I don’t believe intentionally, at least from upper management, there were a lot of teams who wanted to do trades with the Lakers or were trying to figure out if they might be in a position to, they were trying to figure out what was going on with that knee. I don’t think the Lakers wanted anyone to know, and I think there is a belief around there that that information was put out there from around Ball’s sphere to keep from getting traded, because if teams knew he was having knee surgery they’re not trading for him. I think there was concern there that he might be put in a deal,” Wojnarowski said.
Lonzo’s father, LaVar, believes that trading his son will be the worst step that the Lakers ever took. “If they wanna trade him, trade him. It’ll be the worst move they ever made. If they wanna trade him, trade him. If they don’t wanna trade him, keep him. He’s gonna do his thing. I’m not worried about no trades,” he said.
What do you think? What will happen to Lonzo Ball now that LeBron entered the game?
