We had an up-and-down episode of Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers. From the Lakers three-peating to the rape case against Kobe and the downfall of Shaq and Kobe’s relationship, we had some drama go down.
- The aftermath of winning the championship resulted in Jerry West potentially leaving the Lakers. However, we find out it was because the relationship between him and Phil Jackson had hit such a downfall that these two could no longer get along.
- Amid all the craziness, the Lakers went on to win their third straight NBA championship. But, like all good things, they come to an end.
- While Jerry was winning titles with the Lakers, Johnny was winning titles with the WNBA team LA Sparks. It was a proud moment for the father/son duo.
- The drama of the Buss siblings continued as Jeanie started to listen
- The case against Kobe causes the biggest riff between him and Shaq. Kobe brought something to the table they shouldn’t have, and that forever put a damper on their relationship, eventually leading to the demise of their friendship and being teammates.
- The behind-the-scenes drama between Shaq and Kobe started to hit the newsstands because Kobe brought it to the media.
- In the aftermath of a long season of drama, Kobe decides to put an ultimatum on the table (some say he did, some say he didn’t) that he wants to win with Shaq. Naturally, this caused mass chaos, with Kobe and Phil going head to head and Shaq asking out.
- Shaq heads to Miami, Kobe settles his case, and Phil Jackson is gone. So it’s time for Kobe to try and win alone.
