Los Angeles Lakers: The Fantastic Forum

The Great Forum! was the Lkaers home for around 30 years, hosting some of the greatest players of all time, from Mr. Clutch Jerry West), to Wilt the Stilt Chamberlain, The Captai Kareem Abdul-JAbar, and Showtime (magic johnson). Other than great players playing there, and having hosted the best franchise in nba history, The Forum was a pop culture fad in the 70’s, 80’s, and part of the 90’s! Everyone in hollywood was at the Laker game whether you liked basketall or not. A-list celebrities could be found all over the arena, and that meant that every game was going to be televised. The Lakers are no longer in the Forum, they have moved to the iconic staples center, but some dbate that the staples center will never have the magnitude the forum did.
