Los Angeles Lakers Tickets
The America’s professional basketball team Los Angeles Lakers is based in Los Angeles, California. They take part in the National Basketball Association’s or NBA’s Pacific Division of the Western Conference. The Staple Center is the place where the team plays their home games. They share it with other teams of LA which are the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL, Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA, and the Los Angeles Clippers. In the history of NBA, the Lakers team is one of the most successful teams. They have gained the top place in 16 championships; the last one was in 2010. In this current year, the Lakers team, according to Forbes, is the highest priced franchise with 900 million as an estimated value.
The Start and Reign of the Los Angeles Lakers
The franchise of the Los Angeles Lakers started in 1947 when Ben Berger and Morris Chalfen of Minnesota bought the newly separated Detroit Gems of the National Basketball League (NBL) from Gems owner Maury Winston for a value of $15,000. Sid Hartman, a Minneapolis sportswriter, played a major role in putting together the deal which gave birth to the team.
The name "Lakers" came from the Minnesota's nickname "Land of 10,000 Lakes. Hartman also helped in hiring John Kundla, who was from the College of St. Thomas, to be the team's first head coach. Hartman met with him and sold him to the team.
Now, after the future Hall of Famer Coach Phil Jackson passed the throne to the team's new head coach, Mike Brown, another fresh era has started for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball.
Even if the leadership of the "Zen Master" will surely be missed by all Los Angeles Lakers' players and fans, Coach Mike Brown also performed a good job when the Cleveland Cavaliers reached the NBA finals with Lebron James, a superstar player, included in the roster. The team is overflowed in talent, especially with Kobe Bryant as the leading Lakers player, which is why it is no surprise if the new Lakers coach makes a good defense for the L.A. Lakers and other tactics just to win. With this, it is definitely true that the people won't be surprised if they found the Lakers joining the NBA finals again.
What To Watch Out For In This Season
For the NBA season 2011-2012, Mike Brown is chosen by the Lakers to be the team’s new head coach. Mike Brown only ranks twenty-second in the nominated coaches in the Lakers’ history. On the other side, John Kuester was announced to be the Los Angeles Lakers’ new assistant coach. Mike Brown already said that he and the new assistant coach already worked with each other in Cleveland.
Even if the Lakers and Kobe Bryant are already moving on from their young ages, just like their long time court enemy Boston Celtics, they all still have the power and time to place more banners in the Staples Center.
The Lakers team has attained the 16th NBA title from the time they were organized, and they are just behind the Celtics with one title in this category. It is definitely a good thing if the Lakers get their 17th NBA title and then 18th in the next season. And for that reason, it is best to buy all the Los Angeles Lakers tickets for the games you chose to see. And then more probably, with Los Angeles Lakers schedule playoffs and NBA Finals tickets too, if they perform well in this season. The tickets of the Los Angeles Lakers are just some of the most in demand in the NBA league. The Lakers team is one of the expected teams to win it all for the season which does not really surprise the people.
The Lakers are just so popular and always give a good game that even the famous celebrities like James Nicholson comes out to every Los Angeles Lakers schedule game, and he's the person who exactly know of how putting on a show. The Los Angeles tickets last season were the best buy since the team were able to make it to the play offs before getting lost on a game with the Dallas Mavericks. With Kobe Bryant still holding the rock in the last seconds of the game, the Los Angeles Lakers are still considered to be one of the toughest teams in the NBA games.
