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

LeBron-Lakers-FTR

Late on Thursday night, LeBron stepped onto the court for his first regular-season game with the Lakers, but despite his 26 points, 12 rebounds and six assists, they lost to the Trail Blazers, 128-119.

LeBron James didn't take long to make an impression as a Los Angeles Laker.

Minutes after National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James walked off the court Thursday night following his highly anticipated debut in purple and gold, the four-time MVP shared the key ingredient necessary to resuscitate the legendary but languishing Los Angeles Lakers: Oatmeal. He explained that it's not like "instant oatmeal" and applauded his teammates' fight to get back in the game after trailing by double digits. "It's not that fast", James said after the defeat. "It takes a while to get to where you can close your eyes and know exactly where your guys are".




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.

The 33-year-old signed a four-year deal with the Lakers in the summer, earning a reported $154m (£118.2m) over the term. We ran a play late in the game as well where I turned the ball over, it was a set, we will get better with those things. "I liked the way we shared the ball at times, as well".

James opened the game with 13 points in the first quarter on the back of 5/6 from the field but was ice-cold in the second (five points) and third quarters (zero), shooting 1/5 from the field and 0/2 from three-point range.
