LeBron James falls to 0-4 when joining a new National Basketball Association team

LeBron James Los Angeles Lakers

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.

Brandon Ingram was the No. 2 Overall selection in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Lakers and he isn't going any where any time soon as the Lakers have exercised their team option on the Duke Basketball product for the 2019-20 season. "I always kind of compare it to like instant oatmeal".

LeBron James' Los Angeles Lakers debut ended in defeat as the Portland Trail Blazers ran out 128-119 winners at Moda Center.

When James signed his four-year, $153 million deal with the Lakers this offseason, he knew there would be growing pains - aches James still seems to be adjusting to after playing in the NBA Finals each of the last eight seasons.

The four-time MVP's total, the second highest scored by a Lakers debutant, included 12 rebounds and six assists. Los Angeles shot 48.4 per cent from the field but were only seven of 30 on three-point attempts.

Netflix Surges With Record International Growth
The company issued revenue guidance of $4.2 billion, compared to the consensus revenue estimate of $4.23 billion. As a group, equities research analysts expect that Netflix, Inc . will post 2.67 EPS for the current year.

"Glad he's on our team", Luke Walton said.

Things are going to take some time for this Lakers team - which is not only young, but added a bunch of new pieces over the summer - to figure everything out.

This includes his first-ever regular season game in 2003 - a 106-92 loss to the Sacramento Kings, an 88-80 loss to the Boston Celtics right after his move to the Miami Heat in 2010, then another L to the New York Knicks (95-90) upon returning to Cleveland in 2014.

It's just one game, but if that trend continues, it's not a good one.
