    Lakers open in Portland, with the home opener vs the Rockets.

    I really think the Lakers are going to Limit Lebrons Numbers during the season and have him control the 4th. Get him much lower minutes with so many young kids on the team. Until the playoffs roll around and i expect a smaller rotation.

    Yeah, ideally they'll play him a little more early in the season to get everyone on the same page and used to each other. Then scale back his minutes and have him sit out a game here and there.

    Then start playing him a little more later in the season going into the playoffs.

    Apparently Mr. James has added muscle in his return as a Laker.

    Cant wait to see Defenses have to cheat on Lebron and he slings it to a wide open Kuz or Ingram. Its gonna be sweet. Or, Lonzo can take wide open 3's for a change, something hes good at.

    YEa, looks like Luke is going to play James at Center during the course of games. The Lakers version of the Dubs "smallball"!
