1. James Worthy
“Big Game James” tops our small forward list, bringing with him 3 NBA championship rings, 7 all-star apperances,and 1 NBA Finals MVP award. Worthy’s jersey is one of only 7 that hang from the rafters in Staples Center, which no doubt warrants consideration for the top spot on any Lakers list. One word can really sum up Worthy at his best: Showtime. On a team with such incredible talent as Magic, Kareem and Byron, it was even more impressive that Worthy was able to stand out. After leading the Lakers in Game 7 of the 88′ NBA Finals with a triple double vs. Detroit, Worthy was awarded the Finals MVP award and cemented his nick name’s legitimacy.
