LA Lakers Team history
The Lakers' franchise was founded in 1946 in Detroit, Michigan and borrowing from the state's nickname, "Land of 10,000 Lakes," to name themselves the Lakers.
Lakers Move to Los Angeles
During the 1960 offseason, the Lakers became the first West Coast team when the owner moved the team to Los Angeles. The Lakers eventually made it to the finals where they took revenge on the New York Knicks by winning in five games, bringing the first Association title to Los Angeles. The Lakers took the Pacific Division title and swept both the Phoenix Suns and the San Antonio Spurs. The Lakers then stretched its postseason winning streak to nine games by taking the first contest of the Finals from the 76ers. The Celtics won the title and extended the Lakers' drought to eight series defeats to Boston in the Finals. In 1985 the team won the title in the Boston Garden, thus making the Lakers the only visiting team to ever win a league championship there. In the 1997–98 season, O'Neal and the Lakers had the best start in franchise history, starting 11–0, however were swept in four games by the Utah Jazz, being one series short of reaching the Finals for the first time since 1991. In 2000 the team moved to a new arena, the Staples Center. The Lakers became the first team to repeat as champion since the Lakers themselves last did the trick in 2002.
The Lakers have had a long rivalry with the Boston Celtics. They have met in the Finals 12 times with the Celtics winning nine times and the Lakers three times. The first meeting in the Finals was in 1959. Despite being swept by the Celtics in 1959, the Lakers managed to keep every game close. The teams met six more times in the sixties, with the Celtics winning each time. The teams renewed their Finals rivalry in the 1980s, meeting three times (1984, 1985, and 1987). The 1984 series was hyped by the media as Larry Bird vs. Magic Johnson. Their last meeting in the league finals was in 2010, where the Lakers defeated the Celtics in seven games to clinch their sixteenth title.
