After the NBA announced the suspension of its season indefinitely, we were left with the desire to watch more NBA basketball.
Not only that, but many people are stuck in their houses without something to do.
Here is a list of Laker-related things to watch/do!
1) Watch Documentaries
There are plenty of sports documentaries that are interesting and entertaining, but one of the best ones is based on the Lakers biggest rivalry:
ESPN films 30 for 30: Celtics/Lakers Best of Enemies
A great documentary that tells the story of the rivalry between the Lakers and Celtics from the Jerry West/Bill Russell era. Narrated by Ice Cube, it focuses more on what happened in the 80’s decade, where either the Lakers or Celtics were on the finals every year. Both teams combined for 8 titles and 13 finals appearances, and led by Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, it gave the NBA one of the best rivalries ever.
Kobe Bryant’s Muse
A documentary that explores Kobe’s first 18 seasons in the NBA. It talks about Kobe’s work behind the scenes, his biggest rivalries, and challenges.
You can also find on YouTube documentaries about Lakers championships runs and dynasties. Comment witch are your favorites!
2) Listen to Podcasts
A good way to learn about players and their life outside basketball is to listen to them being authentic with the microphone.
Danny Green’s podcast Inside The Green Room is the perfect place to do so, as the Lakers player hosts a podcast where he talks about what’s going on in the NBA. He has had Lakers teammates as guests, like Dwight Howard, Alex Caruso, and Jared Dudley.
There are also multiple Lakers podcasts hosted by reporters or fans, where they talk about the season and everything that is happening in the NBA. You can find them easily in Spotify.
3) Re-Watch Classic NBA Games
With the Covid-19 suspending the games, the league made NBA League Pass free and available for everyone. This means that some NBA classic games are available. Here are some of the best Lakers games that you can re-watch.
Game 6 of the 2000 NBA Finals: Lakers-Pacers
