Incredible LeBron James photo in Lakers practice facility
It’s still sinking in that LeBron James is joining one of the most prestigious organizations in all of professional sports. King James took to Instagram to post an insane picture of himself in a Lakers practice facility.
It’s a shot of James from behind, but the iconic World Champions banners from previous Lakers teams hang above the “Chosen 1” as he hopes to raise some of his own banners in Los Angeles.
Not to be overlooked, James is in the gym with Josh Hart and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, two promising young players who will don the purple and gold this upcoming season.
The regular season creeps closer every day. James and his teammates will finally get to take the court together on Oct. 18 in Portland. It will be interesting to see how James develops chemistry on this diverse roster. Of course, James is the centerpiece of the team, but after him, there is a mix of young and veteran players.
The young corps consists of Hart, Mykhailiuk, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Moritz Wagner. These players can all learn a lot from playing with LeBron, but the other veterans on the team shouldn’t be overlooked.
Rajon Rondo is one of the most intelligent basketball players in the game, and his style of play is certainly something Lonzo Ball can learn from. Lance Stephenson and Michael Beasley have both experienced drastic high and low points in their careers. JaVale McGee brings championship experience from Golden State.
The Lakers are back and LeBron’s goal is to raise another banner in LA. He has the young talent and veteran pieces to make things interesting at the least.
