LeBron James: Lakers' Team Chemistry Not Like "Instant Oatmeal"

LeBron James: Lakers' Team Chemistry Not Like

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.

"It's not instant oatmeal".

"Um, not as fast as you guys think it's going to happen", James said when asked how long it will take for the Lakers' chemistry to develop. But still, some of Los Angeles' perceived issues popped up, particularly their lack of three-point shooting. You took over a team that had won just 17 games before you got here and coached it to 27 wins in your first season, 35 in your second.

LeBron and co. will return to the court on Friday night for their home opener against the Houston Rockets.

James opted out of his contract with Cleveland in the offseason and agreed to a four-year deal worth $154 million with the Lakers. I liked the way we competed at times.

The Lakers' recruitment of three-time National Basketball Association champion LeBron James turned heads given how much their recent struggles contrasted to his prowess. "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". James immediately hit back, weaving through defenders for another emphatic dunk to record his second basket as a new Laker.

"We wanted to come out and start the season right and to honor our owner, Mr. Paul Allen".

Last night's game does show there are ways to go for the Lakers to put their stamp on the Western Conference, as they were pounded on the glass by the Blazers, as well as the 3-point line.
