LeBron James‘ first game with the Los Angeles Lakers set social media on fire Sunday night.
Of course, seeing James in a Lakers jersey is a sight to see in itself. But, right out the gate, the King put up several highlight-worthy moments during the team’s preseason debut against the Denver Nuggets.
In the first quarter alone, James clocked in a no-look assisted bounce pass to Brandon Ingram who went straight up for a dunk. Less than a minute later, LBJ tallied in his first points of the season with a beautiful 3-pointer following an assisted offensive rebound and pitch out from Rajon Rondo.

It was great to get back on the floor and then start a new journey for myself, James said. Hear our Lakers fans that we have in San Diego. It was a great feeling to go out there and hear the roar of the fans here.
Aside from James being the main spectacle of the night and the team losing 124-107, it’s important to point out the chemistry that he had with Ingram on the court during this game. I’m sure we all are curious to see how well this team gels overall.
