LeBron James announced his arrival to the Lakers with a thunderous dunk

LeBron 16 King

LeBron got things started quickly with 18 of his team-high 26 points coming in the first-half, including a pair of tomahawk slams for his first Lakers buckets, but had a weird second half where he seemed passive and deferred to his teammates.

Despite James himself saying the Lakers are a long way from challenging the Golden State Warriors, fellow analyst Kenny Smith said the Lakers are in "win now" mode.

The LeBron James-led Los Angeles Lakers will face the tough task of deciding whether to contend for a title this season or give their young core the on-court experience they need to develop as players, NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley said on Thursday. The Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Lakers 128-119, extending their winning streak over the Lakers to 16 games. This was also the 18th consecutive home opener Portland has won, which is the longest streak in National Basketball Association history.

The LeBron James era in Los Angeles is officially underway. Throughout James' career when he took his talents to another franchise it takes time for things to work itself out...


I can't lie... I tend to love LeBron James' quotes sometimes... How about that team chemistry?

Ball is will also be on a minutes restriction for the night, Luke Walton said during the morning shootaround. "I always kind of compare it to like instant oatmeal". It is not that fast.

Okay Lakers fans, let's remember these words because yes it will be a challenge and chemistry tends to take time.
