I received this book last night and could not put it down. It is the history of the great Lakers franchise with brilliant articles by some of the best writers, spectacular photos and even year by year key statistics. It makes me proud to be a Laker fan and I just placed it on my coffee table for all to see.
The L.A. Times has done a wonderful job along with the Lakers organization for keeping such a high standard after fifty years.

Like Magic said, let's go "back to back" again.

L.A. all the way !!!!!!

Picked this up at the Forum tonight. It is worth the money- many pictures I have never seen and some of the best sportwriting in LA history from the LA Times.
A long forward by Phil Jackson, lots of Scott Ostler and Jim Murray. I have so many Lakers books but this one is the best yet.

I enjoyed this book through and through. I'm not a resident of Los Angeles but I have been a fan of the team since the Mark Landsberger days, and this scrapbook/coffee table style book is a must for every Laker fan. It takes you through the ups and downs of the team's history since arriving in LA. Its so very rich and ends on a high note. Get this book (or the deluxe edition).

So many pictures!!!! Ahh the memories, from Jerry West to Kobe Bryant this book takes you down memory lane. Stories, articles, notes are written so well, and having all those iconic photos next to the story is like being in a time machine.

What a fantastic book for the true Laker fan. This is so affordable yet it feels like a $50 book.

Great buy.

Besides learning about the showtime era and much before my time, this is a great coffee table book or just something to peruse through when you have a few mins.

Its not a exhaustive on any particular season since its obviously trying to cover 50 years but I did enjoy that they included a real newspaper article for almost all of the seasons. Its a great peek into the past, especially this year when theres not much going on with Laker team.

This book really needed to happen after the Lakers' victory last summer, and it couldn't come in a better package at a better time. It's not the fan fluff that you might expect from a big, glossy book like this -- it's got hard-hitting sports writing from the Los Angeles Times throughout the years and brings a lot of Lakers history into play that I certainly didn't know about. Great photos, and Jackson's foreword clinches it.
