I went by their impact on the franchise...not necessarily who's better of them... or else sadly I'd probably rank Shaq second.

Kobe and Magic have NO case of being the GOAT Laker.
GOAT Laker = Kareem.

1. Magic - second greatest player of all time.
2. Kobe - entire career with LAL.
3. KAJ - 5 titles.
4. Shaq - 3 titles.
5. West - 9 finals appearances.

I find it funny that I put the second greatest Lakers as Kobe who I have below two of the players that are ahead of him on the all time list. But this thread is just what they did with LAL, so that is why.

5b Wilt Chamberlain

Magic's number one and I don't see Kobe unseating him. I go back and forth with Kobe and Kareem at number 2. I give Kobe the edge because he has been Laker for his whole career. Shaq over West and Wilt because of the 3-peat. Mikan gets assed out because he never played in LA. Honorable mention to James Worthy and Elgin Baylor.

I do not understand why people rank Wilt as top 5 Laker ever. He only played 5 seasons as a Laker and 4 complete-season. He wasn't in his prime. He didn't score more than 6000 points for the Lakers. Aside from Magic, Kobe, Kareem, West and Shaq; Baylor and Worthy are greater then Wilt as Lakers.
