LeBron is Happy in LA again

LeBron James is pleased.

Minutes after the Los Angeles Lakers won the No. 4 pick at the 2019 NBA Draft Lottery in Chicago, the superstar tweeted one word: “Beautiful.”

The Lakers came into the lottery with the 11th-best odds to secure the No. 1 pick, and stunningly ended up with the fourth pick for the NBA draft June 20 in Brooklyn. The jump marked a significant win for a team that’s been through the ringer over the last few months.

Despite the high hopes when James joined the team last offseason, Lakers’ young core did not progress as quickly as hoped. Things got especially hairy around the trade deadline when a rumored package involving multiple Lakers players was offered to the Pelicans for disgruntled scorer Anthony Davis — a potential teammate LeBron openly lobbied for. The chase for a playoff spot disintegrated shortly thereafter, with James being shut down due to injury.
