We realized that Post-Kareem was the downfall of the Showtime team. So from the drafting of Vlade Divac to the downfall of Pat Riley, this week’s Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers go real intriguing. Here’s everything that went down in Season 1, Episode 4.

  • We got the announcement of Kareem Abdul Jabar retiring. Which put a massive hole in the team that Jerry Buss wasn’t sure how they would fill.
  • On draft night, Jerry West asked the room who they should draft, and they all said Cliff Robinson. Like West was known to do, he zagged instead of zigged and took Vlade Divac, which shocked everyone.
  • Divac took the Lakers by storm. It was insane to see him go from nothing to stardom fast.
  • Jerry Buss was on the verge of buying the Dallas Cowboys until an article about his playboy style was released, preventing owners from accepting.
  • Pat Riley started letting things get to his head, which began to take a toll on the team. It ruffled the feathers of so many team members.
  • Amid the adversity, Riley won Coach of the Year as the Laker had their best record in the league. However, the team entered the playoffs and lost in the first round to the Suns 4-1.
  • After many great seasons and titles, Jerry Buss fired Pat Riley after his recent outburst and playoff loss.
  • Jeanie Buss’s relationship started to fall apart as her husband thought she cared more about her family than their relationship. Because of this led to them getting a divorce.
  • Mike Dunleavy was the team’s new coach, and he came in running and gunning with the team.
  • We had our first look at Michael Jordan as they took on the LA Lakers in the NBA Championship.
  • The Lakers lost to the Bulls in the finals, and Magic took this one to heart.
  • Magic Johnson announced to the team that he had contracted HIV.
  • We get some incredibly emotional moments where so many Lakers talk about Magic’s impact on them.
