Last season, the Lakers finished the regular season 1st in the Pacific and 3rd overall in the West. Hopes for second consecutive NBA title were shattered, however, when they faced the OKC Thunder in the Conference Semifinals. The Thunder would defeat them in five games. This season, expectations are even bigger for the Lakers as they have assembled a starting lineup made up of five All-Star players. Nicknamed the “Big Four” by fans and media, Kobe Bryant, Metta World Peace, Dwight Howard, and Steve Nash hope to put together their experience and talent and bring LA what LeBron, Wade, and Bosh brought Miami last season: an NBA title. Pau Gasol is the fifth man on the starting lineup and though he doesn’t get as much attention as the rest of the lineup, he’s a valuable and solid defender who can help generate opportunities for his teammates. The Lakers clearly have what it takes to make the playoffs this season and possibly to NBA Finals. Don’t wait and get your tickets today!
The Los Angeles Lakers are one of two teams to represent the city of Los Angeles in the Pacific Division and Western Conference of the NBA.The franchise was founded in 1947 as the Minneapolis Lakers, a reference to the state's nickname, "Land of 10,000 Lakes". There, the Lakers would win 5 NBA titles with help from legendary center George Mikan, also known as Mr. Basketball. After Mikan’s retirement, the Lakers would face financial problems in Minneapolis and would be forced to relocate the team before the 1960-61 season to Los Angeles. Shortly after moving to LA, the Lakers would again experience success, reaching the NBA Finals 6 times during the 60s. Wilt Chamberlain and Jerry West would keep the Lakers in contention before they acquired another center, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who would win multiple MVP awards with the franchise. The 1980s Lakers were nicknamed "Showtime" due to their Magic Johnson-led fast break-offense. The team struggled again in the early 1990s before acquiring Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant in 1996. From 2000 to2002, the Lakers would win three consecutive titles, securing the franchise its second "three-peat". The Lakers have won a total of 16 NBA titles, the last time being in 2010. Sixteen Hall of Famers have played for Los Angeles and four have gone on to coach the team. Become a part of history by getting your tickets to the Los Angeles Lakers’2012-13 NBA season today!
