The Argentinian skipper has finally ended his World Cup jinx and brought the prestigious trophy to his homeland. The last time they won the golden trophy was in 1986. Just after Argentina won the trophy that year, the LA Lakers also clinched a major NBA title in 1987. However, these two historic events somehow led to the emergence of a mind-blowing theory that has startled the whole world.
Netizen decodes crazy Argentina and Los Angeles Lakers connection
A recent prediction by a fan said that the LA Lakers would win the NBA Finals in 2023. At first, this may sound absurd, but we advise you to give the man the benefit of the doubt. According to his belief, the Lakers won the NBA Finals the year after the Argentina team led by Diego Maradona won the 1986 World Cup. And now the fan believes there is a good probability the LeBron James-led Lakers will win it since Argentina, headed by Messi, won the 2022 World Cup. Although his idea may appear absurd at first, it is supported by some verifiable facts. The fan appears to have done his research well since his idea could be accurate.
Messi is LeBron James’ “type of player”
Back in 2014, Messi still didn’t have a World Cup to his name. That year, the player was still trying to win the World Cup. Hence, during the round of 16, La Albiceleste met Switzerland. It was quite a nail-biting fixture as neither side was able to score a goal in the 90 minutes, resulting in the game going into extra time.
