Lakers Nation Presents The Top-10 Worst Lakers Of All-Time

PAGES: 10 | 9 | 8 | 7 | 6 | 5 | 4 | 3 | 2 | 1

The Lakers are one of the greatest franchises, not only in basketball history, but in all of sports. With 16 championships and a host of Hall of Famers to their credit, very few franchises can match the Lakers legacy.

But everything hasn’t always gone to plan with the team.

The Lakers are coming off their worst season in the history of the team, and while years like this are few and far between, some of the players who have come through Laker Land, have been far less than stellar.

The team has so many great players that it gets easy to forget the bad ones. But that stops today as we bring you a look at the 10 worst Lakers of All-Time.

10. Dwight Howard (2012-2013)

I know, the numbers he put up were still good. He averaged a double-double and was named All-NBA Third team, a solid campaign without a doubt. But let’s be real here, the Dwight Howard experiment was one of the worst the team has ever tried.

Quite simply, he never fit in Los Angeles. He struggled to mesh in the offense and with his teammates. Reports are that when Kobe Bryant called him out in front of the locker room, he wouldn’t even speak up for himself.

Dwight is a good player who wanted all of the accolades and attention that comes with being a superstar, and none of the responsibility. When the lights of Los Angeles shone brightest upon him, he couldn’t handle the heat and ran away.

Next: No. 9

    Whoever wrote this definitely shows how long they’ve been a fan. Completely skipped a lot of stiffs from the 80′s and early 90′s. Pretty embarrassing attempt at an article.

    This list is kinda stupid if you ask me.  Elden Campbell wasn’t a bad player.  Dennis Rodman wasn’t even a true Laker so why would he even be counted?  I’d love to to go back in time and nab Samaki Walker and have him come off the current roster bench.  Kwame Brown…YES!  Forgot to add Luke Walton to the list…considered how much he was paid.  Smush Parker??  Ehhhhh??  yay and nay.  I wouldn’t label him as one of the worse.  You could throw Brian Cook in there b4 him.Travis Knight?? Ok, but the Lakers got what they paid for..nothin’ was truly expected of knight.  Same can be said for Mark Madson and Slava…they were cheap players that actually produced a tad bit.  Madson had heart…he had effort…why would he be considered one of the worse players?? Was he overpaid or something??  Now one player that got left out was that fool Chirs Mihm. Come in, play one game, get injured and don’t be heard or seen from for the rest of the season but still earning a pretty high salary. I’ll take Travis Knight anyday over Mihm.

    Whoever put this list together should be ashamed of themselves.

    Brian Cook should be #1 on this list. Is he that sneaky that not only did he avoid getting waived or traded for years but now he avoids the worst Laker of all time list!!!
