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

Duke in the NBA: Lakers exercise option on Brandon Ingram Los Angeles Lakers: 3 Players to watch in season opener

LeBron couldn't get the Lakers over the line against the Pacers. But still, some of Los Angeles' perceived issues popped up, particularly their lack of three-point shooting.

"They are going to have a lot of internal conflict", said Barkley, who is now an analyst for broadcaster TNT.

LeBron James speaks to the media about his debut with the Los Angeles Lakers, a 128-119 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

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.

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.

"I liked our fight to get back into the game when we were down double digits".

The Lakers' recruitment of three-time National Basketball Association champion LeBron James turned heads given how much their recent struggles contrasted to his prowess.

"I said: 'Jeanie, it's time for you to take ownership of this franchise".

LeBron James was true to nature with an efficient 9-of-14 shooting night, but failed to connect from deep (0-for-4) and coughed the ball up six times in his debut in purple and gold.

"They were thunderous", Josh Hart said.

That included four misses each from LeBron James and Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma's 1-of-7. He's the best player in the world for a reason.

He finished with 26 points, 12 rebounds and six assists from 37 minutes of game time.

He played with the Heat from 2010-2014, winning two championships there.
