Your Ball: So, what are your first impressions of Lakers?

  • Luke Walton finally faces the pressure and scrutiny of being Lakers head coach

James says the Lakeshow will need time to fully jell. "It takes a while to get to where you can close your eyes and know exactly where your guys are".

The Lakers lost the game, but James was in his usual lethal form.

James signed a four-year, $153.3 million contract with the Lakers last July, upending the NBA's landscape and transforming the recently hapless franchise into instant contenders. "It's not that fast", James said. James' jam came just two-plus minutes into his debut with the Lakers, and the National Basketball Association marked the occasion artistically on Twitter. In practice building up to Thursday's contest against Portland, Ball was scrimmaging with the second unit with the first unit consisting of Rajon Rondo, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Brandon Ingram, LeBron James and JaVale McGee. "I think that's going to create a lot of turmoil".

Unsurprisingly, LeBron said it's going to take a little while, and he explained why by using an oatmeal analogy.

Lillard (28 points) and McCollum (21 points) combined to score 20 points in the final eight minutes to lead Portland to its 16th consecutive victory over the Lakers. "He doesn't party. He doesn't do certain things before shows because he wants to be dialed [in], he wants to be focused for him to get his message across in that show and people who pay money to see him". "To just figure out one another, figure out what we are good at, figure out what we are not so good at, how we can be better at it".
