The Los Angeles Lakers compete in the Western Conference of the National Basketball Association. The team was founded in 1946 as the Detroit Gems. They held this name until 1947 when they moved to Minneapolis and took the Lakers name. After 13 years, the team moved to Los Angeles in 1960 and has been there ever since.

The Lakers play their home games at the Staples Center. This venue opened in 1999, and is one of the most modern in the NBA. Although the Lakers share this venue with the Clippers, fans do not seem to mind. They only thing that they care about is making as much noise as possible when their team takes the floor.

The reason for the Lakers success over the years has been their many great players. Some of the best Lakers of all time include Magic Johnson, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, James Worthy, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, and many more.

The Los Angeles Lakers have always been one of the best teams in the NBA. And it does not appear that this is going to change anytime soon!
