Van Excel-most existing PG of my Laker fandomness :man10:
Eddie Jones-fav SG
Horry-hitting those heart attack shots make me want to run the streets naked
Farmar-meh on D but dude could ball and actaully was nice change of pace to the game, wasn't affraid to take those shots
Odom-hated him with a passion when he 1st got here but dam dude grew on me with his game/attitude during the championship runs
Brown-got a bit carried away with his Kobe imitation but dude was exciting for sure

...and slugged Ainge silly for talking and getting up on his grill during a break in a game. Nicknamed "The Thief" and shot that J fading to his left with accuracy.

Nick Van Exel, b/c he started playing for the Lakers when you knew we weren't going to be in the championship hunt, but his play and style still made the lakers a really fun and entertaining team to watch regardless.

Everyone forgets that Lakers team was the reason Shaq even considered signing with us, that and the $$$.

Van Exel, Jones and them boys cleared the way for Shaq and Kobe.

yep, he's the only one from those 90's lakers I didn't begrudge after he left cause he had to deal with those trade rumors almost every year before it finally happened.

Nick the Quick

Robert Horry
Rick Fox
Derek Fisher
Eddie Jones
John Salley
Brian Shaw
Shaq

and, yes, even Glen Rice. Loved his jumpshot.

Phil.

And:
I don't miss him, cause I hated him, but I always get nostalgic when I see Del Harris. It was back then when my love for LA started.

Purely for? No one. All the players I liked I thought offered something, even if I'm wrong and they really suck :)

I have to say:

LO- one of my favorite Lakers
Sasha- Again, I loved the pest
D-Fish- Dude was a bulldog of the Lakers
Turiaf- Seeing his joy for the game was always a great part of Lakers ball.
Orlando W- (Thanks Roos) I remember just remember waiting for him to get lose and slam one home
Mike Coop- Man the Coop-a-loop. Watching him coming from the wing to catch a lob
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.
