LaVar Ball made his thoughts about the Lakers trade for Anthony Davis featuring his son, Lonzo Ball, pretty clear while speaking to ESPN on Saturday.

The patriarch of the Big Baller Brand family believes Los Angeles made a gigantic mistake trading his son, the former No. 2 overall pick in the NBA Draft.

"I guarantee: Like I say again, it will be the worst move the Lakers ever did in their life and they will never win another championship," LaVar Ball told ESPN on Saturday. "Guarantee it.

"They're going to regret it. I'm going to have fun with it. Because I told you all, it was crashing down. Now [the Lakers] completely crashed, but at least my son got off the boat before the thing exploded. I gave them a chance. You can rewind it and go back. I said if you get the three Ball brothers, you can survive this. You let him go, oh, it's going to be a cold day in hell. Trust and believe that."

How does Lonzo feel about the trade, though?

According to The Undefeated, he and the Lakers other young players in the move - Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram - are excited for a new start.

Word is that Ball, Ingram and Hart are all excited for a fresh start in New Orleans playing with Williamson, too.

New Orleans is quite the change from Los Angeles, but Ball could thrive playing alongside Zion Williamson.
