With their 2009 title, the Lakers improved to 15-15 in the NBA Finals. Here is a look at how they have compiled that record.
Led by dominant big man George Mikan, the Lakers won five titles in six years in Minneapolis (1949-50; 1952-54). They also reached the 1959 Finals behind Rookie of the Year Elgin Baylor but lost to the Celtics, who launched their run of eight consecutive championships. The Lakers moved to Los Angeles in 1960.
