The NBA season is now underway, which means it’ll be a year full of epic drama, crazy buzzer beaters… and Lebron James looking friggin majestic in a Lakers jersey.
The King officially made his royal debut against the Portland Trail Blazers earlier this afternoon, and while he was god-like as usual, it was his first basket as a Laker – and how he earned it – that sent fans into a frenzy.
He basically just tore through that rim
That signature tomahawk never gets old.
LeBron’s first two buckets with the Lakers are dunks!
