NBA champion Robert Horry attended Clayton Kershaw’s Ping Pong 4 Cause charity event in Los Angeles on Monday night and joked about the Clippers’ title hopes and the possibility of LeBron James leaving the Lakers after the upcoming season.
Horry, who spent seven seasons with the Lakers, winning three of his seven rings, laughed when Fox News Digital asked who would win the championship first — the Lakers or the Clippers?

“The Clippers are never going to win a title, man. What about you?” Hari said with a smile. “I love Ty Lue. We played together and won but you know he’s just a snakebite. Until he puts me in the front office or on the coaching staff, he’s out of luck. I’m lucky for you because I’m part of the Laker family and can have the Lakers before that.”
James is under contract with the Lakers for one more season. He brought a championship to Los Angeles during the coronavirus-impacted 2019-20 season on the bubble. However, since then, the Lakers haven’t done much in terms of making an impact in the playoffs.

James and the Lakers have reportedly discussed a contract extension, with Horry believing “The King” is in LA to stay.
“LeBron’s not going anywhere. He’s got Hollywood now. He’s got movies. He’s got so many connections here. He couldn’t do that if he went to Cleveland or Miami or anywhere else,” he said. “You’ve got to stay here. He’s a Laker for the rest of his career … he’s got 13 more years to play.”
