  • Luke Walton finally faces the pressure and scrutiny of being Lakers head coach

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

James says the Lakeshow will need time to fully jell.

The 33-year-old signed a four-year deal with the Lakers in the summer, earning a reported $154m (£118.2m) over the term. James' jam came just two-plus minutes into his debut with the Lakers, and the National Basketball Association marked the occasion artistically on Twitter. "It's not that fast", James said.

However, the exact details of the spacecraft, the launch date and how the artificial moon would be maintained were not revealed. There's also been some very real concern that the mirror's never-ending glow could seriously impact natural cycles of animals.

James threw down a thunderous dunk Thursday night for his first points with his new franchise.

With the Lakers, James has joined a revamped group that includes veterans Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson and Michael Beasley - as well as a young core of Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and rookie Moe Wagner.

There will be easier games to come for the Lakers, with Portland solid at home and a regular in the playoffs, and now excitement can ratchet up a notch for his home debut. "I don't think we are going to shoot 0-for-15 again".

Fan Interference Call Riles Baseball Playoffs
The score stayed that way until the top of the sixth, when Verlander allowed a double to Mitch Moreland to start the inning. But what most people wanted to talk about Thursday morning was a controversy in the first inning Wednesday night.

The Lakers giving up 128 points to the Blazers is one thing, but the amount of open looks and second chances as they gave up 14 offensive rebounds is another matter.

Lillard scored 28 points, McCollum chipped in 21 points, and Jusuf Nuric added 16 points and nine rebounds in just 17 minutes for the Trail Blazers.

"It [is] going to take patience from our team, from all of us", James said. You still got to go through some things. "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".
