LeBron James makes his debut for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight in Portland against the Trailblazers, marking the King’s first time donning the purple and gold.
After spending his entire 15-year career with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat — the last 4 years were spent in Cleveland — LeBron decided to make the move to out west to join the young, talented Los Angeles Lakers. While many speculate that LeBron’s move to the entertainment capital of the world was mainly a business decision, the Lakers are loaded with young talent that can easily make a run to the Western Conference Finals with James on board.
Asf or the Blazers, while they were the third seed in the Western Conference last year, their season ended in disappointment as they were swept by the sixth-seeded New Orleans Pelicans in the first round of the playoffs.
