LeBron James hasn’t been a member of the Los Angeles Lakers for very long, but some fans are already creating NBA 2K videos about what kind of future could be in store for the franchise with the King on the team.
James officially signed his four-year, $154 million deal with the Lakers last week, bringing a superstar to the team for the first time since Kobe Bryant.
Many Lakers fans are anticipating a return to the good times for the Lakers now LeBron is a member of their franchise, as the team hasn’t been to the playoffs for five straight years.
The future is certainly bright for Los Angeles over these next four years with James in their squad, but one fan has envisioned a tomorrow which many Lakers fans will get giddy about.
One fan has created and edited an NBA 2K clip featuring LeBron and his son Bronny both playing for the Lakers.
The King himself has even reacted to the video, as he said on his social media accounts: “My Goodness this just gave me chills! Man S/O whoever made this!! This is UNREAL/RIDICULOUS!! #JamesGang👑 #TheKidsFromAkron✊🏾#NBA2K19 🏀”
It would be pretty awesome to not only see LeBron and his son in the NBA at the same time, but also on the same team.
The Lakers star would likely have to defy time itself to look this dominant with his son on the same team too since LeBron James Jr. is still a couple of years away from playing in the NBA.
Kyle Kuzma even joked about it, saying he would be willing to give up his Lakers jersey number for LeBron’s son if he joined the Lakers, since Bronny is wearing number 0 in the video.
In the here and now though, the work can begin for LeBron towards bringing an NBA title to the Lakers for the first time since 2010.
James averaged 27.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per game for the Cleveland Cavaliers last season, with those numbers increasing to 34 points and 9.1 rebounds during the team’s run to the NBA Finals.
Los Angeles finished 2017-18 with a 35-47 record and missed the playoffs for a fifth straight season. The addition of LeBron, however, is a step in the right direction to change that.
