LeBron James loses in LA Lakers debut despite sensational start

Ibrahimovic says he pulls in the crowds in the US

"It's not that fast", James said after the defeat.

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. "I always kind of compare it to like instant oatmeal".

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 ESPN.com.

The LeBron James-led Los Angeles Lakers will face the tough task of deciding whether to contend for a title this season or give their young core the on-court experience they need to develop as players, NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley said on Thursday.

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. After five years of rebuilding through the NBA Draft, the Lakers changed the landscape when they signed James to a four-year, $154 million contract.
