LOS ANGELES LAKERS
the team of the city of Los Angeles is one of the leagues most successful along with the Boston Celtics. The Lakers were founded in 1947 and as member of the western conference has won 17 Championships and 19 conference finals.
the team has had numerous all-star players like MAgic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-jabbar, jerry west, Shaquille O’neal and the sadly passed away Kobe bryant.
all these players are known for a certain reason, for example MAgic was the first player to play all the 5 positions on all-star level. Jerry west is the unanimous face of the NBA logo while Shaq was the most dominant player ever to step on a basketball court. Kobe was one of the most dominant scorer of the league during his period, he was so good that single handily managed to score 81 points on the Toronto raptors.
the teams home stadium is the staples center which they share with their city rival, the clippers. The arena capacity is close to 19.000, since this arena is shared by multiple teams like the lakers, clippers, kings(Ice hockey team) the capacity of it can change.
