The Los Angles Lakers and the L.A. Sports & Entertainment Commission held their 13th Annual Lakers All-Access event, the ultimate experience, giving fans an in-depth look behind the magic that is Staples Center. From touring the locker room to shooting around on the hardwood that the players compete on, to taking pictures with the Larry O’Brien trophies, the event lived up to its name once again.
Some of the greatest legends to wear the purple and gold were in attendance such as Elgin Baylor, James Worthy and the new president of basketball operations, Magic Johnson, who took over the final hour of the panel to answer questions directly from the fans in attendance. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true “All-Access” event without some of the current Laker players interacting with fans, including Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle, and D’Angelo Russell taking selfies with the fans.
Head coach Luke Walton even hosted a clinic, using his players and assistant coaches as the pawns, showing the fans some of the most common drills and plays they run every week.
The best part of the action was that proceeds all go towards the Los Angeles Lakers Youth Foundation and the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission, both nonprofit organizations. Check out our video above to see what you missed out on!
