    LeBron on the Lakers is fun to watch, they won't win a lot of games and be a 6-7 at best but still fun to watch. That sequence with the LeBron dunk-Dame dunk- LeBron dunk was super entertaining.

    All they need is a second star. All they have right now is a bunch of washed up players and unproven rookies. PG should have signed with the Lakers. Not sure why he wanted to play with Westbrook instead of Lebron

    Dun think that is much better. Portland being 3rd or 4th in the regular season but still failing in the playoffs almost every year.

    yeah...very entertaining team, I loved watching last night’s game

    Lakers had 34 fastbreak points and 70 points in the paint...they’re so dangerous in transition

    Gotta, say, I did enjoy watching LeBron on the Lakers last nite. It will be interesting to see how the team shapes out over time.

    they desperately need some more shooting, and I do think they’ll get a 2nd star...after that, watch out

    they’ll probably be the non-Rockets team I watch the most this year

    fun team to watch but I don't think they can sustain playing their version of small ball for as much as they do. and they need more shooting badly. consistent primarily instead of streaky like they have now

    Yeah, there is no doubt.

    1) Need 2nd star (maybe Ingram becomes that)
    2) Need more shooting (more minutes for Hart obviously)
    3) Need a defensive C.

    They have work to do, but from an entertainment perspective they are intriguing.

    There is actually a possibility that Lakers just miss the playoffs in this very competitive Western Conference. If that happens, Lebron's legacy could take a nonrecoverable hit.

    Their crunch time offense is garbage. They try to run the Lebron offense but it doesn't work well spacing wise with Rondo out there.

    With the home sputtering out of the gate, I cant put great confidence in being able to root for them much this year. Things could change, but until then, I really cant root for other teams. But, there are always those teams that I am happy to root against. Lebron's Lakers are very high on that list.

    I hope that Barkley on the TNT was right this time. The Lakers are just not very good ever although Smith and Shaq thought so.
