LeBron James showed off his Halloween set up on Friday night

LeBron 16 King

The four-time MVP victor scored 26 points on his first competitive start for Los Angeles on Friday but it was not enough to prevent his side losing 128-119 to the Portland Trail Blazers in their opening match of the season. "It takes some time to get that chemistry where you can just close your eyes and know exactly where guys are". "It's not like instant oatmeal".

The Lakers don't catch a break in game two, facing the Houston Rockets and James Harden.

James has now lost all four National Basketball Association debuts during his career - including his dramatic return to Cleveland in 2014 - but believes his new team just needs time.

Against Portland, James shot nine-of-16 from the field in 37 minutes of playing time.

Aside from the usual "Beat LA!" chants shouted throughout the building, some particularly inspired Blazers fans made posters tailored towards trolling LeBron James and Lonzo Ball.

"I think I'm in the situation where I need to have a good balance between work and rest because I came back from injury, because of my age, and the load I'm putting in at training", he said. I liked the way we competed at times. We can rebound a lot better, we had some turnovers, which I expected. In addition to this young core, the Lakers added Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee after getting James in free agency. James immediately hit back, weaving through defenders for another emphatic dunk to record his second basket as a new Laker. The 65-year-old Allen died on Monday from complications from Hodgkin's lymphoma.

James will certainly be looking to bounce back on Saturday and he's doing his best to stay loose in the meantime. No one anticipated the play and the ball ended up bouncing harmlessly into the stands.

Especially over the last few seasons, LeBron James' annual Halloween parties have become legend.
