The interviewer also asked what James told Zion Williamson when both the players embraced after the Lakers vs Pelicans game. LeBron James answered that everyone will know if Zion Williamson decides to tell them. He does not do things for publicity and is glad that he is able to play with young talent.
In a recent ESPN interview, James also revealed that he feels rookie Ja Morant is a special NBA player. James further added that with the amount of talent Ja Morant has, the ‘sky’s the limit’ for the Grizzlies rookie. After the Lakers and Grizzlies game, LeBron James sent Ja Morant an autographed jersey. Ja Morant answered by sending James a signed jersey of his own.
