The Los Angeles Lakers (formerly Minneapolis Lakers ) are a professional basketball team of the North American National Basketball Association (NBA). The team won a total of 16 championship titles, the second most behind the Boston Celtics (17). The team and jersey colors have been gold and purple since 1967, previously the Lakers wore white and royal blue and the Minneapolis Lakers wore dove blue and yellow. There are also so-called Sunday jerseys, which have been available in white since 2002 and which are traditionally worn on Sunday afternoons and afternoons. The Lakers were the only team in the NBA whose home jersey was not white until the home kit regulation was changed in 2017/18 . The team name "Lakers" (in German roughly "who live on the lakes" or "who live on the lakes") goes back to the time when the Lakers still played in Minneapolis , Minnesota . "Lakers" refers to the nickname of the state of Minnesota as the "land of 10,000 lakes". After moving to Los Angeles, the team kept the name. According to Forbes , the Lakers have long been the NBA's most expensive franchise at an estimated $ 900 million .
1947–1968: Started in Minneapolis, relocated to Los Angeles
Since the league was founded, the Lakers have been part of the NBA and also one of the most successful teams. At that time still based in Minneapolis , the Lakers formed the first dynasty with their center George Mikan when they won five championships between 1949 and 1954. After winning the fifth title Mikan announced his resignation, the subsequent unsuccessful phase of the Lakers lasted only a short time. 1958 drafteten they Elgin Baylor and two years later, Jerry West . In the same year the association moved from Minneapolis to the west coast to Los Angeles at the instigation of its new owner, the entrepreneur and politician Robert Short . In Minneapolis, ice hockey was more popular with the public, and Short promised greater profits in California. Despite the two superstars Baylor and West - both were named one of the 50 best players in NBA history in 1996 for the league's 50th birthday - the Lakers were unable to break the superiority of the Boston Celtics in the 1960s, who won eleven championships between 1957 and 1969.
1968–1973: The Wilt-Chamberlain Era
In 1968 the Lakers brought Wilt Chamberlain , the premier center of the league. But despite this reinforcement, they were defeated on the way to the title for the next three years. It wasn't until 1972 that the Lakers won their first championship in Los Angeles, ironically without Elgin Baylor, who announced his retirement due to an injury in the middle of the season. However, Gail Goodrich had a significant share in winning the championship. In 1973 the team lost again in the NBA final, after which Wilt Chamberlain resigned. He was followed a year later by Jerry West and the Lakers were forced to build a new team around Goodrich.
1976–1996 Abdul-Jabbar, Worthy and the “Magic” Johnson era, the “Showtime Express”
In 1976 the Lakers succeeded again in signing the best center in the league, in this case Kareem Abdul-Jabbar of the Milwaukee Bucks , three-time MVP of the league to date . In the following two years, Abdul-Jabbar won the league's most valuable player award, the championships for the Lakers did not materialize. The Lakers continued to rebuild the team. In 1977 Jamaal Wilkes came from the Golden State Warriors . In 1979 the Lakers got the right to be the first team to vote in the draft through a clever trade with the New Orleans Jazz . The choice fell on Earvin "Magic" Johnson , who led the Lakers to the longed-for NBA title in his first season. In 1982 the Lakers won the championship again. In the 1982 draft, the Lakers were given the first right to vote again , following a prior agreement with the Cleveland Cavaliers . With the first pick, they picked James Worthy . In the 1980s, Abdul-Jabbar, Johnson and Worthy founded the "Showtime Express" due to the spectacular style of play. Other important players of the time were AC Green , Byron Scott and Michael Cooper . The team was coached by Pat Riley . By 1988 three more championships were added (1985, 1987, 1988). In 1989 the Lakers were surprisingly clearly defeated by the Detroit Pistons . In the same year, Abdul-Jabbar resigned after 20 years of professional career. After losing the playoffs to the Phoenix Suns in 1990 , coach Pat Riley resigned. Magic Johnson single-handedly led the team to the final one more time in 1991, losing to Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls . A few months later, Johnson announced his retirement due to an HIV infection . Johnson's sudden resignation put the Lakers in a state of shock from which they only recovered after a few years. Over the years, key players left the Lakers or resigned. James Worthy, the last remaining part of the Showtime Express, announced his resignation in 1994. Magic Johnson took over the Lakers in 1994 for a short time as a coach, but failed with the playoff entry. In the same year they got Eddie Jones through the draft . With players like Jones and Nick Van Exel , the Lakers managed to move into the playoffs in the next two years. Magic Johnson also made a brief comeback in 1996 in Lakersdress and played 32 games before finally ending his career.
1996–2004: beginning of the Kobe-Bryant and Shaquille-O'Neal era
In 1996, then General Manager Jerry West got two commitments that made the Lakers a title contender in one fell swoop. First, he traded the team's center, Vlade Divac , for the Charlotte Hornets ' draft pick , Kobe Bryant . A few days later he signed Shaquille O'Neal from the Orlando Magic , who at that time - like Chamberlain and Abdul-Jabbar before him - was the most dominant center in the NBA. Furthermore, Derek Fisher was engaged through the draft and Robert Horry . Until the 1998/99 season , this highly talented team was always eliminated early in the NBA playoffs, whereupon the team owner Jerry Buss for the first time managed to sign a real starting coach.
