Kapamilya host Gretchen Ho knew that LeBron James was going the LA Lakers all the way back in February.
When Ho was sent to LA to cover the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, she had the fortune of getting into an Uber that was being driven by a former driver of LeBron James. Said driver then tipped her off to James' future move to the City of Stars.
Check out the tweets below:
If LeBron goes to the Lakers, still don't know how Kobe fans will handle it.— Mico Halili (@micohalili) March 12, 2018
This is my #2 reason for wanting it to happen, behind LeBron vs LaVar— A.D. (@chinoyhoopsfan) March 12, 2018
So a former driver of Lebron told us that he’s coming to LA. He got acting classes, bought properties there, etc. And that Kobe will “unretire” to join him. I have a video recording, lemme check which part I got :))— Gretchen Ho (@gretchenho) March 12, 2018
if he does go to LA, I'm gonna make an article that Gretchen Ho had it first before even Woj ;)— A.D. (@chinoyhoopsfan) March 12, 2018
And here's the actual conversation she had with the driver:
(1/2) When I went to LA for the #NBAAllStar Weekend 2018, it was serendipity that we got on the Uber of Lebron’s driver in LA.— Gretchen Ho (@gretchenho) July 2, 2018
Before this recording, he tells us that LBJ is indeed headed to LA, why it’s been coming and that a “legend” will unretire to join him.

(2/2) He says Lebron has always been a fan of Kobe growing up and that Kobe made that 60-pt final game as a statement that he can still return.— Gretchen Ho (@gretchenho) July 2, 2018
The former boxer also tells us how he came to be Lebron’s driver.
Your thoughts? 🤷🏻♀️ pic.twitter.com/XYIJi75vCU
By the way, it shouldn't be a surprise that a driver would know in advance where a superstar NBA player is headed to in the offseason. After all, Paul George's barber had the inside scoop that he was staying with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
