LeBron James announced his arrival to the Lakers with a thunderous dunk

LeBron James didn't wait long to deliver what Los Angeles Lakers fans expect from him: the spectacular. For instance, it tipped the already lopsided balance of power between the East and West more heavily in favor of the West.

In all three debuts, James' teams have lost but it is not surprising considering they all get off to slow starts.

Second year guard Lonzo Ball echoed James's sentiments. "[Two] of the best two plays I've ever seen".

Lillard finished with a game-high 28 points as he and shooting guard CJ McCollum (21 points) ran riot for the Trail Blazers in the second half.

The Lakers seemed well on their way to their first win of the season, but fell apart in the fourth, outscored by seven points as the seasoned Blazers rode their two-point third quarter lead without letting go of it. They were also cold from the perimeter, going 7-of-30 from 3-point range. Unsurprisingly, LeBron said it's going to take a little while, and he explained why by using an oatmeal analogy. "Those are things that as we all continue to work with one another, we will get better".

Ebola Outbreak Is Worrying But Not A Global Emergency
Most of the newly confirmed cases have been in Beni, where there has sometimes been violent resistance to outbreak responders. Salama and Steffen also said that ongoing security challenges are the biggest issue facing the response efforts.

The Lakers are hoping their up-and-coming core adjusts to playing alongside James quicker than expected.

James told reporters he doesn't want to lessen his minutes and has told his coaches that he's strong enough to play full games.

When James returned to Cleveland after his first stint there, the Cavaliers opened 19-20 under David Blatt before winning 12 straight, finishing 53-29 and making the first of four straight NBA Finals. "It's not that fast", James said.

"You gotta try and get stop when the momentum is shifting".
