The Los Angeles Lakers are an NBA franchise based out of Los Angeles, California that plays in the Western Conference’s Pacific Division. The Lakers got their nickname from their original days of playing in Minneapolis, the Land of 10,000 Lakes. The team moved from Minnesota to Los Angeles in 1960 where they built on to their already impressive NBA resume. After years of playing at the famous Inglewood Forum, the Lakers moved to the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles for the 1999 season.
The name Lakers is automatically synonymous with tradition. Few teams in the history of the National Basketball Association have been as successful and iconic as the Lakers franchise has. Dating back to their days in Minneapolis, the franchise has produced decades worth of basketball legends. From Wilt Chamberlain and Jerry West to Magic and Kareem to Shaq and Kobe, a jaw dropping number of Hall of Fame players have called Los Angeles home. Second to only the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles has won 16 NBA Championships in their existence on top of 31 conference and 23 division titles. With Nick Young, Steve Nash, and Kobe Bryant leading the way, the Lakers look to take home trophy number 18 and claim the title of most winning franchise in NBA history.
