This one is much better. I thought the king of LA one was a bit premature (defacing it was obviously ridiculous Iím not saying that). But I like this one acknowledging that heís joining a pre-existing lineage of greatness.

I understand leaving out Mikan because it is in LA....but you simply have to include West.....him and Elgin put the LA Lakers on the map....without West, there probably is no Wilt...etc., etc.

No I completely understand. My point was it's an amazing piece of work, no need to miss the forest for the trees. We've had more all time greats than any other team. Just enjoy the job the artist did

West is trying to figure out what player posters to cover our banners with this year.

Seattle really wants their Sonics back. Living there at the moment, I know they were really disappointed they couldn't get the Kings. Send them the dippers.

I really don't understand how anyone could root for the clippers.

Yeah I realize West has another job now but it's still ridiculous to leave him out considering all he's done on and off the court. As I recall West did want to come back home to the Lakers before taking a position with another organization.
Actually if they were going to leave out West on the legends mural would've preferred they just do something promoting the current team with the kids and Lebron.

I think this is a private mural so if you want to know why West was left out you would need to ask the artist. I don't think West is on the same level as these five players.

I agree...it is great...but if I had that talent, I would have included West, Dr. Buss and Chick. West similar to Magic, Kobe, etc....then found a way to include Buss and Chick maybe in a less dominant manner.

As a Laker, I think West has a case with Shaq...and definitely is a more important Laker than Wilt. Also....West is so much more than a player to the Lakers.

I wouldn't have put Lebron down low looking up at guys who are his peers, not his superiors, as all-time NBA greats even if Lebron hasn't reached the mountain top yet as a Laker. But outside of that, it's a good piece.
