The Pacers have been doing a tremendous job this playoff season and could, after tonight, be advancing to the NBA Finals. One of the key cogs in the organization is assistant coach Brian Shaw, who after the success of the season may be heading back to Los Angeles, as the Clippers head coach. Shaw played for the Los Angeles Lakers from 1999-2003 and coached for L.A. from 2004-2011.

In 1962, Wilt Chamberlain made history by scoring 100 points in a single game while playing for the Philadelphia Warriors. Chamberlain was in his third season at the time and was averaging a tremendous 50.4 points per game. It wasn’t until 1968 that Chamberlain joined the Los Angeles Lakers.

Check out a Lakers Nation exclusive interview with Metta World Peace as he talks his children’s book and his mental health awareness. Metta also discusses the upcoming player options and where his love of basketball emerged.
