Does LeBron James want everyone to think he’s signing with the Lakers next summer? There are already plenty of people who think he’s going to head west when he becomes a free agent in July 2018, including some NBA fans who are convinced that he’s going to take his talents to Los Angeles and sign with the Lakers. And on Friday, he threw a few more logs on that fire by taking to Twitter to wish Lonzo Ball a happy 20th birthday.
Now, it’s not out of the ordinary to see LeBron wishing his famous friends happy birthday on social media. Just the other day, he posted this on Instagram for Drake’s 31st birthday.
But because there are so many people who are already convinced that LeBron is going to the Lakers, his tweet for Lonzo raised a lot of eyebrows. And there are now people who think this is definitive proof that he’s headed to L.A.
You buying it? Whatever the case, the #LeBronZo hype is clearly real.
