LeBron James suffers loss in first game with Los Angeles Lakers

But he's not planning on slowing down as his goal is still to win a championship with Los Angeles.

When James signed his four-year, $153 million deal with the Lakers this offseason, he knew there would be growing pains - aches James still seems to be adjusting to after playing in the NBA Finals each of the last eight seasons. He added a follow-up 19 seconds later with a one-handed effort. Many are excited about the prospects for this young Laker team alongside LeBron, while some are skeptical.

"But both teams had momentum at times throughout the game and they finished it off".

"We're not going to let it influence what we're trying to do on this team", Walton said.

"I liked our fight to get back into the game when we were down double digits, I liked the way we competed at times, I liked the way we shared the ball as well", James said. [Rajon] Rondo had a couple where he drove baseline and JaVale [McGee] thought it was going to him, it was going to me, he knocked the ball out of bounds. The Lakers led by 10 early, and James' first basket in purple and gold came after he stole a pass from Jake Layman and then soared in for an uncontested breakaway power jam with 9:21 left in the first quarter. "I don't think we are going to shoot 0-for-15 again".

And James says the Lakers were unable to match Portland when it counted.

Or is it because every coach who manages LeBron James eventually ends up on the hot seat, anyway, so you might as well just start there? "Our theme is to truly believe in the idea that it's just us, just us that are in here working, just us that are getting better".

Despite James himself saying the Lakers are a long way from challenging the Golden State Warriors, fellow analyst Kenny Smith said the Lakers are in "win now" mode.
