In L.A., LeBron James preaches patience, hard work

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

"It's not that fast".

So, regardless of how excited you may be for college basketball season, take it from the guys that actually play - they can't wait, either. "So that's what we're going to work toward".

It is going to be important for the Lakers to establish themselves in the West early on and winning games against playoff teams from last season to help give their young core confidence as the 82-game season rolls on.

"But you don't get a pass for not practicing excellence every day", he said, "and trying to be great every day". I liked the way we shared the ball as well.

"We talked about it and those things will get better".

The Showtime Lakers are back with LeBron James making a move to Los Angeles, or at least that is what Lakers fans are hoping.

Manny Machado Fined Undisclosed Amount for Jesus Aguilar Incident
Yelich said if a play like that happened one time from Machado it might be considered an accident, but he sees it as a pattern. The shortstop later scored the winning run, sliding home to give Los Angeles a 2-1 win that evened the NLCS at two games each.

Stephen A. also describes what the Blazers did so well in the victory and how if the Lakers are going to take a lot of 3-pointers, they need to make more of them.

But Portland were solid down the stretch behind their All-Star back-court of Damian Lillard (28 points) and C.J. McCollum (21 points). "It was a good first test for us to be in a building where [the Blazers] haven't lost a home opener since 2000".

The Lakers, with James on the sideline due to three fouls, battled back to tie the game at 61-61 late in the second quarter. Even though LeBron James excels in the half court and has never finished the season on a Top 10 pace team, Walton and his staff know how devastating LeBron is in transition and think they have the kind of athletes to support him.

James reached half-time with 18 points but Portland led 65-63 as the hosts were more accurate with their three-point attempts. Toward the end of the fourth quarter, as the game began to look safely in the Blazers' hands, chants of "Beat LA!" rose up in the crowd.

In Thursday's first Eastern Conference match, Philadelphia 76ers defeated Chicago Bulls 127-108 to grab their first win of the season at home.

That narrative was fed opening night when Anthony Davis did whatever he wanted on his way to 32 points, Elfird Payton (yes, Elfrid Payton) put up a triple-double, and the Pelicans scored at a 124.8 points per 100 pace in blowing the Rockets out.
