LeBron James' career as a member of the LA Lakers got off to an explosive start.
James came up with a steal, and then took the ball coast-to-coast for an emphatic slam, earning him his first points in yellow and purple.
Damian Lillard countered with a dunk of his own, but James came back with another slam, resulting in a 10-4 score in favor of LA, and a Portland timeout.
Prior to the slams, James found Brandon Ingram for a bucket, earning him his first Lakers assist.
