LeBron James Hugged It Out with Tyronn Lue at NBA Summer League

LeBron James Hugged It Out with Tyronn Lue at NBA Summer League

James clearly didn't think Walton presence was an issue, and after meeting with the coach in Las Vegas on Sunday, the two seem to be on the same page. While James' absence is undoubtedly newsworthy, it is also anything but surprising, especially given his stated preference to make his first public comments since signing with the Lakers at a school opening on July 30 in his hometown of Akron. In true LBJ fashion, he rocked a backwards hat and sunglasses.

What was most noticed is that The King was wearing some Lakers shorts as he made his way to the Thomas & Mack Center, with the purple Lakers script written across the front of them.

The Lakers now have a very young but talented supporting cast around James, including the No. 2 overall draft picks in 2017 (Ball) and 2016 (Brandon Ingram), as well as Kuzma and Hart.

This summer, even without Ball or Kuzma playing and Josh Hart being the main talent, the Lakers are storming their way through the tournament.
