Takeaways from loss to Trail Blazers

Michael Beasley Josh Hart

LeBron James played a typical LeBron James game (more on that later) scoring 26 points, grabbing 12 rebounds and dishing out six assists.

And we also caught up with Doc Rivers, head coach of the Lakers' city rivals, the Los Angeles Clippers, for his thoughts on LeBron's arrival.

Three-time National Basketball Association champion James scored 26 points - the second most by a Lakers debutant - in his first regular season game since leaving hometown team the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time in the summer.

"Every step along the path is always different and challenging in its own right", James said of starting a new season with a new franchise. "It takes some time to get that chemistry where you can just close your eyes and know exactly where guys are".

The four-time MVP wasted little time in whipping his fans into an early frenzy with back-to-back tomahawk dunks - a fitting way to record his first points for the Lakers.

The 33-year-old signed a four-year deal with the Lakers in the summer, earning a reported $154m (£118.2m) over the term.

The Los Angeles Lakers' box score from their loss to the Portland Trail Blazers includes an eyesore: just 7-for-30 from distance.

LeBron James didn't take long to make an impression as a Los Angeles Laker.

Damian Lillard and C. J. McCollum shone for Portland with 28 and 21 points respectively.

In this new era, though, some things remained familiar. "Those are things that as we all continue to work with one another, we will get better".

There's still a long way to go before we can compare the "Meme Team" to the classic Showtime Lakers, but if James has anything to say about it, the Lakers will be heard from this season.
