Speaking at a Lakers media day on Monday, James denied rumors that his big move was motivated by his fledgling acting career - despite a multi-million dollar deal with Warner Bros Studio. Like everyone else who follows the league, James knows the team as now constructed probably isn't a title contender and is one of many teams chasing Golden State.

The 28 teams with Monday media days are scheduled to open training camp Tuesday. "We are picking up from scratch", said James.

LeBron James admitted the Los Angeles Lakers have "a long way to go" before they reach the same level as the Golden State Warriors. "We can't worry about what Golden State is doing". They've been together for a few years now.

"I think we all know this franchise has been a historical franchise in this league for years", James said. We're a new ball club trying to get better.

"It's just always humbling for me anytime I get the chance to be part of something special", James said.

He refused to comment on whether he thinks Soriano would also issue an arrest warrant against Trillanes. Trillanes is the second senator arrested after voicing criticism of Duterte's drug war.

'Listen, I'm a basketball player, ' he when asked about his acting career.

"My expectation is to get better every single day", James said. "There's only one champion, but that doesn't mean you're not successful". That's what happens when a team is new.

However, with an absence of top class centres on the Lakers' roster, James says he could fill the void.

"But if we continue to work the process, and sacrifice for each other and put in the work and the time everything will fall into place". 'I play ball. That's what I do.

James also has a starring role in upcoming blockbuster Space Jam 2 - the long awaited sequel to the 1996 Looney Tunes epic starring Michael Jordan.
