Unveiling the Lakers Top 10 All-Time Players

The Los Angeles Lakers are an incredibly storied franchise, likely the most in the NBA. With 16 titles, 31 conference titles, and 23 division titles, as well as 9 retired numbers in their rafters, the Lakers are not short on history. Which means trying to narrow down the 10 greatest Lakers players is not an easy task, to say the least. We here at Lake Show Life are going to do our best to do so.


There was no stipulations to voting. Eight of our writers here ranked their respective top 10 Lakers, which was then compiled into one list. Over the next week and a half, we’ll unveil who our top 10 was, starting with number 10 and working down to number one, beginning with today.
