For this week’s “Throwback Thursday” product, we present to you a pair of 1959-1960 Lakers shorts. These are, in fact, Minneapolis Lakers shorts! This was the last season the Lakers played before moving to Los Angeles.
The Lakers won five championships while playing in Minneapolis, and have won 11 since moving to Los Angeles (16 total, second all-time after the rival Celtics’ 17). The quest for 17 begins tonight as the Lakers resume their season!
