LeBron James is eager to bring the glory days back to the Los Angeles Lakers.
The 33-year-old joined the Lakers ahead of the 2018-19 National Basketball Association (NBA) season following his second stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the 3 x champion is now hoping to make his mark in Hollywood.
James made it clear following his first official practice with the Lakers that he is in LA to win the title.

He understands that he will have to be patient, but the NBA title is his end goal and once James puts his head to something there is no stopping him.
"I'm not a very patient guy, but I understand that I have to be patient right now," James said. "I've got to be patient with myself, too, because this is a new start for me. It's my first year in a new system.
"I know how to play the game of basketball, but this is all new to me, too. So I have to be patient with myself, not only with my teammates."
He continued: "We're here for one reason and one reason only, and that's to someday hoist the trophy.
"Obviously that's the end of the road, but you have to have those types of championship habits every day, not only on the floor, but off the floor as well."
