If he is able to win his fourth in Los Angeles, he will join John Salley and Robert Horry as players who won with three different teams.

LeBron James scored 26 points on his National Basketball Association debut for the LA Lakers who slipped to a 128-119 loss by the Portland Trail Blazers in their season opener.

"Um, not as fast as you guys think it's going to happen", James said when asked how long it'll take for the Lakers to develop chemistry, according to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk.

James tallied 26 points, 12 rebounds six assists on a much anticipated debut, but his team still slipped to a 128-119 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. "I always kind of compare it to like instant oatmeal". Less than 20 seconds later, James came through the lane to throw down another rim-rattling dunk. After taking an early lead, James watched the Lakers go 0-for-15 on 3-point attempts until shooting guard Josh Hart scored a three with just 2:22 left in the third.

"I liked our fight to get back into the game when we were down double digits, I liked the way we competed at times, I liked the way we shared the ball as well", James said. "Us just trying to get a feel for one another". "It's a good first test for us, to be in a building where they haven't lost [a home opener] in the 2000s".
