From 2000 to 2002, an all-conquering Los Angeles Lakers won an incredible three consecutive NBA Championships to add to the franchise’s long and glorious history. Beginning with the acquisition of rookie sensation Kobe Bryant and power forward Shaquille O’Neal in the mid-1990s, the Lakers had begun to assemble an impressive roster of players that also included Robert Horry and Rick Fox, but it was the appointment of future Hall of Fame coach Phil Jackson that was the catalyst for the Lakers’ transformation to a true Championship force.
Who could forget the 1999-00 season when a dominant Lakers team, inspired by league MVP Shaquille O’Neal, mounted a record-breaking comeback in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals against the Portland Trail Blazers, before securing the NBA Championship against the Indiana Pacers? Or in 2000-01, when a rampant Lakers side swept aside Portland, Sacramento and San Antonio before defeating Philadelphia to clinch back-to-back titles with an incredible post-season record of 15-1?
Relive the excitement of the 2001-02 Western Conference Finals against the Kings, in which the Lakers rose from the canvas to record an overtime victory in Game 7, before bulldozing the New Jersey Nets in the Finals. Sit back and enjoy the Official Championship Films from each year of the Lakers’ memorable Three-Peat era, in which fans bore witness to one of the NBA’s greatest teams of the modern era.
