History Of LeBron James' Debuts For Cavaliers (2003, 2014) And Heat (2010)

LeBron James made his debut on the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, Oct. 19, 2018.

It was the first time James played within the competitive Western Conference, and called for patience as his new teammates learn to play together.

"It's not instant oatmeal. It's not that fast", James said. "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.

LeBron James finished the game with 26 points and 12 rebounds. It's just the first game.

His game was not flawless, however, as James went 0-4 on three-pointers and notched six turnovers. 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.

But it was not enough to prevent the Lakers losing to Portland for the 16th successive meeting as Damian Lillard led the way for the hosts with 28 points.

With this loss LeBron James has now gone 0-4 playing the first game for his new teams...but in the National Basketball Association this will not be an easy hill to climb according to LeBron via

Ball is will also be on a minutes restriction for the night, Luke Walton said during the morning shootaround. "To just figure out one another, figure out what we are good at, figure out what we are not so good at, how we can be better at it".

The Lakers face the Houston Rockets on Saturday, live on Sky Sports Action, when the Staples Center will be packed to the rafters.
