You canít think of the colors purple and gold and not think about the Los Angeles Lakers. Formerly the Minneapolis Lakers from 1947-1960, the franchise moved to the City of Angels and took the city and nation by storm. NBA greats like Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille OíNeal, and Kobe Bryant have all worn the Laker uniform. Also, legendary coaches Pat Riley and Phil Jackson have also coached them. They play their home games at the Staple Center, which is always filled with loyal fans and A-list celebrities.
The Lakers have been one of the most successful sports franchises of all time. They have 23 Division titles and 31 Conference titles. They have won the Championship a stellar 16 times. They share the Staples Center with the in town rival, Los Angeles Clippers, but their biggest rivalry is with the also very accomplished Boston Celtics, who the Lakers have played in the NBA Finals 12 times.
