Is Los Angeles going to be big enough for LaVar Ball and LeBron James? Well, LaVar seems to think so.

In an interview with TMZ, the brash Ball didn't hold back his excitement for seeing King James in purple-and-gold. James will play alongside Lonzo Ball, barring a trade of the second-year point guard.

"I called LeBron to L.A.," LaVar told TMZ. "I knew he was coming to L.A., man! Everything lined up for me!"

As for the Golden State Warriors' signing of DeMarcus Cousins, well LaVar isn't worried. He still expects not one, not two, not three but four championships out of the Lakers with LeBron in the fold.

"The Warriors can sign Boogie, Prince, Michael Jordan ... anybody they want! They still ain't gonna win with this team right here -- the Lakers with LeBron!"

"You don't give my son the best player in the game and don't think he gonna win no championships!"

Sure, everything is fine and dandy now. But what is going to happen if Lonzo starts struggling, or if he's losing most of the minutes to Rajon Rondo, a favorite of LeBron.

LaVar might singing (screaming) a different tune then.
