ESPN: 50 Greatest Lakers of All Time

Today ESPN debuted their new website, ESPNLosAngeles.com. The pulling back of the curtain revealed a core focus on local sports teams for both the professional and collegial level but what really stood out for me was a small top link that read, "Top 50 L.A. Lakers". ESPN writer Dave McMenamin explains the process he used in creating this list of the 50 greatest Lakers of all time. Here it is in sequential order from last to first. To see the list in greater detail with writer commentary click on the link above.
