LeBron James and the Lakers finally pulled it all together on Tuessday night. The Crypto.com arena played host to what King James was hoping will be his team’s coming out party. Lebron’s performance reflected that he was going into a new gear at the season’s quarter post.

The Lakers have been mediocre at best throughout the season. They came into the game with a .500 record. The team has lacked chemistry and rumors have been swirling that change is coming. That is not indicative of the excellence that LeBron James expects from his team.

James put the Lakers on his shoulders last night and willed them to victory. It was a game that they should have won against a less talented opponent. LeBron made sure of it, dropping 31 points and flexing in front of the Kings bench to let him know he was in charge.

LeBron continued his trash talk after the game. James took to Instagram to send one more message to the Kings and to any fan who might doubt him. The real king lives in Los Angeles, not Sacramento.


The Lakers improved to 20-19 with the win. They have another struggling opponent coming up on Friday night in the Atlanta Hawks. LeBron James and company will be out to continue proving that they can live up to the hype.

Are LeBron James and the Lakers ready to make a run? Let us know in the comments!
