The Los Angeles Lakers clinched a historic victory, dominating the NBA In-Season Tournament with a 123-109 win over the Indiana Pacers.
T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas hosted the tournament’s Final Four, raising anticipation for a potential NBA expansion team in the vibrant city.
Postgame, LeBron James, a vocal enthusiast for owning a Las Vegas team, was asked if his perspective changed after spending three days in the city.
“That’s not changed,” James affirmed. “My enthusiasm about being here post career, bringing a team here has not changed. The fans are amazing here. Like I said, they have everything here already – WNBA team, have a baseball team coming in soon, NFL team, hockey team, F1 was just here over the Thanksgiving week.
“Listen, everything is here. It’s a place that loves great attractions. I think the NBA will be another great addition to the city. Obviously, we see the success with Summer League and things of that nature and Aces as well. It’d be fun.”
