LOS ANGELES — Lakers fans are sky high over LeBron James. Ticket sales are up, jersey sales are up — the number of “23 James” jerseys in Staples already is shocking — and fan energy for a preseason game is way up.
That includes the massive ovation LeBron got when introduced for the first time at Staples.
The crowd has been looking for a reason to cheer all night, so when this happened the place erupted (well, for a preseason game).
How good the Lakers are this season remains to be seen, but with LeBron they are going to be entertaining.
