LeBron James hints at where his family stands in LA's budding El Trafico rivalry
It hasn't taken LeBron James very long to acclimate to life in Los Angeles, whether it be fully embracing the beautiful weather or the Hollywood lifestyle. In his latest Instagram post, the new LA Laker star made the latest transition to LA life: picking between LAFC and the LA Galaxy.
LeBron dropped a major hint to which side of the fence he and his family stand in terms of LA's budding soccer rivalry "El Trafico". With the two clubs set to face off this Friday as part of MLS Rivalry Week, James posted a picture of his three children -- "Bronny", Bryce Maximus and Zhouri -- wearing LAFC jerseys with "James" across the backs. LeBron didn't make any mention of LAFC in the post, instead referencing hip hop trio Migos, but the jerseys seem to show the James family is firmly with the Black and Gold.
LeBron is no stranger to soccer himself, owning a two percent stake in English Premier League giants Liverpool and earlier this summer showing support for the USMNT and star Christian Pulisic, by donning a "Pulisic" USA jersey over Fourth of July Weekend. It makes sense to a point that the James' would side with LAFC, as with James new to LA, it is only natural he would gravitate to a team that is also new on the LA scene.
Will LeBron make it out to Banc of California Stadium this season to take in a game? We wouldn't put it past him. Either way, LAFC looks to have picked up some more high-profile supporters in its inaugural season.
