LaVar Ball - the father of 2017 No. 2 overall NBA Draft pick Lonzo Ball - has never met a controversial subject he hasn't had an opinion on.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that he has an opinion on what Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James should do when he becomes a free agent next summer.

Naturally, his opinion was bold, and it should come as no surprise what he thinks King James should do for the next chapter of his Hall of Fame career.

Speaking with ClutchPoints, Ball said he thinks LeBron will team up with his son Lonzo on the Los Angeles Lakers starting in 2018:

“Let me tell you this, it would be a great fit, and LeBron is coming to L.A,” Ball told ClutchPoints. “What’s in Cleveland? You want to be a superstar, man. Superstar franchise.

“It’s going to be like this, and I’m talking about reality. He’s going to say, ‘You know what? I went to Miami. Won a championship. Brought one back to my home town. I’m the only one to go to three different places and bring a championship.’

“You do not give Lonzo Ball the best player in the game and don’t think they going to win! He is going to fall in love with Lonzo so much on the way that he play. They both understand the game. Best player in the game and you don’t think he coming? Stop it!”

LeBron and Lonzo would certainly be an interesting fit together, as both are accomplished passers and, by nearly all accounts, great teammates.

Indeed, James has been linked to the Lakers in rumors, as he owns a home in Los Angeles and has business and entertainment aspirations tied to the area.

And, perhaps the biggest sign that King James is at least considering joining the Lakers next summer is the fact that he has yet to speak out against the rumors that he'll leave the Cavs after this season.

That lack of confidence in LeBron's future in Cleveland is reportedly a big part of why star point guard Kyrie Irving demanded a trade earlier this summer - a move that hampered the Cavs' title hopes this season and beyond.

It's still too soon to say for sure what James will do next year, but it'll be tough for Laker fans to contain their excitement as LeBron-to-LA continues to gain steam.

With James and Lonzo Ball in the mix, Los Angeles would then become a premier destination for free agents in the coming years.
