Well then: This sure has been an interesting beginning to LeBron James' Lakers tenure. The melee against the Rockets will cost the Lakers three games of Rajon Rondo and four of Brandon Ingram. That matters because LeBron and coach Luke Walton have preached patience with this team. They have emphasized that chemistry is going to take time; it's not "instant oatmeal," per LeBron. Two positive developments: The Lakers are currently the fastest-paced team in the NBA, and Josh Hart has been magnificent on both ends.
