LeBron James joined the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this summer, and he’s excited to take the court with his new teammates. You know, Lonzo Ball, Rajon Rondo and the rest of the guys. He was part of the Cleveland family for too long, and many thought that LeBron won’t be able to cope with the change and the big city.
However, LeBron has no problem playing with the Los Angeles Lakers. LeBron had his first practice with the team, and they worked really well together. This practice was one of the hottest topic these days, and each of the teammates made comments on LeBron, including Lonzo Ball.
Ball grew up idolizing King James, and he had the opportunity to take the same court with his favorite star from the childhood. So, reporters wanted to know if Ball was nervous about sharing the court with LeBron James for the first time.
Ball is confident player and he didn’t win all those games by being nervous. “Nah, I’m never nervous to play with nobody. He’s just another person at the end of the day. He not God,” Ball commented.
This is comment triggered an avalanche of comments, and many were upset about the question Ball got. Others were disappointed by his answer.
Ball wasn’t trying to disparage LeBron’s talent. He was just trying to tell everyone that he is never nervous on the basketball court. LeBron James may be the king of basketball, but he’s always friends with his teammates. He’s just a normal person, and Ball was referring to that. No hard feelings, no nothing.
Maybe reporters should’ve asked a different question. sometimes it takes a special skill to talk to a professional athlete. Remember how they asked LeBron about his plans for earning Lakers’ fans trust? It was hilarious. He even laughed at the question.
