Trae Young explained why he picked the Los Angeles Lakers as the favorite to win the title this season.

The star of the Atlanta Hawks made this choice primarily because of the play of LeBron James.

“For sure. ‘Bron was on a different mission. It was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. That’s why he’s the greatest in my eyes, bro,” Young said while chatting on Instagram Live with former Hawks teammate, and current Long Island Nets player, Justin Anderson.

Prior to the NBA suspension, the Lakers had the second best record in the NBA (49-14), trailing only the Milwaukee Bucks (53-12).
