This is the definitive team of basketball. 9 championships in the city of Los Angeles plus the 6 championships when they were the Minneapolis Lakers is only one aspect of the winning legacy of this team. The Lakers have defined greatness with a roster of hall-of-fame players such as Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Wilt Chaimberlain, James Worthy, and the NBA logo himself, Jerry West. The new millennium started with 3 championships with the much heralded Shaq and Kobe dynamic duo, both future hall of famers. The team is exciting again this year with an improved bench and the solid play of young players Jordan Farmar and Andrew Bynum. GO LAKERS!
Pros: A Championship Tradition
Cons: :Too many distractions in the off season due to #24, John Buss is an idiot
