A team that makes its fans dreams come true more often than not are the Los Angeles Lakers. They are one of the most successful teams in the sports history that has gone on to win seventeen NBA/BBA/NBL titles and numerous other division and conference championships. Since the very beginning the team has been one of the major forces of basketball and has developed a fan following that buys Los Angeles Lakers tickets for every game to support their team like real fans.
The Los Angeles Lakers history can be traced back to the days when an NBL team Detroit Gems folded in 1947. The Gems were bought by Morris Chalfen and Ben Berger from Minnesota and gave it a new name the Minnesota Lakers and won the NBL title in its first year. The Lakers then switched to the BAA in 1948 and won their first BAA championship in 1949. They created history when the franchise won its second BAA title the very next year to make it two in a row. The next decade started off with the Lakers winning another NBA title in the 1951-52 season and defeated the New York Knicks in the finals next year to win their second title in a row. An amazing season saw them crowned champions in the next season too thus completing a hat trick of titles, a feat that hasn’t been repeated too often.
The franchise then moved to Los Angeles and became the Los Angeles Lakers. In their first season they signed Jerry West to compliment Elgin Baylor. The duo worked in tandem to propel the team to the NBA finals in 1962 where they lost to the great Boston Celtic team of that era. The Los Angeles Lakers won the division and conference titles during the 60’s but the NBA title eluded them. In the last part of the 60’s the franchise bought Wilt Chamberlain to play with Baylor and West. The team won their division but came up short in the finals once again to their nemesis the Celtics. Changes were at a premium at the start of the 1971-1972 season to win the NBA title. Baylor retired and Bill Sharman took over as head coach to start a new era. The changes worked to perfection with the team winning a staggering thirty three consecutive games to create a new record and landing their first NBA title since 1954. Another title followed in 1973 to make it two in a row for the Los Angeles Lakers.At the end of their title winning season and subsequent injury to West the team started to rebuild and bought Kareem Abdul-Jabbar the next season. The team strengthened further during the 1970’s by the acquisition of Magic Johnson to go on to win the NBA title in 1980. It was Showtime literally during the 1980’s when the team won five NBA championships. The following decade was marred by the retirement and departures of stalwarts like Jabbar and Michael Cooper. Even during that rebuilding phase the Los Angeles Lakers won Conference and Division titles but the Promised Land of the NBA title eluded them. That all changed when the Lakers hired Phil Jackson as coach to lead a team headed by Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal. The changes worked to perfection and the team won their first NBA title since 1988 when they swept the Indiana Pacers in the finals. Two more titles followed in 2001 and 2002 before O’Neil left to join the Miami Heat and Jackson stepped down as coach. Another little rebuilding started which paid its dividends when the Lakers won two more titles in 2009 and 2010.
The Los Angeles Lakers have been through ups and down but it has kept going to become one of the most decorated team in basketball history. They are also the first team to win three thousand normal season games in basketball history which is an unbelievable achievement. Supported and loved by a hardcore following the Lakers are once again one of the favorites to win the NBA championship.
