When it comes to the greatest NBA teams very few would argue against the “Showtime” Lakers of the 1980’s. With names like Magic, Worthy, and Abdul-Jabbar this Laker team definitely made it’s mark as not just one of the greatest dynasties, but also as one of the most entertaining teams to watch in NBA history. Defensively they were good as a team, but what they were really known for was their offense. With Magic Johnson’s  uncanny ability to find his teammates, Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s domination in the paint, and James Worthy’s knack of being in the right place at the right time, this team put points up on the board and they did it with ease. With 5 NBA titles in a span of 10 years this team was utterly dominant during their time. They got the nickname of “Showtime” because of their fast paced playing style and entertaining fast breaks that were usually led by Magic and his creative passing ability. Their open court style was their trademark and fast breaks were something that was expected when you saw them play. Although there have been many great teams and dynasties in NBA history none were as entertaining as the “Showtime” Lakers.
