Karl-Anthony Towns Makes Huge Statement On LeBron Joining L.A.
The arrival of LeBron James in Los Angeles is still a big thing, and fans are still buzzing over his new deal. Magic Johnson and Jeanie Buss landed one of the greatest basketball players, and that’s a huge success. What does Karl-Anthony Towns think about this?
Karl-Anthony Towns admits that the Lakers are happy to ink a deal with King James. He’s one of the greatest basketball stars after all. Towns had an interview with Tomer Azarly, and talked about the first thing that come to his mind after the big news broke.
“It’s great for the city of Los Angeles. For them to have one of the best players of all-time on their team, it obviously draws a lot of excitement for good reason. He’s a proven champion, proven player, one of the best of his generation and has the ability to really do something special over there in LA,” he said.
Many thought that LeBron James would stay in Cleveland for at least a year. Others believed that he’d sign a contract with the Philadelphia 76ers. But, LeBron surprised everybody with his choice. Playing in the West Coast is a challenging task, but LeBron can sure do it.
It’s time for great changes, and what’s greater than changing teams? LeBron will probably retire wearing a Lakers uniform, and that’s fine. All the great stars end up playing with the teams. His skills will push up the game of the team, and bring them higher in the list.
The Lakers have been waiting for an addition of this kind, and what’s better than landing the king of basketball? Absolutely nothing. Although the team was supposed to sign another NBA star, it seems like they’re fine with the young core and LeBron. That should do it, right? Let’s wait and see what happens this season.
