Coming off a disappointing 2021 season, Rob Pelinka has revamped the Los Angeles Lakers to give the city a competitive edge for the upcoming season. Amongst some of their biggest trades, the Lakers signed 18-year NBA veteran Carmelo Anthony, who had recently had two memorable seasons with the Portland Blazers. The move now sees Carmelo Anthony join forces with LeBron James and Russell Westbrook.

In their second preseason game, the Los Angeles Lakers faced last year’s Western Conference Final Champions, the Phoenix Suns. Melo stepped onto the court as a Los Angeles Lakers for the first time, immediately sparking excitement from fans across the nation. Fans have long waited for the moment to take a first peek at Melo in his new Purple and Gold uniform. His first live game as a Laker tallied eight points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists, playing for 17 minutes.

While Melo made his debut, fans have yet to see Westbrook and LeBron hit the court. James has now sat out for the second straight game for the preseason. Lakers fell to the Suns, 117-105, despite Melo’s debut.

Check out some of the fan’s reactions below.
