Lebron James sat court side cheering his new teammates wearing Lakers shorts, purple shoes, and a watch that looked like it could put my kids through grad school.
Laker Josh Hart, used the opportunity to show off his skills, scoring 18 points and getting a team-high four assists in only 22 minutes of action. The crowd chanted MVP while Hart shot free throws in third quarter. The Lakers are young but very talented.
2nd year star Brandon Ingram 20, was also in the building and embraced James smiling as the two talked court side. Ingram who was selected 2nd overall in 2016 will surely relish the opportunity to play with someone like James who will surely not only elevate his game but also bring showtime back to LA putting spotlight back on the team.
