The Los Angeles Lakers have had a number of stars wear their jersey over the years, from dominant bigs like Shaquille O’Neal and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to breathtaking guards like Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, and Jerry West.

The rafters of the Staples Center are filled with the names and numbers of the players who have captivated the fanbase and driven the franchise to new heights.

Given the team’s storied past, we decided that for this episode of the Lakers Nation Podcast, we would do a fantasy draft featuring the all-time great Lakers. Host Trevor Lane was joined by Hannah Kulik, Nikki Kay and Denise Jones to battle it out and see who could create the best roster possible.

Each team would consist of five players, with the panel having to select not just a player but also the year that they played for the team, which added a bit more strategy to the exercise.

During the draft, it quickly became apparent that each LN staffer had their own approach for besting the competition.

Kulik focused on wing players while Lane took an unconventional route and built around two dominant centers. Jones and Kay, meanwhile, attempted to build well-rounded rosters that had players ready for big moments.

When the final pick was made each of our experts felt confident that they had selected the best squad, though perhaps more importantly, it was impressive just how deep the player pool was. Even in the final picks, there were incredible talents available, showing just how rich the Lakers’ history truly is.
