Do the Lakers have any rivals?
With 16 NBA championships under the team's belt, the Los Angeles Lakers have quite a few rivals. Most notable would be the Boston Celtics, the only NBA team currently with more championships than the Lakers at 17. In recent seasons, the success that the Golden State Warriors achieved has turned the meetings between the two into a major rivalry. Sharing the Staples Center with the Los Angeles Clippers has made for interesting games and has created an in-house rival not seen anywhere in the NBA.
What is the atmosphere like at a Los Angeles Lakers game?
Location is everything. The Lakers have the advantage over most NBA clubs as they are located close to the movie capital of the world, Hollywood.

Jack Nicholson is a mainstay, but don’t be surprised to also see Denzel Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio, Dyan Cannon, Ice Cube, Flea and Andy Garcia among the many stars enjoying a Lakers game.
