NBA Style: Classic Lakers #TBT

NBA Style
By the NBA.com Style Crew

The Los Angeles Lakers have always embodied Hollywood. They are glitz and glamour, celebrities and championships, swimming pools and movie stars. And part of the gig of being Hollywood’s best, from Magic to Wilt To Shaq to Kobe, has been being on fashion’s cutting edge, all the time. From classic suits to workout gear to casual wear (including, yep, suspenders!), part of being among the Lakers’ starring cast has always meant embracing the styles on the cutting edge. No matter how they look in retrospect.

Last night in … bragging rights

by Micah Hart

I know the Lakers won the NBA title last year, but this is a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately kind of league, and the Celtics now have the upper hand in the rivalry after Sunday’s 109-96 win in Los Angeles.

It’s interesting that last week former Lakers GM Jerry West said the team might be too old to play defense, then the Lakers go out and allow Boston to shoot 60.3% from the field. Seems like the Logo is on to something.

We’ll see how long those bragging rights last – the two teams go at it again just 11 days from now on February 10.