Before the 1999/2000 season , Phil Jackson , six-time champion with the Bulls, came to the Lakers as head coach and with him success. Shaquille O'Neal, who was already the best player in the NBA after Jordan's resignation in 1999, rose again and was almost unanimously voted Most Valuable Player of the Year (MVP). By 2002 the Lakers won three championships in a row, a so-called threepeat . This success kept the team's two stars, Bryant and O'Neal, together despite their mutual antipathy. After the Lakers lost early in the playoffs in 2002/03 and , although highly favored, were defeated by the Detroit Pistons in the NBA Finals in 2003/04 , the two superstars parted ways. The Lakers decided to keep Kobe Bryant and so Shaquille O'Neal was sent to the Miami Heat in exchange for Lamar Odom , among others .
O'Neal's departure for the Heat tore a bigger hole than expected and Kobe Bryant alone was unable to compensate for it. In the 2004/05 season , the playoffs took place for the first time after 1994 without the Lakers. Surprisingly, Phil Jackson returned to coach the Lakers after the season. In the 2005/06 season , however, the Lakers managed to get into the playoffs due to the resurgent Kobe Bryant, where they were only narrowly defeated against the title favorites Phoenix Suns.
The following year, the 2006/07 season , the Lakers suffered a heavy loss to the Dallas Mavericks . The team lost 72: 108 in front of their own audience. This home defeat is the highest in the club's history.
In the 2007 playoffs, it was similar to the previous season. They fought their way to seventh place in the west and faced the Phoenix Suns again. However, they lost the series 1: 4.
2007-2011: return to the top, signing Pau Gasol
In the 2007/08 season they won first place in the Western Conference and moved into the finals , where they were, however, subject to the Boston Celtics . Since the 2007/08 NBA season, the Lakers have once again been among the best teams in the NBA. They owe this mainly to the positive development of their Center Andrew Bynum and the trade of Pau Gasol , which came from the Memphis Grizzlies in February 2008 .
In the 2009/10 season , the Lakers moved into the finals for the third time in a row, where, like two years earlier, they met the Boston Celtics. This time the Lakers won the series 4-3, and Kobe Bryant was re-elected Finals MVP.
In the 2010/11 season , the Lakers started the season again as favorites. After a relatively good season, the Lakers qualified for the playoffs. After the win in the first round against the New Orleans Hornets , the team was disappointed against the Dallas Mavericks, to the German star Dirk Nowitzki , with 0: 4. With the departure, the era of Phil Jackson ended with the Lakers. Jackson had led the Lakers to five championships.
Before the 2011/12 season , which only started on December 25th due to the lockout, David Stern (NBA Commissioner) vetoed a trade in which Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom were to switch to the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for Chris Paul ( the NBA itself owned the Hornets from December 2010 to 2012). When that trade failed, Jason Kapono was signed by the Philadelphia 76ers. Furthermore, Lamar Odom left the team in the direction of Dallas to the Mavericks. This happened because the latter, after learning that the Lakers were about to hand him over to get Chris Paul, requested a move.
Shortly before the end of the trade deadline, the Lakers sent Derek Fisher along with their first-round pick to Houston to the Rockets in exchange for Power Forward / Center Jordan Hill . Furthermore, Luke Walton and Jason Kapono were sent to the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 2012 first-round pick and the Lakers received the Point Guard Ramon Sessions and Christian Eyenga in return .
The Lakers finished the regular season in third place in the Western Conference and met the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs . The Lakers won the series 4-3 in games. In the Conference semifinals they were eliminated from the Oklahoma City Thunder with 1: 4 in games.
2012–2016: season with Dwight Howard, rebuilding, Kobe Bryant's final years
In the offseason 2012, the Lakers strengthened with Dwight Howard , who moved from the Orlando Magic . With Steve Nash and Antawn Jamison they were also able to bring further notable commitments to the team. With three defeats in a row at the beginning of the season, the Lakers started a season as badly as they have not since 1978. After only one of the first five games could be won, head coach Mike Brown was fired in November 2012 and replaced by Mike D'Antoni . Shortly before the start of the playoffs, Kobe Bryant fell out with a torn Achilles tendon and, in addition, Steve Blake and Steve Nash. As a result, the Lakers lost in the first round in four games against the San Antonio Spurs .
For the 2013/2014 season, top performers such as Dwight Howard , Metta World Peace and Antawn Jamison left the team despite some new contract offers. Howard's departure in particular hit the franchise hard. Due to the long-term failure of Kobe Bryant, the Lakers announced a transition year and signed free players mostly with contracts for one year in order to be able to act flexibly on the player market in the summer of 2014. Best-known new players were center Chris Kaman , who moved to Los Angeles from the Dallas Mavericks , and guard Nick Young , who came from Philadelphia. The German national player Elias Harris also made it into the Lakers squad via the NBA Summer League , but was dismissed after a few weeks to make room for more players in the squad. December 2013 Bryant returned to the Lakers team and made his comeback. However, he injured himself again after a few games, which means that he will be out the rest of the season. The season ended sobering in the table cellar of the Western Conference. With 27 wins and 55 defeats you could only leave the Utah Jazz behind in the Conference. After Mike D'Antoni could not agree on a longer cooperation with the Lakers, he resigned from his position as head coach of the Lakers at the end of April 2014.
