After two games, the Los Angeles Lakers have yet to register their first win of the preseason. But that's the keyword: preseason. 


A team that has so many new guys playing together for the first time will certainly need some time to click. If we look back to LeBron's first year in Miami, the Heat started out 9-8 before finally turning it up to finish with a 54-28 record that eventually led to an NBA Finals appearance. 

LeBron has looked great in limited minutes through each of the first two preseason games -- both against the Denver Nuggets. Last night's stat line finished at 13 points, three assists, three rebounds, two steals, and a block over 15 minutes -- the amount of time he's played in each game.

There was one minor blip on the radar for LeBron last night, however. He did have four turnovers in those 15 minutes, but that can be cleaned up as he becomes more familiar with his younger and inexperienced teammates. 


If we're looking for a flawless Lakers performance during the preseason, we might not want to hold our collective breaths. But don't fret folks. Everything should be rolling along smoothly by the time we reach Christmas.
