Yeah but not as a Laker.

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.


yeah, not sure Lebron would love this mural.....but I do. Gotta to climb to the top of the mountain wearing PnG if you want to be a great Laker. This is not Miami....we do not honor players based on what they accomplished for other teams.

Just go full-blown Lakers exceptionalism? I like it.

I have so many good responses....but probably best I do not share them in a lounge thread.

The power of this image to me is I see 5 players in the top 6-7 all time. Think about that. Unreal.

I like it. This is not a Lebron mural, it's a Laker mural. He hasn't done squat as a Laker yet. He's in his rightful place in that painting.

I disagree. I see it as a Lebron mural. The whole focus point is clearly on him looking up. But I do agree with you that he is in his rightful place in the painting.

I think his focus point is the focus point, and he's clearly focused on past Laker greats

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.


As a LAKER, he sure as hell is, still arguably the greatest legacy of them all. As an NBA player, he's RIGHT THERE pretty close with them.

This painting isn't just Laker players playing there whole career with the Lakers. If it was then he would be up there. West was a great player. But all these guys on this painting are tier I. West is maybe tier II.

Instead of appreciating this for what it is...let's have no information about its commission and complain about a perceived slight to a player we all love and respect but most of us never even watched live.

Yes he did. But the painting says Great Western Forum. Technically incorrect.

Most of them never watched Wilt live either. He's up there, and it was on the team with Jerry West that he won that title here.

So no excuse.
