The Greatest Team to ever play the game. From West, Baylor, and Wilt to Magic, Kareem and Worthy to Kobe and Shaq, the Los Angeles Lakers have the greatest team in sports history. And for all yoy laker haters out there, you're just jealous because your favorite team isn't as good as the Lakers.
The Lakers won the title in 1972, 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987, 1988, 2000, 2001 and 2002.
One of sports' best and classiest organizations. The Lakers win championships like nobody's business. The team's leader, Kobe Bryant, is simply the league's best player. None of the Lakers fight with fans, wear massive bling or do rags, or speak out in the media and make fools of themselves like most other teams. Actually a humble group of players who deliver for their fans.
"Kobe put up 38 points in the second half for the Lakers yesterday."
A basketball team from Los Angeles. They are the cross-town rivals of the L.A. Clippers.
The Lakers were founded in Detroit as the Gems. After a miserable first season, the team relocated to Minnesota and became the Lakers. In 1960, the Lakers moved to Los Angeles. Over the years, Shaq and other basketball players have graced the franchise.
In South-Central Los Angeles, wearing Los Angeles Lakers clothing and gear is generally considered gang-neutral. While wearing Lakers clothing won't necessarily guarantee your safety, it does make a statement to gang members that you're not looking for trouble.
Wearing Lakers gear in South-Central will buy you a little safety, but it is not guaranteed.
Red (Bloods) + Blue (Crips) = Purple (Lakers color)
1.(n)Lakers are people who come to the finger lakes region of new york in the summertime and totally make the lives of those who live there year round hell. They are disrespectful, ignorant, and are mostly old and incapable of driving well.
