The Los Angeles Lakers are the most successful franchise in NBA history. While they are technically tied with the Boston Celtics with 17 NBA championships, the Celtics have only won four titles since 1976 while the Lakes have won 11 since that time.
The Lakers have likely accumulated the most talented players as a whole in the league’s history. In the modern era, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James alone are arguably the three greatest players of the last 20 years. Magic Johnson is widely considered to be the greatest point guard of all time.
