Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are one of the most successful teams in the NBA, having won 16 championships. Their games at the famed Staples Center draw millions of fans to Los Angeles each season.

The Los Angeles Lakers weren't always from the City of Angels. In the 1960s the Lakers moved from Minnesota to LA and kept their team name, despite that fact that Los Angeles isn't exactly known for its abundance of lakes. It was in the late '70s and '80s when the Lakers' popularity soared, with superstar players such as Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy. In those years the team had five winning titles, with 3 championship series against their archrivals the Boston Celtics.
