Re: Who are the favorite teams in your franchise's history that you were alive to see?
Look at my avy for the team. These are only in chronological order, not a ranking of favorite to least favorite.
1999-00: The start of a 3-peat. I used to be able to name every player on the active roster. I can't do it now without looking it up online because I sometimes get some players mixed up with others from the other 2 title wins.
2005-06: yeah, yeah. The team was just the Kobe show, but I was 15-16 yrs old at the time, and it was fun discussing Lakers basketball with my high school friends, especially with Kobe seemingly scoring 40 every night. Plus, it's funny to think back to that season and recall how even an injury to Chris Mihm was a huge deal to me. It was also the first time ever that I watched all 82 games. I had never done that before. Thank you, DVR.
2008-09: Kobe + Pau = championship
2009-10: possibly my favorite year. People thought the team was done, but this season started the "turn it on when it matters" chatter about the Lakers. They also won the NBA title in exciting fashion.
