This Day In NBA History: Friday April 27

NBA history was made 52 years ago with the start of a franchise that went on to win 10 NBA titles, a coalescing team that we can all strongly consider them as a dynasty to remember.  But it wasn’t always about purple and yellow and they were originally established in the northern city of Minnesota where they now have the Timberwolves.  Success was doubtful in the winding years of the Minnesota Lakers as they maintained a below .500 record for five years straight, making a city relocation a logical strategy to boost the team’s energy.  Behind the former Laker forces of Shaquille O’Neal, Derek Fisher and current Laker, Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles remains to be one of NBA’s hardest to beat.
