It was an amazing year for the Los Angeles Lakers. It started with the Lakers as the defending champions and will finish the same way. We saw epic series’ and amazing performances. We were able to witness the maturation of young players and the dominance of savvy veterans. We watched as Phil Jackson won his eleventh title, as Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher won their fifth, and as the Lakers as a whole hung their sixteenth championship banner into the rafters of Staples Center.
Overall it was a great year for a great franchise. As 2010 comes to a close and we look ahead to 2011, it seems only fair that we put together a brief montage of the greatest moments of 2010, and reflect on the year that was in Lakers basketball.
