Fans received their first look at LeBron James in a Lakers uniform Monday.
He posted a graphic of his 98 rating in the latest version of NBA 2k, along with a photo of himself in a Lakers jersey from the video game, on Instagram.
“Man those white uniforms ain’t so bad/fresh and that rating ain’t so bad either for such an old head!” James wrote.

James announced he was leaving the Cavaliers and signing a four-year, $154 million contract with the Lakers when free agency began July 1.
The Lakers completely rebuilt their roster after James agreed to the deal. They re-signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and added Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo as well as JaVale McGee to their roster this offseason.
James averaged 27.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per game for the Cavaliers last season. He upped those numbers to 34 points and 9.1 rebounds during Cleveland’s run to the NBA Finals, where it was swept by the Warriors.
