With so many expectations coming into the season, the 2012-13 season didn’t end like most envisioned. With Dwight Howard and Steve Nash in the fold to go along with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, a championship parade on Figueroa was planned last summer.
However, injuries, a lack of chemistry and ultimately a lack of overall talent contributed to the Lakers 45-37 record and a first round sweep at the hands of the Spurs.
While most teams would classify a 45-win season as a success, the Lakers have built such a successful brand that it’s championship or bust every season.
Despite all this, there were certainly many memorable moments from the season and we asked the fans to comment and tweet those moments.
Here is what you the fans decided were the most memorable moments of the season:
