The King stopped by the Thomas & Mack Center on Sunday to watch his new team earn a spot in the semifinals of the Summer League. A lot happened when LeBron showed up just minutes before tipoff and we've categorized the good from the bad moments.
The Good – standing ovation
When LeBron emerged from the tunnel, the crowd went wild to greet him in his first public appearance as a Laker. But then again, most of them might be bandwagoners.
The Bad – The retro Lakers shorts
LeBron has always had a strong fashion sense
The Good – Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart Dap
Moments after LeBron James was seated, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart individually walked over to where LeBron was sitting courtside to give him their welcome greets.
The Bad – Those purple sneaks
What are those?! Purple shoes have a unique appeal, which is why you have to be very careful when using them as part of your look. LeBron, however, feels like he just put it on to complete his tribute ensemble for his new team.

This lucky fan got the chance to take a half-court shot and nailed it. He gets a nod and a point from King James for his trouble.
