Lakers Are Champs, But These Are My Favourite Lakers

I hope my list causes as much of a stir as Phil Jackson's cap did.

While the Los Angles Lakers celebrate the franchise's 15th title and Coach Phil Jackson surpassed the great Boston Celtics Head Coach Red Auerbach with a record 10 titles as a coach, I look back at my All-Time five favourite Lakers not named Kobe.

#1 "Big Game" James Worthy - the only Lakers jersey I have ever owned.

#2 Bob McAdoo- Although somewhat of a journeyman during his career, I remember McAdoo being a key piece in the Lakers championship runs.

#3 Robert Horry - "Big Shot Bob" should be in the Hall of Fame.

#4 Kurt Rambis - Rambis and I relived WCC memories in the mid 90's when he came Down Under, plus he wears #31.

#5 Wilt Chamberlain - Simple. One of the greatest of all time.