In the 2014 NBA draft , they were in the top 10 for the first time since 2005 and recruited the power forward Julius Randle in seventh place. After six years, Gasol left the Lakers and joined the Chicago Bulls . Carlos Boozer was signed as a replacement , who in turn had previously been dismissed by the Bulls. In addition, Byron Scott was presented as the new coach.
Despite the return of Kobe Bryant, the Lakers made the worst start in the club's history with one win in eight defeats. Bryant could not finish the season again without injury. Rookie Randle was injured in his first game and was out for the rest of the season. Hopes were raised by rookie Jordan Clarkson , who had a strong season. The season ended with 21 wins and 61 losses. This made them the fourth worst team in the NBA and set a franchise-internal negative record. Due to the lottery, the Lakers slipped to second place in the order in the 2015 NBA Draft . This was also the highest draft placement for over 30 years. In the draft, 19-year-old D'Angelo Russell from Ohio State University was chosen in second place . For the new season, Starspier Kobe Bryant announced that the 2015/16 season would be his last season. The Lakers only strengthened to a limited extent over the summer. Only ex-All-Star Roy Hibbert and the reigning Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams were notable reinforcements, and with Metta World Peace , who last played in Italy, a member of the 2010 championship team returned to Los Angeles. However, the Lakers played a weak season again and had no chance to reach the playoffs early on and as the first team of the season. The Lakers set a new negative team record with 17 wins and 65 losses and finished last in the Western Conference. In addition to numerous high defeats, especially escapades off the pitch caused negative attention, private videos appeared and several players publicly berated their fans. In late April 2016, coach Scott was sacked. Kobe Bryant also played his last game in the Lakers jersey on April 13, 2016 and retired from professional sport after 20 years with the Lakers.
Since 2016: The post-Bryant era
For the 2016/17 season , the former Lakers player Luke Walton took over as Head Coach of the Lakers . During the 2016 draft lottery, the Lakers were again awarded the right to vote in second place. With this, Brandon Ingram of Duke University was selected. Under Walton, the Lakers only improved marginally to 26 wins this season, but this time again they clearly missed the playoffs. Shortly before the 2017 NBA draft , D'Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov were transferred to the Brooklyn Nets for Brook Lopez . In the NBA draft, the Lakers reinforced themselves with point guard Lonzo Ball from the local UCLA in second place. With Kyle Kuzma another rookie was drawn in 27th place, who also had a surprisingly good season. The Lakers were able to increase their record in the 2017/18 season with a young team consisting of Ingram, Ball, Randle and Kuzma to 35 wins. The playoffs were clearly missed this time too.
In the 2018 NBA draft , Moritz Wagner (in 25th position) and Svi Mikhailiuk (in 47th position) signed two foreign players. Isaac Bonga , who was selected 39th by the Philadelphia 76ers , was traded to the Lakers on July 6, 2018 and played with the two for the team in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
In the free agency phase of 2018, the Lakers secured superstar LeBron James . They also hired the role players Rajon Rondo , Lance Stephenson , JaVale McGee and Michael Beasley . Despite a well-known squad, the Lakers again missed the playoffs and parted ways with head coach Luke Walton after the season . After a few weeks, Frank Vogel , who had previously been head coach of the Indiana Pacers and Orlando Magic , was presented as his successor .
Shortly before the Free Agency 2019, Anthony Davis was traded in a three-team deal. The Lakers gave Brandon Ingram , Lonzo Ball , Josh Hart and future picks to New Orleans and also sent Moritz Wagner, Isaac Bonga and Jemerrio Jones to Washington . The further goal was to create Cap Space to sign another well-known free agent, the main goal was Kawhi Leonard , but failed. In the draft, only Talen Horton-Tucker in position 46 was drawn in the second round, as the # 4 pick was included in the Davis Trade package.

Starting with the 2013-14 NBA season, Time Warner Cable has acquired broadcast rights for 20 years for all pre-season, regular season and playoff games that are not broadcast nationally in the United States. The contract is valued at $ 3 billion.
There has been a strong rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics since the Lakers joined the league, which peaked in the 1960s and 80s. Both teams met twelve times in the NBA finals, of which the Celtics won nine series. The skin color of the stars of the respective teams also played an important role. While the stars of the Lakers consisted mostly of players of African American origin (Johnson, Abdul-Jabbar, Worthy, Baylor, Chamberlain or Scott ), the stars of the Celtics consisted mainly of players of European origin ( Bird , Cowens , McHale , Cousy , Havlicek , Ainge or Heinsohn ).
