LaVar Ball believes that if his son Lonzo had more playing time with LeBron James, he would still be with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Lonzo Ball joined the New Orleans Pelicans last summer, as part of the deal that sent Anthony Davis to the Lakers.

“If he would have played with LeBron and they let him play with LeBron, he would have still been there. They did that one and both got a triple-double. Luke (Walton) said ‘Too much success. Leave that alone. We won’t do that again,'” LaVar Ball said on Complex’s Load Management podcast, via Jacob Rude of USA TODAY Sports.
