LeBron James, Lonzo Ball take the floor together for first time

Lonzo Ball made his preseason debut in the Los Angeles Lakers 123-113 win over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday and given the unique circumstances, he did well for himself during his time on the floor.

He still has a little ways to go before he's 100 percent, but head coach Luke Walton liked what he saw from Ball. "As he has said, there are a lot of reasons he joined the Lakers, including family and a number of basketball specific reasons, but team culture is as important to LeBron as talent". We were taking the ball out, it didn't matter who it was getting thrown ahead to, we were attacking the rim and putting pressure on their defense. "My favorite part of the first half was the pace we played with". Obviously fans of the Los Angeles Lakers are dying to watch him play for their franchise.

It was early February 2017 - 15 months before Kobe Bryant would text her that meme of the Game of Thrones' queen, Daenerys Targaryen, as both an inside joke and a congratulations for landing the game's greatest player - and the Lakers heiress was finally facing the decision that had been looming large for years. "Preseason game versus finals game, it's exactly the same", James said, apparently not seriously, as noted by Tania Ganguli in an article posted on the LA Times website. "We have a lot of risky weapons that can attack the rim".

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led L.A. with 17 points, while Kyle Kuzma, Lance Stephenson, and Brandon Ingram all added at least eight as well. They play the Warriors again on Saturday. Now they're addicted and will only want more.
