The Los Angeles Lakers are one of the most iconic teams the NBA has ever seen. They are royalty in yellow and gold, and though their last few seasons have not been exceptional, the team has hosted some of the greatest players of all time.
The Lakers are a team that commands togetherness and support. Being able to put together a group of the greats who have played here would make this team unstoppable.
Now, it was a big deal for the Lakers and was also seen as their comeback to the top when they announced that they were acquiring LeBron James for their 2018-19 roster.
This seemed to work for them more in the first half of the season, but with changing gameplay dynamic, we can't tell for sure anymore. The Lakers have proven their worth. They've been in the playoffs in 60 out of 71 all-time seasons and have 16 championships.
The Lakers even at their lows come across as meaning to be a top dog team. Here is a list of best all-time player ratings and roster.
#5 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, C/PF (96)

A big man from the Lakers, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was a key player for the Lakers on both offense and defense. He was intuitive on the court and quick on his feet despite his massive stature.
