Duke in the NBA: Lakers exercise option on Brandon Ingram

Duke in the NBA: Lakers exercise option on Brandon Ingram Los Angeles Lakers: 3 Players to watch in season opener
Shannon Reynolds | 19 October, 2018, 18:56

LeBron James began his Los Angeles Lakers era with two rim-rattling dunks on Thursday, but the 14-time all star couldn't reverse a string of losing debut games with new National Basketball Association teams. Things are definitely going to be different this season with the addition of James and other key free-agent signings.

Last night's game does show there are ways to go for the Lakers to put their stamp on the Western Conference, as they were pounded on the glass by the Blazers, as well as the 3-point line. "I liked the way we shared the ball at times, as well". "It takes a while to get to where you can close your eyes and know exactly where your guys are".

The 33-year-old signed a four-year deal with the Lakers in the summer, earning a reported $154m (£118.2m) over the term. Los Angeles shot 48.4 per cent from the field but were only seven of 30 on three-point attempts. Portland won their home opener for an NBA-record 18th straight time and extended their streak of consecutive victories over the Lakers to 16 dating back to 2013.

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.

With the Lakers, James has joined a revamped group that includes veterans Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson and Michael Beasley - as well as a young core of Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and rookie Moe Wagner. He's the best player in the world for a reason.

LeBron James collected 26 points, 12 rebounds and six assists in his first game as a Laker.

The lengthy wing had a strong preseason, averaging 17.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 25.7 minutes per game.
