LeBron James is officially headed to Los Angeles to play for the Lakers, and at the moment, most NBA analysts are trying to figure out who he's going to be playing with when he gets there. James surely wants to win another title, but with the team's current roster, that doesn't look like much of a possibility.

One big question - what do the Lakers do with Lonzo Ball, who they drafted last year No. 2 overall? Ball is a point guard who needs the ball in his hands - and he doesn't shoot exceptionally well.

Oddly enough, it looks like Ball thinks he might be staying with the franchise. After hearing the news, he took to Twitter to celebrate the King's decision. Ball's tweet is going viral for two reasons - one, it's the first we've heard from him regarding LeBron's decision. Two - most people think the Lakers will probably trade Ball away before LeBron ever steps on the court for the franchise.

Check it out:

Responses, as you'd imagine, are colorful. Most are joking that Lonzo will never play a minute with LeBron - and a big part of that reason is his father's antics.

The Lakers signed Lance Stephenson late last night, and they have room to make more moves. It'll be interesting to see if they can get Kawhi Leonard, DeMarcus Cousins and some of the other big names available. It'll also be interesting to see if Ball survives all the moves the Lakers have planned.
