Greatest Laker?

Im not the biggest of Lakers fans (though I rooted for them during the 90s and before Magic's retirement) but just the same, I wonder who is generally acknowledged as the greatest Laker ever. Is it Magic? Kareem? Shaq? West? Baylor? Or Kobe?

Im being biased that's why I go for Magic. I think of all the great names the franchise has had its still Magic=Lakers. Though if Kobe can win one or two titles in the future he can give Magic a run for his money.

Your thoughts?

P.S. I didnt search for similar threads but it wont bother me if this would be merged with threads of similar topic. *okay*

  • It's really Magic Johnson!

    Hard to name just one but here's my order of the best Lakers ever:

    1. Wilt Chamberlain
    2. Magic Johnson
    3. Shaquille O' Neal
    4. Jerry West
    5. Elgin Baylor
    6. Kobe Bryant
    7. Kareem Abdul Jabbar
    8. Bob McAdoo
  • Ervin "Magic" Johnson

    He'll be an even greater Laker once he runs Kobe out of LA.
  • Though if Kobe can win one or two titles in the future he can give Magic a run for his money.
    You're just trying to get my goat here, right?

    My Top 10.

    1. Earvin "Magic" Johnson - GOAT. Greatest Of All Time for me. He is for me better than everyone including Michael Jordan.
    2. Jerry "Mr. Clutch" West - Not only for his contributions as a player but as GM (9 Titles in Total, 1 in 1972, 5 in the 80s and 3 in the 2000s). Appears on the NBA's logo.
    3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar - 5 Titles and the ultimate unstoppable weapon in the Skyhook.
    4. Shaquille O'Neal - Most Dominant Ever. Only if he learned to take good care of his body and to get along with his sidekicks.
    5. George Mikan - Original Most Dominant center.
    6. Kobe Bryant - Best athlete ever for the Lakers.
    7. Elgin Baylor - The prototype for all High Flyers. Was the Jordan before Jordan, and Dr. J before Dr. J
    8. Gail "Stumpy" Goodrich - Leading scorer of the 1972 Champion Team. He and West formed the highest scoring starting backcourt in history.
    9. James Worthy - Big Game James was big during the playoffs.
    10A. Michael Cooper - The best defender the Lakers ever had. DPOY and multiple defensive team selection.
    10B. Robert Horry - Big Game Rob as opposed to Big Game James. The most clutch roleplayer ever.
  • ^This brought a tear to my eye. There is hope for you yet KWK.

    I'm a Laker fan first before a Kobe fan. The name in front of the jersey is more important than the name at the back of it. That's why I've been a Laker fan since 1982. If the Lakers traded both Kobe and Shaq in 2003, I'll continue to be a Laker fan.

    And the nickname I use is just an homage to both the Lakers and Star Wars who are two of my favorites. Since Kobe's a Laker and Obi-Wan Kenobi is a Star Wars character my nickname is a amalgamation of their names.

    I'm kicking myself in the head for this. You are absolutely right. How can I forget Horry (I'm blaming Kobe for that too).
