We have had the most emotional episode of the Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers. We saw the fall of the greatest dynasties, how they struggled to get it back together, and how off the court things transpired that affected the players. Here is everything that went down in season 1, episode 5.

  • The Lakers were on the verge of being eliminated from the first round of the playoffs. However, off the court, the verdict of the trial of the cops that beat Rodney King had exonerated them of any charges causing riots in the streets of LA.
  • After winning game three, the riots were so bad that the Lakers had to move their home game to Vegas.
  • The move to Vegas caused the Lakers to be displaced from their home crowd and lost to the Blazers in game four.
  • Byron Scott came out with a statement saying he didn’t agree with what the protesters were doing but understood why they were doing what they were doing. Unfortunately, because of his message, he faced much backlash from people across the US.
  • We saw the rise of Hip-Hop and how it was correlated with the NBA in the early 90s.
  • In the NBA draft to replace Magic, the Lakers took Nick Van Exel, who had fallen on draft boards, and came into the Lakers with a chip on his shoulder.
  • Another thing we saw was the change in the NBA. We saw how Michael Jordan changed the game on the court by being more of a show than we saw in the previous years.
  • The aftermath of Showtime started to take a toll on fans and even the front office. A revolving door of coaches, players, and the front office caused the fans that were used to seeing this team win to have a massive fall from grace.
  • Fans quickly forgot how many titles the Lakers had won and started to boo the team.
  • One year, Magic Johnson took over as Head Coach because Jerry Buss had asked him to, leading to a quick departure after one year because Magic did not like it.
  • Jeanie Buss posed for Playboy.
  • We get the backstory of the creation of the WNBA and how everyone thought that Jeanie would be the person to run the LA team. But instead, it was given to her brother.
  • The 1996 draft had arrived, and the town talked about Kobe Bryant and how the Lakers wanted him but wasn’t in the position to grab him. We see that shortly after the Hornets drafted him, Kobe was traded to the Lakers for Vlade Divac.
  • As the episode ended, we saw that the Lakers went ALL IN for Shaq to join the team.
