So the talk is continuing.

What could we better do to recognise our history?

No other thread seemed appropriate for this and I wanted to share this with everyone. I don't expect any real discussion here necessarily, but it's nice to see crowd chanting, Bron carrying that trophy, brief statements/impressions by so many players etc. Enjoy!

To appreciate how fortunate and lucky we really are to be part of this team. Yeah, we are just fans, but we have stuck with this team through thick and thin. We bleed purple and gold, we are all Lakers just like the players, the owners, the front office, so on and so forth. And think about what all we have experienced.

I'm only 25, but in my lifetime alone I have witnessed great player after great player. Great team after great team. I got to cheer for stars like Kobe, Shaq, LeBron, AD, and Pau in my lifetime. I got to witness the growth of guys like Caruso, Kuzma, Lamar, Farmar, Shannon Brown, Bynum, and KCP. I got to see the redemption arcs of Dwight and Metta. I got to see the GOAT coach in Phil Jackson in action and I got to see a hard worker like Frank Vogel earn the respect he deserves.

The Lakers franchise has just moved into 1st place all time with a 17th trophy. We all know the franchise has had more than its share of great players. So, if we lined up the best Lakers of all time, against a squad of the best of the rest of the NBA all time, who would win in a seven game series? I'm using 12 man squads for the comparison. Since it's my rules, I'm not using any of the Laker choices from years where they played for other teams to play for the NBA.

LAKERS:

Center: Kareem, Shaq, Wilt

Power Forward: AD, Pau

Small Forward: LeBron, Elgin, Worthy

Shooting Guard: Kobe, Jerry West

Point Guard: Magic, Gail Goodrich

NBA:

Center: Hakeem, Bill Russell, Moses Malone

Power Forward: Tim Duncan, Karl Malone

Small Forward: Bird, Doctor J, Kevin Durant

Shooting Guard: Jordan, DWade

Point Guard: Oscar Robertson, Isaiah Thomas
