Blazer Fans Troll LeBron and Lonzo With Best Sign Ever

Ibrahimovic says he pulls in the crowds in the US

Ibrahimovic says he pulls in the crowds in the US

It would appear that for the first time in almost a decade, James' team isn't considered a lock to compete for a championship.

James' putback gave Los Angeles a 25-15 lead. Compare this to the Eastern Conference where eight teams finished above.500 and the eight-seeded Washington Wizards got in at 43-39, the competition has bumped up a notch for James.

But like any team as young as the Lakers are, they also had some really tough stretches.

On who pulls the crowds to sports arenas, Ibrahimovic said he draws more crowds in the United States, putting aggravations over an artificial pitch to one side for Galaxy's next game against Minnesota United. James Ennis, who has energy and can play defense, and has all kinds of energy, to Eric Gordon, who will play with Chris and James a little bit more.

The LeBron Era, meanwhile, officially began Thursday with the Lakers' first game of the regular season. Tip off is set for 10:30 p.m. ET. Only the Houston Rockets, Boston Celtics, and Golden State Warriors have better odds than Los Angeles.

LeBron James said the team needed to work on its chemistry and it would take time to develop.

William Meyers of the Vincera Institute. "There's time frames for injuries, and then time frames for an elite pass-rusher". Nick Bosa is the top prospect on ESPN's Big Board rankings and his injury is unlikely to diminish his value.

For a fairly new (and still fairly young) team, the Lakers played well in spurts.

Getty LeBron James took his talents out West. When he joined the Miami Heat in 2010, Miami struggled to a 9-8 start despite three of the league's best players. Getting off to a slow start in the West could be risky given the number of teams oozing with talent that will battle it out all year for playoff positioning. The now unemployed Nick Young seems to think he can help-at least per a tweet he sent and then deleted. "It's not that fast", he said of his new team's hopes of a title.

But that doesn't mean Walton will keep James on the bench too often.

Mike Hughes, eligible this season after transferring from Akron and sitting out past year, said he's also a fan of the game and league overall, and not necessarily any certain entity in particular. As for the playoffs?

"We kept giving up more opportunities, that's what I kept stressing to our guys", Walton added. "It takes some time to get that chemistry where you can just close your eyes and know exactly where guys are".
