Overview of the Los Angeles Lakers
Some of the most legendary basketball players have contributed to the success of the Los Angeles Lakers, including Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. However, the team was not always based in Los Angeles.
If you've always wondered how the Lakers team got its name, the team was founded in 1948 in Minnesota (which contains over 11,000 lakes and has a shoreline at Lake Superior). After the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team successfully made the move to LA, the Lakers' management decided to move the team to SoCal before the 1961 season, giving the West Coast its first NBA team. The Lakers kept the name despite the lack of significant lakes in the region.
The Lakers are currently tied with their biggest rival, the Boston Celtics, for winning 17 NBA Championship titles (as of 2023). Other rivals include the LA Clippers (with whom the Lakers share a home arena) and yet another winning California team, the Golden State Warriors, based in San Francisco.
The LA Lakers play home games at Crypto.com Arena, formerly known as the Staples Center. The arena is also home to the Los Angeles Clippers (NBA team) and the Los Angeles Kings (NHL team). Accommodating up to 20,000 people, Crypto.com Arena is also a popular place to see concerts and shows in the area.
