The new-look Los Angeles Lakers and their latest Hollywood star will be on national television more than any other NBA club in the 2018-19 season.

In fact, more than half of the games LeBron James and the Lakers play will be on the air -- 43 of them to be exact. That's even more than the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors, who are scheduled to appear on TV 40 times.

They are followed by Boston, Philadelphia and Houston, each with 39 games on the docket. Oklahoma City will play on national TV 36 times, with every other team set for 29 appearances or fewer.

How about James' former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers? They have the fewest scheduled appearances.

Last season, according to Cleveland.com, the Cavaliers were on national TV 39 times during the 2017-18 schedule. This season, they'll be shown just seven times:

twice on ESPN, five times on NBA TV and none on TNT.
