Ah, basketball in the City of Angels. Los Angeles has a pair of NBA teams: One (the Lakers) have won 17 NBA Championships. The other (sorry, Clippers) hasn’t event been to a final.
Whether you’re fan of the dominant Lakers, and their multiple eras of glory, or the Clippers, and their multiple eras of…well, not glory, there’s no denying both teams have fielded some impressive rosters. The Lakers, who won their first championship in 1949, have, of course, seen a more impressive bunch wearing their colors.
