Celebrate the championship glory and Hall of Fame personalities that make the Los Angeles Lakers one of the most iconic franchises in all of sports.
Standard-bearers for basketball greatness, the Los Angeles Lakers have thrilled their loyal fans since the franchise moved west in 1960. Led by Elgin Baylor and Jerry West, they raced to the top of the league and refused to slow down, with superstars like Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, and LeBron James carrying the torch on the way to 17 NBA championships.
Sports Illustrated™ now celebrates the Lakers with an extraordinary collection of classic writing and photographs from the pages of SI. This commemorative book also spotlights the players, championships, and stats that have made the Lakers the greatest show on earth.
Featuring a foreword by Howard Beck and stories by Frank DeFord, Jack McCallum, Chris Ballard, and more, this is an essential volume for Lakers fans.
