  • LeBron James: Team chemistry not “like instant oatmeal. It is not that fast.”

    First, Portland is a superb team led by two All-Stars that is always tough at home. Second, the shooting woes the Lakers had were too be expected when we looked at the roster, and while it’s going to be a lingering problem all season they will have better nights than 7-of-30 from three and 0-of-7 from the corners. “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.

  • LeBron offers food for thought after losing Lakers debut

    LeBron James offered food for thought after his Los Angeles Lakers debut ended in a defeat to the Portland Trail Blazers, warning it will take time for them to serve up "instant oatmeal". James scored 26 points, claimed 12 rebounds and provided six assists but sloppy defending and the Blazers' superior three-point shooting cost the Lakers. The four-time MVP's points tally was the joint-second best on debut for the team, just one short of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record.
